But didn’t the NFL start it by kneeling?
Watching Donald Trump half heartedly and incorrectly mouth the national anthem was sooooooo disrespectful to our flag and military. #CFBPlayoff

Are you positive he was wrong?
On his own, my son just stood up and stayed silent for the entire National Anthem 🇺🇸 before the @CFBPlayoff Nat’l Championship.
I’m speechless. I couldn’t be more proud right now.
