Donald Trump is no master of subtlety … ’cause it DEFINITELY looks like he just gave New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft the finger on national television.
President Trump: Kneeling during national anthem is “very disrespectful to our flag and to our country” https://t.co/1JP68WuPUM

A reporter asked Trump Sunday what he made of his friend, Kraft, releasing a statement that was — in no shortage of words — clearly anti-Trump, at least in this case. Trump said he thinks Kraft’s ideas are disrespectful to the country … then wiped his brow with his middle finger.
Kraft released a statement Sunday saying he was “deeply disappointed” by the tone of Trump’s comments earlier this week — ya know, how owners should fire the “sons of bitches” who kneel in protest, and that fans should boycott the NFL if players keep doing it.
Trump also said he hadn’t been tuning in to the actual games Sunday … even though he was tweeting about NFL-National Anthem related matters all day.
