Even if there was contempt behind it, is he allowed to say that on ESPN airtime? Is he getting a ‘talking to’ for even suggesting this?
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, the Vice President walked out of the game when the protest happened.
He was pretty clear about his reasons, too.

He’s not ‘thwarting rights’ he’s calling for respect. And not even of himself or his office. Respect of all those men and women who have worn that flag on their shoulders. And respect of all those men and women who had a folded one presented to their next of kin.
But the sportscasters lean pretty far to the left. And they sympathize with the ‘Protest’.
But that doesn’t mean they’re blind.
Stephen A. Smith can see what’s happening out there.
Lebron might not ‘get it’, but he does.
Smith might not LIKE it, but he can see it for what it is.
As far as the messaging over the NFL Protests, they’ve misfired and angered the base.
Check out what else Doug Giles has to say about the NFL:
Trump is winning. Sooooo much winning.
Smith even used the word ‘hijacked’. As in: “what it really really comes down to is the president has successfully hijacked this issue. He’s turned it into an issue about patriotism and beyond…”
Yeah. A blind squirrel could have found that nut.
But we’re still not sure why the LEAGUE still hasn’t caught up to that.
Maybe if they had someone like this guy as a dad or grandpa, the league wouldn’t be quite so ‘dim’.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
