SHS: If NFL Wants to Protest ‘Police Brutality,’ Protest Police Officers Protecting Them

The White House Press Secretary suggested the NFL players protesting the national anthem are hypocrites.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a press briefing on Monday that if NFL players want to protest “police brutality,” they should protest police officers protecting them on the field instead of protesting the American flag.

A reporter had asked why President Trump tried to discern the motivations of white supremacists and national anthem protesters, before Sanders pointed out what she calls the NFL players’ hypocrisy.
