President Trump has had enough of NFL football players disrespecting the American flag and the National Anthem.
And Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, agrees!

“I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag,” Jerry Jones told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone last week. “So that’s not the place to do anything other than honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little bit for it.”
These NFL protests have gotten out of control. Yes, we have freedom of speech in this country. And many have fought and died for that freedom. But there’s a time and place for everything, and the time during which we are honoring our flag and the men and women who sacrificed everything for it, is decidedly NOT the time, or the place.
I happened to be at the Tennessee Titans game against the Seattle Seahawks, in Nashville on Sunday. No players from either team came onto the field to honor the flag or the anthem. And I personally know avid Titans fans who have vowed never to return to that stadium again.
So, while those NFL players have their right to free speech, we, too, have the right to respond with our wallets.
So I say, GO COWBOYS! And I know President Trump does, too!
If you are a new (or old) Cowboys fan, at least a little now, please Share this everywhere, and comment, “Go Cowboys!”
