    Trump sits, talks through song lowering the flag at military base amid NFL anthem controversy

    President Trump sat and talked through the nightly playing of "Retreat" as the American flag was lowered on a Pennsylvania Air National Guard base during his interview with Sean Hannity.
    Trump, who has been criticizing NFL players who kneel through the national anthem to protest racism, seemed caught off-guard by loudspeakers playing "Retreat." The song is played every night at military bases to signal the American flag being lowered and the end of the official duty day.

    Military site Task and Purpose was the first to notice Trump sitting during the song. According to Task and Purpose, uniformed service members are required to stop what they're doing and salute the flag as its lowered during the song while civilians are required to place their hand over their heart.


    Trump not only does not stand or place his hand over his heart, but instead talks through the song and assumes it's being played to honor him or Hannity.
    People watching the rally can be seen standing for the song in the background of Trump's interview but Trump seems to not know what the song means.
    "Are they playing that for you or for me?" Trump joked to Hannity.

    (Reuters) - The NFL said on Friday it has no plans to mandate players stand for the U.S. national anthem, but will rather present a possible solution on how to end the controversial protests when it meets with team owners next week.

    Commissioner Roger Goodell, along with the head of the NFL Players Association, will meet with the owners from Oct. 17-18 in New York where the issue of player protests during the U.S. national anthem is expected to command much attention.

    (Goodell) has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and make progress on issues of social justice and equality in this country, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call.

    Thanks for the old news 'update'.
    Question for the pro-transgender, gender fluid, anyone can be whatever they want to be, people out there: Should a male be granted a combat license to enter a MMA fight to pummel females because he 'identifies' as a woman?

    Yes, many kinds.
    So what do you believe? If more crimes are committed by black people it is no fault of the police that the offender happens to be black.
    More black people arrested does not mean more black people commit crimes. Not all people who commit crimes are arrested, not all people who are arrested commit crimes. Remember that in Illinois the advent of DNA evidence proved that half the Death Row were innocent. Not "not guilty", absolutely innocent. On Death Row! With a million appeals and all the public/institutional attention you could ask for, it was (at best!) a 50/50 shot. Now imagine how inapt 'I caught this guy grabbing someone's purse' would be, how easily conscious and unconscious racism (or any other -ism) could bleed into proceedings with so little oversight.

    Okay, let's see your database.

Shit, maybe I ought to start looting things and whatnot. I guess the cops will just ignore me because I'm white?
    The link I linked shows that black people are disproportionately killed regardless of household income level. Happy to help.
    Hasta pronto, porque la vida no termina aqui...
    America, stop pushing. I know what I'm doing.
