Two Miami Dolphins players took a knee during the national anthem before their Thursday night preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wide receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled behind their teammates, who were lined up standing along the sideline. Additionally, Miami defensive end Robert Quinn stood and raised his first (which he also did last season with the Los Angeles Rams).
Friday morning, President Donald Trump—who has waged war with the NFL over the anthem protests—chastised the players and implored them to, “Be happy! Be cool!”

@ 0:58. You are probably the stupidest youtuber ever if you think Donald Trump doesn't know what these players are protesting. Makes me wonder if you even know what they're protesting cause you wouldn't say it either.
All of you are right , Trump should ignore NFL , along with every one else . Hope they go broke !
The only thing that would be better if there were little fat Idiot Trump dolls the players could kneel on (Marshawn Lynn might piss on one). These players are serious about their silent protests, meaning no disrespect to the flag, the country, or servicemen – no matter how much Orange Boy and you ignorant mothafuckas try to spin it. The NFL still profits, the games are still exciting, and Trump is still an idiot.
They aren't grown ass men. They're stuck in their teenage super star mind sets and have the mental and emotional capacity of children soTrump is talking to them like children. Their whole movement is an antiwhite and antiTrump movement as it picked up momentum once Trump was elected while they raise their black power fists. They do this to cover the overwhelming criminality among blacks in America and not face the atrocities committed daily by their own. They've been delusioned to reality ever since they got their privileged football scholarships in high school. Grown ass men? Pfft 🤦♂️Life not going your way? Blame a white conservative male.
None of these whinin punk football players would have the balls to join the military! If not for football half of them would be in jail for wife beating.
Death to america,
MAGA 2020!!!!!!! this is fake news
That mf acting like he controls there money
Money, Power, Respect
Sick and tired of that hateful racist man they call president. He needs to keep quite and not worry about stupid silly things like the national anthem.
Who’s still part of the dislike squad? #justiceforbudden
Suspend them already and move on. Your free and have enough money to move anywhere in the world. If you don’t like America then peace out. Nobody should be able to protest and still get paid. Y’all ruining the NFL
Poor NFL its dieing. No one watches anymore. Maybe drop the anthem and have lil pump come out and get a mash pit going instead to bring back some excitement
I second that sentiment
Thank you Trump, very cool!
So the left and the right don’t want us to watch the nfl? Hmm
Complex be like,
"Trump doesn't say bless you to pregnant woman after sneezing incident."
Fuck Donald Trump
You should'nt protest at your job lmao, ungrateful pussy's bro smh
NFL, full of disrespectful who think their child like antics actually mean something 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
Make a giant banner protesting police brutality for players to hold, is that a bad idea or lupole that would expose these illiterate Trump supporters who can't get a clue or grip on reality to save their delusional lives while negating a kneeling argument?
Don't kneel gentlemen. Raise your fuckin fists up!!
STAND UP AND BOYCOTT THE nfl. national felons league is pure garbage.
You look like Bruno Dickemz
How come the players never protest against blacks killing other blacks at higher rates than police do
Why don’t the players just leave the US and play in the CFL if they disagree with the way things in America are going
National Anthem is country music and I don't fuck with country music.
Did complex look into what these "grown asks men" did in the off season. Did these men help any community or just blow their money in strip clubs, then complain & protest, like low-information idiot NFL players do.
Trump is right
Them not standing up for the national anthem is disrespecting America and what it represents the reason why they're not standing up is because of trump 😂
Speedy should no be talking about grown ass man wen he build like a middle school kid 😂🤣
Why is speedy wearing a vest und—
its funny because i dont think the players know what the theyre kneeling for either💀just a bunch of out of touch rich people
