Donald Trump should stick to his job, or get out

The NFL released a statement in response to Trump’s remarks.

“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and player to the terrible national disasters we’ve experienced over the last month. Divisive comments like these demonstrate and unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities”

I applaud the quick response; however, why not mention Kapernick and the $ 1 million dollars he has pledged to organizations in an effort to aide social relations in America? He’s the real patriot right? If the players are at their best when creating unity in our country, then isn’t Kapernick a perfect example?

The Players Union just recognized him as the league’s week one MVP for his contributions. Failing to address the elephant in the room, and by elephant, I mean the obvious racism makes the statement invalid, but it’s not over. Trump continues with the NBA, just in time for basketball season.

Yesterday in the press conference, Steph Curry simply said, “I don’t want to go to the White House.”

“That we don’t stand for basically what our President has – the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times, that we won’t stand for it. And by acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to,” the NBA champion explained.
