Trump Rips 'Fake News' CNN, Calls Kelly Protest Report a 'Lie'

Many Oakland Raiders players joined in Sunday's NFL protest against President Donald Trump's remarks calling for players to be fired if they don't stand for the national anthem.

Sunday's protests throughout the NFL brought mixed opinions by people all over the country and locally, it all centers around the American flag and our national anthem.

At a private dinner with conservative leaders Monday evening, Trump said his National Football League comments have "really caught on", according to an attendee, who noted the President told them, "I said what millions of Americans were thinking".

The remark was a likely nod to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who garnered attention previous year for refusing to stand during the anthem.

Oliver closed his scathing review of Trump's extra-curricular activities with a jab at Jeanine Pirro, the Fox News host who spoke openly on Sunday morning in support of the president's statements. He said team owners shouldn't allow players to express political views. "And to just see in seven years how far we've gotten to the respect of this country, it's a little alarming and troubling", ended Follett.

"After this first week", Quinn said, "I think people wanted to come out loud and clear and say, 'This isn't cool'".

On Friday, the president said players who protest the anthem should be fired.

The NFL began the practice of having players on the sideline during the national anthem in 2009, although some teams had observed the tradition previously.

All of the Steelers remained in the locker room during the anthem except for offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who served three tours in Afghanistan as an Army Ranger.

More players than ever took a knee on Sunday, sometimes locking arms in solidarity and National Football League owners supporting them. Some NFL players also locked arms or held up fists in solidarity. Childress says he told his team that, "anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in".

One of the biggest protests took place in the nation's capital, where nearly the entire line-up of the Oakland Raiders team sat on their bench ahead of their game with the Washington Redskins.

He said players were disrespectful to the USA flag. "Fire or suspend!" Trump tweeted.

"If the President wants to engage in something positive, productive and constructive", Lockhart said, "he knows our number".
