Trump vs. Tattooed Millionaires – The president has baited professional athletes into throwing a tantrum.

Social media exploded this weekend after President Trump, at a rally in Alabama, urged NFL owners to “fire” players who refuse to stand for the national anthem before games. He later exhorted fans to boycott the league until players stopped “disrespecting Flag and Country.” NFL running back LeSean “Shady” McCoy called Trump an “asshole,” and NBA superstar LeBron James called the president a “bum.” After Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said that he was considering not attending an event at the White House, Trump disinvited the whole team.
