Former NBA player Charles Barkley released a statement blaming President Trump for so many recent NFL protests.
“Before Donald Trump opened his big old mouth there were only about 15, 20 guys kneeling and then he called those guys SOBs, which was inappropriate and 100 percent wrong,” Barkley said in a news conferenceTuesday with other former NBA stars, according to Newsday.
Former Congressman Joe Walsh tweeted his agreement, saying “Truth: It’s not about racial oppression.”
