Hammer: Players Taking Knees Has Become An Anti-Trump Protest

When Colin Kaepernick first took a knee last NFL season, he said he was trying to start a conversation about racial injustice in society. After the President made comments about players taking knees, it seems like the conversation has changed. Several hundred NFL players took a knee during the national anthem on Sunday. Hammer argues that no longer is this a protest to acknowledge racial injustice, it’s now become an anti-Trump protest. 

"How many of these guys are just taking a knee to get back at Trump? You keep talking about wanting to start a conversation. You look at Colin Kaepernick, and he's proabaly saying, 'you guys are missing the mark a little bit'. I'm trying to figure out the player's perspective."- Hammer
