“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’” said President Donald Trump on Friday, September 22, in his latest rant against somebody on something.

Trump was speaking at a rally in Alabama in support of Republican Senator Luther Strange. As usual, he veered into other topics including subjects having nothing to do with policy issues impacting millions of people such as health care.
