Trump Tells NFL Anthem Kneelers to 'Be Happy, Be Cool!'

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

The Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association released a statement on its Facebook page on Friday, asking their members to not buy Dolphins tickets. "I told them that should they change their stance, we would reconsider".

The Miami Dolphins did not immediately return a request for comment. But after teams actually began instituting policies to fine players for kneeling, outrage led to the NFL suspending that policy and they're still working with the NFL Player's Association to determine the best course or action.

Jordan is just one of many players who has questioned why Trump would get involved with the debate over the protests. "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" he added.

Discord confirms plans to sell games via dedicated store
It was confirmed via email by a representative that "all games [offered on the storefront] will be curated by Discord ". This will also serve as a discovery service that will promote games with a boutique feel according to the announcement.


Trump has attacked those kinds of protests for more than a year, even going so far as to say that players who do not stand for the national anthem "maybe shouldn't be in the country", the NBC News reported. The teams then could decide how and whether to punish offending personnel.

Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season, and he also had talks with quarterback Drew Brees about promoting social justice, TMZ reports.

However, the National Football League changed course last month and said players wouldn't be penalized, putting their new policy on hold.

An increasing number of players joined him, but critics perceived the protests as unpatriotic and disrespectful of the American flag and USA military.

But, that wasn't the most pointed Tweet at the president from Jordan.

The players are part of a growing number of athletes who have used that moment to protest police brutality and racial inequality, something Broward PBA Vice President Rod Skirvin called "disrespectful and disgusting".
