[Ed. – How lovely: They’re attempting to get the president to ‘accept’ the display of millionaire athletes refusing to respect and honor the traditions of the country that made them rich. Our respect for Carson just went down.]
Carson said he believes Trump, who once referred to anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick … as a “son of a bitch,” will eventually change his stance.
“I think the important thing is if they are going to kneel during the national anthem that they make sure that people understand why they’re kneeling,” Ben Carson told host Hugh Hewitt. “A lot of people are under the impression that they’re kneeling because they don’t respect our national anthem or they don’t respect the flag or what it stands for. And in fact, I don’t think that’s the reason that most of them are kneeling. I think most of them are kneeling because you know, they want to protest some brutality in the police forces. They need to make that very clear. And of course, now that that has been brought to national attention, I’m not sure if it needs to continue.”
