Trump Celebrates Having Created National Firestorm Over NFL Player Protests: “It’s Really Caught On”

CNN reports:

President Donald Trump sounded very satisfied with his recent remarks on patriotism and the NFL in a dinner with conservative group leaders at the White House Monday night, according to a person who attended the event.

“It’s really caught on. It’s really caught on,” Trump said of his NFL comments to attendees at the dinner, according to someone who attended. “I said what millions of Americans were thinking.” “You could really tell he was satisfied,” this person in the room said about the President’s comments.

Trump was referencing his crusade over the weekend in which he harshly criticized players who kneel during the national anthem. Many players who have done so have said they are protesting police brutality.

Trump also reportedly again ridiculed Jeff Sessions at the dinner.

        Probably. But, his racism is why he’s attracted to Bannon, Gorka, Miller, and any other white nationalist he brought into the WH.

    • Todd20036

      He doesn’t even realize that he’s in the news because people hate him, including some of those who voted for him, because being patriotic means espousing the Constitution, not a cloth flag.

      He wanted unity. I don’t think is exactly what he had in mind though.

  • so, does anyone have any stories about friends or co-workers who voted for this idiot having buyers remorse? or are they too embarrassed to come forward?

    • TampaDink

      Not yet….and I doubt that I will ever hear that kind of admission from one of my siblings or her husband.

    • Jeffg166

      I don’t see anymore we have to give him a chance lines.

    • JP

      One of my friends is actually very proud to have voted for him and admires his “toughness.” He’s also black and gay. I’m confused.

    • Ken M

      Still getting the eye rolls and the “Look at the option” line as excuse.

    • shivadog

      Nope, my redneck friend doesn’t believe anything about Trump, it’s all “fake news” to him. (but he believes anything about Hillary, no matter how ridiculous) The gay people I know that voted for him don’t seem to have changed their minds. I don’t understand it. There is no reasoning with these people.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Yes, co-worker who before the election chastised me about a remark I made about Lord Dampnut and his lieges ,”hey, now”, I suppose you’re a Hillary supporter” dripping with disdain. I responded that whom I support does not matter, the point is that he is dangerous to our country, he’s a failed business man hell bent on ratings and does not care about anyone but himself.. She said, “I’m not so sure, I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree.

      Two weeks ago she was experiencing issues with e-mil and Excel (she is completely incompetent,) , she came to me in tears about it and I’m thinking WTF? She apologized for crying and listed a laundry list of health issues and that her step son (whom she cared nothing about till he became a Marine and she can milk is for sympathy) was being deployed to Kuwait. I responded, “I’m truly sorry your having these issues and especially that Zack is being deployed, that must be difficult. It really is unfortunate that you received these diagnosis’ now because it may cost a whole lot more in the near future if Trump kills the Affordable Care Act and these will be pre-existing conditions that you will have to cover much of the bill yourself. But, I’m sorry to have to add, you voted for this, so what’s the problem?”
      We speak very little and there have been no more teary eyed moments with me.

      Edit: Forgot to mention that she asked what the Affordable Care Act had to do with it, they’re trying to get rid of Obamacare.

      • clay

        Just like they want to get rid of DACA, but don’t want the Dreamers deported.

    • DJ John Bear

      According to my husband, who still remains friends with the couple I’ve written off, has said that one of them regrets his voting for Trump. Interestingly, they are a gay couple on disability, and both have health issues. Prior to the elections, they crowed about how the US needs a man like Trump to “shake things up”, but now that it’s coming back to bite them it (may) be an entirely different story.

      Suffice to say that things have not changed from my end.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    He’s so tone deaf he doesn’t realize that the furor over the #TakeAKnee issue is all the anger is against him and how he’s handled it. Oh yeah, and the Trump name has become toxic for business. So there’s that good news.

    He said what millions of people were wrongly thinking. And he did it to inflame dangerous divisions, feed the gaping void of his ego, and distract from his many ongoing failures, crimes, and derelictions of duty.

  • The_Wretched

    Trump is Unfit. We knew that already. The diversity of the evidence is pretty impressive. In today’s example, we see just how badly he misreads normal messaging. He’s not capable of seeing that the sports community owners went from keeping quiet or hostile to the protests to supporting them. That’s bad for Trump – only he doesn’t seem to understand it.

    • Mark McGovern

      It appears the vast majority of Americans agree with him, according to polling. So it is arguable he has misread nothing, and in fact has interpreted the mood correctly, to his political advantage. The ever present threat is to underestimate him.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        My borscht is cold.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        How can someone so “sharp” fail into bankruptcy so many times, starting off with a huge inherited advantage?

        • boatboy_srq

          Bankruptcy is actually pretty smart given how much he’d grifted. If he’d been held responsible for all the funds he’s lost, he’d never have been able to snag Tsar-a-Lago or the DC Kremlin/hotel or run for pResident.

        • Mark McGovern

          You got me, but he won the nomination against all odds, and he won the election against all odds, and he is now President. We better not keep underestimating him, or it will be 7 more fucked up years, not 3.

          Edit: Actually, it could be more if manages to seize total power, which I personally believe is his plan (divide citizens, demonize the press, generate fear to criticize him, abolish or control institutions).

          • Gerry Fisher

            Instead of wagging your finger about “underestimating him,” how about some suggestions for alternative strategies? Got any solutions? (The only thing I can think of is to do our very best not to participate when he creates a mob-riling distraction like this. And it’s very, VERY hard to get everyone on the same page in this regard.)

          • Mark McGovern

            Wagging my finger? I was simply expressing an opinion -there’s absolutely no need to be condescending. And yes, I do have a suggestion – stop underestimating him, or lose again. That was my suggestion from the get go, in response to an initial comment in this thread that stated “we see just how badly he misreads normal messaging”, and to which I disagreed. So here’s my suggestion, and some more finger wagging, since you asked for it: let’s stop wringing our hands and calling him and his supporters names in the hopes that will win the next election – it will not. Those people we deride – we need to win some of them them back. Name calling makes us look like them – that’s it. I said from the get go when he won: let’s march, and drove 3000 miles to do so in June, and I have to say there were precious few of us on the mall listening to the speeches of people who made the effort to be there and speak – although I admit it was bloody hot, and there was a major party going on adjacent to the speech area. So I say again, march. Be visible. Create new alliances instead of alienating potential alliances due disagreements on religion and culture. Re-organize. Create policy. Call your representatives and voice support. I’m willing to march again.

      • The_Wretched

        I haven’t seen the polling.

        • Mark McGovern

          for example, CBS Sports reported on a poll where 72 percent “found Kaepernick’s antics to be unpatriotic (via CBS Sports)”. There are a number of polls I looked at that all trend toward Trump.

          • clay

            If those polls are referencing Kaepernick, they were conducted long before Trump started yelling “Fire them all!”

          • Mark McGovern

            Yeah that was last Sept.

            Tried to find others: Brietbart reports Remington Research Group at 61% Trump 25% players. CATO institute says 61% oppose players being fired. Maybe there is really nothing concrete out there yet.

          • Gerry Fisher

            I’d like to see a poll about whether Americans agree that government representatives should be telling private companies whom they should hire and fire.

      • Gerry Fisher

        Nobody’s underestimating him. At worst, this was a misjudgment about one of his tactics. We can’t control how much the media plays up this kind of crap, and that feeds into Trump’s ability to rile up a mob. That being said, his “ability to rile up a mob” will not necessarily win him any more elections, it won’t put campaign donations in his coffer, it won’t win him any more support from establishment Republicans, and it won’t stop Mueller from continuing to do his job.

        • Mark McGovern

          I do so hope you are right.

      • mark99k

        Ermm, a poll taken yesterday & today and mentioned on this very site (http://www.joemygod.com/2017/09/26/poll-majority-oppose-trump-nfl-protests/) says 57% *oppose* Trump on this issue. Is 43% considered a vast majority now?

        • Mark McGovern

          Yeah I just saw that today. The article on JMG was not posted at he time I commented yesterday, nor could I really find much else on it by searching, not that I’m any Google Master by any stretch, and no, 43% is not a vast majority. I am glad to see these polling numbers, and believe me I’m glad to admit I was wrong. I’ve been fighting with the other side all week about this.

        • Mark McGovern

          FYI, CNN poll:

          “Overall, 49% say the protesting players are doing the wrong thing to express their political opinion when they kneel during the National Anthem, while 43% say it’s the right thing. Those views are sharply divided by race, partisanship and age.

          Among whites, 59% say the players are doing the wrong thing while 82% of blacks say it’s the right thing to do.

          Almost 9 in 10 Republicans say it’s the wrong thing (87%) while just about three-quarters of Democrats say the opposite (72%).

          Six in 10 Americans say that Trump did the wrong thing.

          http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/29/politics/national-anthem-nfl-cnn-poll/index.html

    • Lumpy Gaga

      OTOH, paying audience was booing, and the season has just started: how many times can you pull this protest off (to this extent) before it just (mostly) dies off like yesterday’s hashtag?

      • Rambie

        The Cowboys were on an away game. the opposing team often get boos

        • clay

          and the articles carefully omit that the home-team Cardinals did basically the same thing.

    • boatboy_srq

      Openly calling for a major segment of the US economy to fail because some participants do something vaguely discomfiting didnt help much either.

  • Mark McGovern

    I have been arguing with Trump supporters about this issue. I was of the view it was a constitutionally protected freedom of expression. However, I did read a legal analyst’s opinion on CNN it would NOT be first amendment protected at football games as it would be an employer decision. In other words, if the employer says stand – you stand. On the other hand (from my perspective), if the employer says do pirouettes while listening to Cher, must you do so? I would think not if it had no impact on the job for which you were hired.

    Any JMG legal buffs have an opinion to help me out with this?

    • Gustav2

      The DoD is paying for the pregame ceremonies as an advertisement. Part of the millions the government has paid was the players had to be on the field.

      • Mark McGovern

        So how could the Steelers decide not to take the field if contractually obligated?

        • Gustav2

          I don’t know what they are going to do with that. It is not in the official NFL rule book, but in a thing they call the Bible, so it is not a fireable offense.

          Of course if the rule maker is with you, the owner, it gives additional leeway.

        • fkevin

          We won’t know without seeing union and free agent contracts. We do know the Steelers had a player’s meeting to decide if they would protest and how they would protest. The media reported it was the coach’s plan while covering the Villanueva SNAFU.

      • fkevin

        And many stadiums have been built with public funding.

      • Mark McGovern

        Well I like that answer; is it a legal opinion applicable to this case? Are there precedents?

        • -M-

          Not a lawyer, but…
          There’s probably good arguments to be made on both sides about how free the team owners are to fire players over speech that’s not directly related to their job. The first amendment says the government can’t tell either of them what to do though.

          • Mark McGovern

            That’s what I was thinking – what right has he to direct the employers to suppress expression.

    TRUMP RUNS OUT OF CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS

    Washington (AP) — Following the refusal of intercollegiate Quidditch champions The Knoxville Nerds, President Donald Trump has admitted running out of winning teams to invite to the White House.

    This follows defiant refusals from not only major league teams, but winners from several amateur sporting associations, including the Mid-Atlantic Camel Wrestling Federation, the North American Ferret Legging League, and the Competitive Ironing Coalition.

    One group, Sons of the Confederacy Frisbee Golf champions, the Mississippi Marauders, particularly condemned Trump’s recent remarks. Spokesman Cletus Mayo issued a statement reading, “This cracker’s just way too racist — even for us.”

    An unnamed White House spokesman says the President still holds out hope that the 2016 Finnish Bog Snorkeling team may unexpectedly accept his last-minute invitation.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Except that Pittsburgh’s NHL franchise has decided that going to the White House is still an honor.

      I rewatched Madam Secretary recently. Well, part of it. I got to that scene where President Dalton tells Elizabeth that he hired her because he knew she’d tell him the truth, even if the truth wasn’t necessarily what he wanted to hear, and because she’d tell him when he was wrong.

      I cried and had to turn it off. It’s too depressing to see competence in the White House, even from an actor pretending to be a president.

  • Halou

    How can he claim victory? The entire NFL is against him, even players and team managers who were initially uncomfortable about the kneeling protest embraced it out of solidarity. The people who deigned to respond to him got a much more positive reception, so much so that calling the president a ‘bum’ and ‘asshole’ received no negative push-back whatsoever.

    This is the UN all over again. Trump boasted that he had “won” the general assembly because his name was mentioned in more tweets than was any other world leader. Never mind that half of it is because he is president of the USA and is always going to get more attention than, say, the president of Nambia. And the rest of the name drops were negative in nature.

    Feedback loop of doom. He doesn’t know when to cut his losses.

    From Trump’s book Art of the Deal: “”You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on…”

    As long as Trump can rile up his base with distracting tweets and speeches, and for as long as we allow him to blame someone else, he never has to deliver.

    I was going to write about how unbelievable it is that the president of the US was proud to have started a shit storm over meaningless matters. But who am I kidding. This is right in his wheel house. Why focus on running this fucking country when he can delude himself with how much his adoring fans adore him for “taking a stand” against people peacefully protesting.

    Perhaps it’ll take some not so peaceful protests to drive home how unhappy most of this country really is with him. I don’t condone violence. However, even JFK understood: Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

    That poor man, he actually believes that he is consequential and that his ideas will prevail.

      Thank the deity for the necktie.

        It needn’t have been that big.

    He should be happy (I don’t say that with any glee or cheer), he’s once again found a way to hijack the narrative while simultaneously deflecting the media off Russia, etc. That said, it is nice to see people, even those who support him, finally wising up to his BS. Whether it will stick is another matter.

    At the gym yesterday, I noticed that CNN called in Bob Costas (a sports guy) and spent 20 minutes on the NFL and taking a knee. Must have given tRump a hard on.

    Management by chaos and distractions.
    And he’s still an asshole.

  • paganguy

    When this is the only accomplishment you have to brag about, you should really just shut up. Sadly, it won’t happen.

  • Todd

    It’s really caught on …….

    Well, it oughta fucken celebrate. It managed to take the narrative away from (a) the three recent hurricanes, each worse than the last; (b) the impending nuclear war with North Korea; (c) the continuing efforts to take healthcare away from the people; and (d) the Russia investigation. Hell, I’d be celebrating too if I were it.

    Need I add that I am fucken sick of hearing about this? Or is that obvious?

  • MBear

    oh shut up

  • infmom

    And all the tea bag waggers who were orgasmic over Tim Tebow are the ones spewing the trumpadoodle line now.

  • Bj Lincoln

    The idiot is a bully with power but is clueless. He brags about every thing he can get his name connected to even when he didn’t do a thing. He thinks, reads and speaks like an 8 year old!

  • WretchedMouse

    “It’s really caught on. It’s really caught on,” Trump said of his NFL comments to attendees at the dinner, according to someone who attended. “I said what millions of Americans were thinking”

    Aka…people calling him out on his b.s. and telling him what a douche canoe he is. He heard what everyone was thinking. Womp womp

  • Stubenville

    Fiddling while Rome burns San Juan becomes a third-world hell hole. What an incompetent ass.

  • He really is delusional.

    Or, he just craves attention, and it doesn’t matter what kind.

  • ColdCountry

    What’s really caught on is the solidarity of people against you.
