This Hero Took A Knee at Trump’s BS Patriotism Charade And The Internet Loves Him!

While President Donald Trump continues to make a huge fuss about NFL players protesting police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem at NFL games, the president held a bogus, hastily planned “Celebration of America” event Tuesday to show off Trump’s draft dodging, tax return hiding, (Russia colluding?) super-duper-uber-patriotism, from which the Superbowl champion Philadelphia Eagles were disinvited due to reports that as many as 10 players would not attend, in protest of Trump.

A reporter for TV2 in Denmark named Jesper Zølck caught a photo and video of a man who magnificently stuck it to Trump by taking a knee during the performance of the national anthem at Trump’s celebration.

The celebration event lasted roughly 10 minutes and featured Renditions of The Star-Spangled Banner and God Bless America by the United States Marine band in the US Army chorus notably president Trump didn’t seem to know the words to God Bless America.

Surprise! Santa is in the Resistance. Guess we know Trump will get a lump of coal in his stocking. Except, that climate crisis denying moron will probably just give it to Scott Pruitt.


A ‘Be This Guy’ For Today’s Resistance

A famous meme that has long circulated on the internet warning of the dangers of fascism features a lone man, August Landmesser, at a Nazi rally in Germany during World War Two, arms crossed, bravely defying the nazis all around him. Whoever this guy at the White House is, he’s the “Be This Guy” of our time, as the Resistance account Strictly Covfefe and Bill Madden were quick to point out – winning the last word on the subject from me.
