What words would YOU greet a newly-minted American to the country with? This judge had something to say about the anti-Trump protests. And about Kaepernick, too.
Fun fact? He didn’t even vote for Trump.
“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo said. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
…He went on to criticize Americans protestors who carry signs saying ‘He’s not my president,’ including some in San Antonio. Primomo lashed out against NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem.
“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” Judge Primomo said. “You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
Primomo later told KENS 5 that he meant his words to be unifying and respectful of the office of the president, not political. He said that he didn’t vote for Donald Trump. —KHOU
Here is an honest judge, who ‘gets’ what it means to live in America.
You vote. Sometimes your guy wins. Sometimes he doesn’t. Either way, the people have spoken, and that is your President or other elected official. Don’t whine, don’t cry. Just deal with it.
You live in a country where your vote shapes the outcome. Not everyone does. That’s something to be thankful for, not to be enraged about.
