On Wednesday, during his radio broadcast, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh shocked the nation in voicing concerns over President Trump’s comments on NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.
Limbaugh’s comments come after the latest Tweet of Trump’s crusade to stir up unnecessary controversy over professional athletes who are protesting the national anthem to bring attention to the racial injustice and police violence on minorities that has become a pattern across the nation.
It is about time that Roger Goodell of the NFL is finally demanding that all players STAND for our great National Anthem-RESPECT OUR COUNTRY

Limbaugh stated, “”There’s a part of this story that’s starting to make me nervous, and it’s this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody.”
“I don’t think that it is useful or helpful for any employee anywhere to be forced to do something because the government says they must,” Limbaugh continued. “We don’t want the president being able to demand anybody that he’s unhappy with behave in a way he requires”.
Twitter is in disbelief:
Is hell freezing over?

With Twitter users find themselves awkwardly and uneasily aligned with Limbaugh it is proff that most everyone appears to be willing to at least agree that Trump should stop sticking his nose into these types of controversies and, rather, focus his attention on real issues:
Woah. How do I agree with Rush L on something?

Lordy, help us. Limbaugh, the man responsible for spreading a lot of the twisted thinking on right, disagrees w/Trump. That's how bad it is
