Trump ‘evangelical’ adviser: NFL players should be glad they’re not “shot in the head for taking a knee”

Sharing is caring!

One of Trump's official evangelical advisers said NFL players should be thankful they aren't shot in the head for protesting racial inequality and that they should comply with Trump's demands of silence.

Pastor Robert Jeffress, the megachurch pastor who is one of Donald Trump’s official evangelical advisers, has attacked NFL players who protested racism and defied Trump.

Appearing on Fox News, Jeffress — who spoke at Trump’s poorly attended inauguration — said players who directly rebuked Trump after he demanded that the NFL penalize them should “be thanking God” because they don’t have to worry about “being shot in the head for taking a knee like they would be if they were in North Korea.”

The comment, and its amplification on the pro-Trump conservative Fox News, comes as Americans continue to stand up against Trump’s authoritarian, dictatorial demands that that black athletes who dissent should not be allowed to make their voices heard.
