During Monday Night Football, Jerry Jones and the entire Dallas Cowboys team knelt BEFORE the national anthem played as a show of unity with his players.
The clip of Jerry Jones kneeling with his team went viral before the Cowboys took on the Cardinals, and it seems as if that’s exactly what the owner wanted to happen. The Cowboys owner was seen chasing down a cameraman to make sure he was captured on camera kneeling with his players for the television audience.
This only adds humor of Jerry making everything about himself, the kneeling before the anthem was Jones idea as he was publicly spoken out that his players (employees) not protest during the national anthem.
Making things even more awkward, Trump wrote on Twitter today saying that he talked to Jones and that he will get everyone standing for the national anthem.
Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. Jerry is a winner who knows how to get things done. Players will stand for Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 27, 2017
What’s more American, than the rich trying to hijack a cause and making it all about themselves. Business always comes first.
