Trump Speaks On Nike

President Trump recently spoke on Nike’s decision to sponsor failed former quarterback Colin Kaepernick in their commercial.

Trump tweeted “What was Nike thinking?”

And later in an interview with Fox stated, “I don’t like what Nike did. I don’t think it was appropriate what they did,” he added. “I honor the flag. I honor our national anthem, and most of the people in our country feel the same way.”


  • Patrick Feeney

    The NFL can go to HELL! And take Nike and Levi’s with them!

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    If Kaepernick thinks things are so ” unjust” in America, then go live somewhere else.
    It seems to me that what is truly unjust is to reward him for being anti-American!!!
    I agree completely with President Trump!!!

    • eclemensen

      It is what Kaspernick is trying to keep from happening. Trump has not only stated that he thinks he should be President for life, but everyone and I mean everyone is suppose to stand and cla- for him just like they do for Kim Jong Un. It’s on video if you care to look for it.

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        That is ridiculous. No president is in there for life.
        Obama thinks he is still president, but he isn’t.

        • eclemensen

          Obama stayed quiet during all of Trumps’ arshole remarks during Obama’s reign. When Trump tries to take the credit for everything Obama has done that Trump llkes Obama stayed quiet. but when TRUMP decides to stack the supreme court, (especially when McConnell would not even talk to Obama’s candidate) so that Trump could get away with ANYTHING he wants. It is Obama’s duty as a private citizen to try to correct the issue. It is your duty to actually analyze the implications and the actual actions of the person that had foreign money to help him take over the country. The NRA admits they took money from the Russians. so why would a country that does not allow it’s citizenry to have guns, support an entity that not only is gun happy, but supports a certain President. by the way I own the guns that belonged to my relatives, that I mentioned previously. they all work even though most are over a hundred years old and even at seventy I am still a crack shot.

          • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

            Why can’t you focus long enough to stay on topic?
            You ramble on and on like a crazy person.
            Your thoughts are chaotic and you jump from one thing to another.

          • eclemensen

            Because your topic is full of manure.

          • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

            I didn’t choose this headline, Right Wise did.
            No Nike and Kaepernick are full of manure.

          • eclemensen

            No madam, right wise and especially not Nike or Kaepernick full of manure. I don’t even like football, I can’t afford Nike’s but they do far more to help the kids of this country, then do The republicans cutting food stamps and not regulating guns. Trump’s secretary of education is trying to shut down public education, while the foot ball, and almost all of the athletes are trying build schools and encourage kids to stay in them. Nike spends thousands of dollars helping kids, with not only athletic programs, but actual collage scholarships. The Republicans help the banks keep up the student debts, and raise the interest of student loans. Sure I can hear you now screaming, but a free collage education, is almost a guarantee that we would cure Cancer , heart disease, and food shortages. It is a guarantee that we will be able to travel with out high costs of oil, Oil would be only used as a lubricate, today if the conservatives would allow progress instead of protecting the oil companies, that for the assets to their pocket books. don’t get me wrong, I love my fifty year old convertible, and my forty year old Truck. but the cost of fuel, again with the help of people like Kissinger, and Nixon created a larger profit, unwarranted, for the “special” people. but now I am going to hit you with the real nitty gritty. You hate Obama, you hate Obama care, you won;’t admit it is working, and your biggest problem is the cost. Now that won’t mean a thing unless you claim to be a Christian. the left was helping the sick. Jesus was also helping the sick. the difference is that Jesus KNEW he would be killed for helping the sick. but according to the right it cost to much money, his life of money, which was more important.

          • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

            None of your rambling topics have to do with Nike, Kaepernick nor the NFL.
            You want to go on some tirade about a variety of topics.
            After going to a Dr. for a treatment, I am too tired to figure it all out.

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        You just keep on following me to different sites to harass me with your crap!
        This person eclemensen is a cyber stalking bully.
        He doesn’t even know how to spell his hero Kaepernick’s name.

        • eclemensen

          All you comments are posted on a separate forum, you don’t have to chase around to find them. when a statement comes up in your email. click on your own name and you will see. everyone of your statements.

          • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

            If you hate my comments so much why do you bother to chase me from site to site
            and harass me?

          • eclemensen

            As I mentioned somewhere else ALL YOUR COMMENTS, AS ALL OF MINE, AND AS ALL OF ANYONES are listed together under your handle. All you have to do is click on your pen name, and the link will take you to ALL your comments. Now on the same token, if you don’t like the answers I give you why do you counter comment? To not answer a statement with a question, however, I answer your comments because the damage that the right continues to cause this country IS WHAT DOES BRING IT DOWN. Charity and servility, and championing the underdog is what made and keeps the country great. Not bullying and lies about others, common sense should tell you that Trump and Republican party has been lying to you for decades. In fact that is how Trump came to political prominence, by pointing out that all the other Republican candidates were not even interested in your causes, but stood in line to kiss the Koch rectal ring. but you should have seen his lies coming. Obama could not have become a Senator had Trump been correct. these people are vetted. and after Trump suckered you in then he went back on his own lying streak. I really don’t even like using the word, and its sups tidies, lie, but there is no way to explain it other wise. I’m sure you will counter that Obama lied when he said you could keep your own doctor. but did it ever come to you that your doctor didn’t want to keep you? so now raise hell with me because I didn’t put Capitals where I should. and all the other malarkey you guys come up with when you haven’t a fact to stand on.

          • Mein kampf

            He’s definitely not chasing you for your good looks Susan. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/66cd369f080b91575520dfd0b2f9fd7f632ec15fbb5b012136ecd4988192d14d.jpg Perhaps he’s on a witch-hunt like Mueller?

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        President Trump can express his opinion if he wants to.
        You say this same stupid thing every time you post.
        If everyone stands and claps for Un that is on them, not Americans.

        • eclemensen

          Your context is out of line TRUMP said he wanted Americans to stand and clap just like they do for Un. Furthermore he is willing to use the powers of the white house( which are supposed to be for the country) for his own personal benefit. Yes if everyone in North Korea stands and claps for Un it is on them, or Un will have them executed. Trump has also said that he believes that he should have the same power. The DOJ is not there to investigate his enemies, like Hilary, especially since the crimes suggested are erroneous, the Attorney General is not there to protect him. Loyalty is country first, and he has fired people that did not put him first over country. It is apparently stupid to you because you are not willing to understand that he is king.

          • Mein kampf

            Oh, she understands that he is her King.

          • eclemensen

            Thank you. let’s hope that someday soon she will open her eyes.

    • Bfor Real

      He is an American, and he is NOT going to live anywhere else. He is not protesting the flag or the military, as you and all you Trumpsters know. He is protesting police brutality and injustice in the Justice system being perpetrated against black people. You know it, you deplorables choose to ignore it because it is not happening to you. Shameful

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        He has publicly stated that he will not stand for our flag, nor have any respect for
        our nation because of perceived wrongs. Police brutality against blacks has been
        so inflated. It is there, but not nearly as much as a few sensationalized cases. That
        is what is so shameful. That gives black people an excuse to riot and break into
        businesses, loot, and burn. The MSM wants us to believe that EVERY black person
        who is EVER stopped by the cops is innocent. It gives the impression that EVERY
        cop is dirty and just lying in wait to slay innocent, law abiding blacks.

        • eclemensen

        We signed up to watch football – not some thug protesting- wrong forum take it to the streets. We pay his salary and if they cannot abide by the rules it’s time to pull the plug- his comments are not welcome in most peoples homes. We will no longer allow the liberal News/nonsense into our homes.Political correctness ( Obamas language to cloak corruption and hide the truth) is over and common sense is back.

          • big KAhuna

            I’ll match witts with you any day SFB! The Military stand for our anthem ( been there)
            And NFL rules clearly spell out all players must stand in respect for those who died. Any NFL player not following the rules should be terminated- zero tolerance. Goodell should also be fired for failure to enforce the rules!
            NFL’s game operations manual says it clearly:
            “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
            During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
            This is astounding. Goodell is going against league rules to allow players and teams to disrespect our flag and our country.
            I haven’t watched a single game in two years. And I won’t watch a game this year. Most of my friends feel the same. Note to the NFL, “You’re dead to me.”
            College football is more fun anyway, and at least as of yet since it hasn’t been politicized yet. I don’t watch football for politics. There’s enough of that in everything else. The NFL is doomed their anti American actions have lost the respect of most viewers and its getting worse— kind of like shooting yourself in the foot- stuck on Stupid just like you! No matter a new league will imerge that will be called the “Patriotic Football League”! RIP NFL your days are numbered-Finally, they have gone too far. Fans are losing interest in being lectured by people who are supposed to be entertaining them. Worse, sponsors are pulling out. Advertisers are listening to the fans, and the fans are saying enough is enough. Nike will soon get the boot also!

        He’s wrong because a lot of people don’t watch the NFL at all.
        More and more have stopped watching it, due to the anthem protests.
        We have grown tired of the race card and race baiting, so
        I guess you can say we do ignore it even more now.
        Doing a publicity stunt will not bring about the desired changes.
        Some police are bad apples and they will be dealt with. But to
        say they ALL are bad is just NOT TRUE. The majority of cops
        are good law enforcement officers. Racial prejudice comes
        from all races. It is a fact. Constantly getting in people’s faces
        and playing the race card has not helped. It doesn’t encourage
        peace and understanding. Your intention was to cause more
        of a racial divide and start a cultural war.

    Stop watching the NFL. AS soon as the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ goes South the owners and players will all have a mind change. “Money talks, Bullshit walks”. It is clearly the wrong platform for these players to use?

    It’s high time that we realize that the Twisted agenda and tactics of the left lack
    Common sense and promote division and further destruction of our country.
    It’s time for most Americans to wake up and realize that these acts must be faced with harsh actions— boycott all Democrats from being elected, Fire every one within your companies, never attend their functions or watch their programs. We must treat them like the evil threat they are. the Dems do not serve everyday Americans; nor are they our friends who care for us! They will lie, cheat, steal, take bribes, allow our enemies to get stronger as we get weaker BY THEIR HAND, and they will destroy people or have those they consider threats to their warped version of the ‘greater good’ put ‘away’, one way or another (Vince Foster, Ron Brown and many others)! They consider God and our Constitution as obstacles to their twisted agenda as both the Diety and the Document both hold them to account for their actions. Republicans are not perfect but with our assistance we can move them to where they are serving U.S. and a greater future, one with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as the main points of focus! Now, if we can only get the numbers required to push back all the Illegal and terrorist voters which they are trying to add to their ill-gotten voter contingent.

    The democratic platform has done way to much dammage to our country and those within to ever trust that platform again. The icing on the cake was their selection of a devout Muslim ( OBummer) to serve as our POTUS ( Who swore to be a Christian and US born citizen- nonsense). And they wanted to put the most corrupt and lieing candidate To ever run – Hildabeast in charge. Their is no end to their corruption and destruction to our values/constitution/Allies. They promote: gay rights, abortion ( responsible for 100 million deaths of fetuses), athiesm ( taking God out of America),illegal immigration, Muslim immigration (people who will try to destroy our way of life- sharia law), socialism ( sponsor is Sorros), communism, ignoring our constitution ( all swore to support it before taking public office), world order/takeover, corruption, and cheating at the polls ( over 5 mil illegal votes recorded in 2016- making Trump the Popular vote as well) to get their ways— they are the “SAiTAN” within America and have lost their way. No wonder a record amount of democrats are abandoning this platform by the thousands after showing its ugly head. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/401fbad249efb5fefe5420430034cbe9f58048702d699771f3e45daff8388e77.jpg

    Nike has done a dis-service to their share holders and I am sure they will feel the pain when their projected stocks fall drastically. NFL may continue to purchase Nike gear, but a significant loss by the NFL wont be helpful to Nike either. I believe that the majority of the spending population will re-act negatively because Nike has in the past promoted winners and heroes, and now since Nike has decided to fall into politics, they will only hurt themselves. Putting a failed quarterback who doesn’t even qualify as a free agent anymore is not a good business move, and catering to whiners and thugs is not good practice, either. This is supposed to be America’s sport, other than baseball, and the overpaid and over-privileged players who think that they are above the law, want everything their way and when they get caught breaking the law, they scream police brutality and want to demonstrate on the football field by continuing to show the lack of respect for the country and its symbols, and their excuse is that the football field is their venue. Well there are easily a million truckers across the nation and I am sure that they don’t appreciate all the new laws that are passed down to them, and the highways are their venue, but you don’t see the truckers blocking the highways! I think the NFL disgruntled need to have a few more rules thrown at them! Players who are convicted or a misdemeanor should be suspended without pay for 3 games. Felons should be terminated from play in any league!
