Protest fever is spreading!!! Thanks to el Trumpo, now the protest is morphing into some weird anti-Trump, pro-woke demonstration.
And the Pittsburgh Steelers are upping the ante!!!

BUT people are interpreting this as a YUGE protest, yet Tomlin says he’s doing that to STAY OUT OF THE CONTROVERSY. I like what he says – he doesn’t want to force his players to choose one way or the other. UNfortunately, it’ll be interpreted as they taking a huge stand against Trump.

What a total complete crapfest this is becoming. Is this what Trump promised during the campaign? Is this what “winning” looks like? Ugh.
