President Donald Trump shot out a trio of testy tweets on Saturday afternoon, attacking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over his support of players who protest the U.S. national anthem and also condemning Senate Democrats and Sen. John McCain for their rejection of the Graham-Cassidy Bill -- the latest GOP attempt to strike down the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
He reacted to reports that Iran has test-fired a new missile by accusing them of being in league with North Korea.
Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel.They are also working with North Korea.Not much of an agreement we have!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1506203944.0
He then attacked Democrats and John McCain with a phony talking point.
Democrats are laughingly saying that McCain had a "moment of courage." Tell that to the people of Arizona who were deceived. 116% increase!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1506205247.0
And finally he tried to tell Goodell how to do his job.
Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1506205517.0
Goodell shocked some observers by taking the side of the players in Trump's broadside on Friday night against NFL team members who take a knee rather than stand in support of the national anthem.
