NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a press conference where he said he’d “like” for the players to stand for the anthem but can keep kneeling if they’d like.
After hearing this, Mike Huckabee went on Fox News and RIPPED the “pathetic” Commissioner for bowing to the players instead of listening to the millions of Americans who pay their salaries. Watch Huckabee’s response to Goodell’s “worthless” statement below.
Huckabee said the NFL Commissioner “acted like a parent who says to his child you really ought to eat your vegetables, but I’m not going to make you. And, if you’d rather eat ice cream, go ahead because there’s no consequences.” Huckabee exposed Goodell for the weak, power-less leader he truly is.
Then Huckabee said if they REALLY want to take a stand, the players can protest against their fellow players who are constantly beating their wives. “Maybe [players] can go out and protest domestic violence,” Huckabee said. But he wasn’t done there. WATCH the video below then SHARE on Facebook so it goes viral!
From Fox News Insider:
Mike Huckabee said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sounded like a nagging parent rather than the chairman of a sports league.
Goodell said he wants players to stand for the national anthem, but will not force them to do so.
He called Goodell’s statement “worthless” and added that it showed the NFL “has no rules” on the matter.
