President Donald Trump received some harsh criticism from the NFL on Saturday from the NFL as well as some of the NBA’s top players after he publicly bashed prominent athletes for kneeling during the national anthem, putting himself in the center of a controversy that has almost over shadowed the start of the season.
On Saturday morning NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell scolded Trump in a statement calling the President “divisive” for remarks he made at a rally in Alabama Friday night, while on the other hand one of the most famous athletes in the world, LeBron James, called Trump a “bum” for a Saturday morning tweet aimed at the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Goodell said Trump’s criticism of NFL players kneeling in protest during the National Anthem show a “lack of respect” for the league and its players.
