Trump attacks National Football League protesters

NFL player responds to Trump's tweet: 'What a goober'

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan responded to President Donald Trump's latest tweet about player protests during the national anthem in which the president again suggested players should be suspended without pay if they refuse to stand.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase has said he was not telling his players what to do during the anthem and the team did not have a policy regarding anthem protests before Thursday night's game.

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem", Trump tweeted on Friday, a day after several players kneeled or otherwise protested during the national anthem before preseason games. Earlier this year, the National Football League had announced players would be penalized for kneeing during the anthem but later reversed course. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define. Find another way to protest.

"We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the national anthem", the union said in a statement.

The anthem-kneeling controversy has been raging since 2016 when Colin Kaepernick, then a quarterback with the 49ers, first refused to stand as a lone protest against police brutality, particularly toward black Americans and racial oppression.

On Thursday before the Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers faced off in a preseason game at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled while other players raised their fists in the air.

Jordan continued, adding two more tweets in which he called Trump "a Goober" who "won't govern himself". "We are the anomalies", he was quoted as saying in the report.
