After President Donald Trump lashed out on Twitter about the NFL players who protested during the national anthem before Thursday's league-wide exhibition games, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan slammed the president, calling him a "goober".

Tapper on Friday accused the president of sowing division ahead of a weekend anniversary of last summer's violent "Unite the Rally" in Charlottesville, Va. - where white supremacists clashed with counter-protest - by condemning NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem instead.

"The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem", the president wrote. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their "outrage" at something that a lot of them are unable to define.

"I think that the more that we give credence to stuff like that, the more it's gonna live on", Rodgers said in an interview with NFL.com reporter Mike Silver last week.

Trump took notice of a small number of players who protested during the anthem in various ways. "How about we get a statement on the "unite the right" rally 2 be held in DC this weekend. a year after the first one in Charlottesville?"
