President Trump took a break from his appalling feud with the Mayor of San Juan to demand that the players of the National Football League stand for the national anthem during tomorrow’s slate of fifteen football games.
Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem. Respect our Flag and our Country!

It’s unlikely that his demands are going to be met; every Trump tweet prompts more and more players to take a knee in protest of the institutionalized racism and police brutality that Trump himself cultivates in our nation.
It is horrifying to watch the president of the United States stumble from feud to feud, incapable of focusing on anything for more than a few minutes as he lashes out like a cornered animal at anything and everything that appears to be a threat or a challenge, no matter how trivial.
People in Puerto Rico are dying of thirst and starvation while the brain worms that animate the President of the United States play golf and fiddle on Twitter without any regard for his duties to citizens he’s been entrusted with governing.
Trump is what happens to the human brain when all of it decays except the part that makes you reflexively flinch when something comes at you

It’s only been nine months. We must run this man from the White House as quickly as we can.
