Margaret and Helen: You know whats really dispectful to the American flag? A Confederate flag.#Ta

You know whatís really dispectful to the American flag? †A Confederate flag.†#TakeAKnee

Margaret, last week six football players knelt during the national anthem. †This week it was 200. †And just like Colin Kaepernick, they werenít making a statement about the flag. †I swear this president is so stupid, he couldnít find his ass if both hands were in his back pockets.†

Lord help me, but Iíve taken a knee and I donít want to get up. †Maybe I canít get up. †Iím not sure which. †Three and a half million American citizens are in crisis in Puerto Rico, North Korea is threatening Armageddon, Russia used Facebook to influence our elections, Nazis are running over young women, Congress wants to take healthcare away from poor peopleÖ and our president has nothing better to do except name calling to get a cheer at his Klan rally.

As the widow of a veteran, I have no issue with any player taking a knee to protest during the national anthem. He has every bit as much right to do that as Donald Trump had to say that McCain wasnít a war hero because he had been captured. Protecting that right is what my husband and McCain fought for. And all those Trump supporters calling for a football boycott lost their moral high ground when they put that man in the Oval Office.

A black football player peacefully protests well-documented inequalities that exist within out legal system and a bunch of crackers in Alabama cheer when the President calls him a son-of a-bitch. Are we really surprised? After all, those same hillbillies had no problem when the President called a bunch of protesting Nazis fine people. If we should be outraged about anything, itís that we have a President who seems to be more comfortable in a white hood than the White House.
