President Trump opposes all forms of kneeling as a way to express support for victims of police brutality, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Monday. Not just on the football field.
McEnany spoke at the regular White House press briefing:
The president is very much against kneeling in general. The president has made clear for years, that kneeling is tied to our National Anthem, that it does not respect our military men and women across this country. He’s not a fan of the kneeling movement . . . particularly because he thinks it’s disrespectful to our military, as the kneeling originated at the kneeling during the National Anthem.
Just last week, several Democratic senators, including former vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine of Virginia, dropped to one or both knees in an unbearable display of self-debasement.
And today, top Democrats hit the floor of the Capitol en masse.
