After President Donald Trump tore national anthem kneeling NFL players to shreds, the league’s commissioner — Roger Goodell — issued a statement on Friday condemning the commander in chief’s comments at an Alabama campaign rally.
“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture,” Goodell said in the statement. “There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we’ve experienced over the last month. Divisive comments like [Trump’s] demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”
However, Donald Trump Jr. chimed in and utterly destroyed the embattled commissioner:
“If only Roger Goodell cared as much about domestic abuse and traumatic brain injury as he does about disrespecting America. #nfl.”

In recent years, Goodell has been in hot water for not doing enough to combat the major concussion problem facing players and giving longer suspensions to players who do recreational drugs than those who attack women.
And now, allowing players to disrespect the national anthem and American flag could end his career as NFL’s top dog.
There’s no telling what will happen next.
