As if the threat of nuclear crisis with North Korea, and the presumed failure of a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare wasn’t enough on the president’s plate– now Donald Trump has decided to wage a fight with the NFL.

While using some colorful language at a Friday rally, Trump decried NFL players who knelt during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial injustice.  Trump called the protests disrespectful to the country as well as to its military and encouraged fans to protest teams whose players participate in the protest.

But that didn’t stop hundreds of players from either locking arms or kneeling during the start of their games Sunday. Even some team owners joined in defiance of the president’s language and Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady called the president’s words  “divisive.”

Ron Sullivan, a law professor and director of the Harvard Criminal Justice Institute; Joe Malone, former Massachusetts state treasurer and Trump supporter; and Stephen Freyer, president of the sports, entertainment, and broadcasting agency company Freyer Management, joined Jim Braude to discuss whether Trump’s comments will have a lasting impact on the game or if it will soon become a forgotten headline.
