There was no shortage of protests against Donald Trump’s comments over the weekend, most of them were incredibly serious and thought out. Which is fair. The POTUS did refer to any player who kneels during the national anthem as a ‘son of bitch’. Not the kind of terminology people generally hear from the White House.
Odell Beckham Jr. let his touchdown celebration to his talking for him and it wasn’t conventional.
Yes, that’s an NFL star celebrating like a dog urinating on the Lincoln Financial Field turf. He was flagged for the display and will in all likelihood be getting an expensive fine from the NFL this week.
Of course, Fox play-by-play man Joe Buck wasn’t impressed.

For his second touchdown of the game, he celebrated with a much more traditional form of protest, by raising a fist.
