This is so brazen, it’s actually fucking AMAZING.
Donald Trump was giving MSNBC an interview on live TV on Sunday afternoon when — in the middle of talking about how disappointed he was with the NFL for its players kneeling during the National Anthem — his stubby little middle finger popped up on screen.
Here are the specifics: Trump was responding to a question about New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft; a large portion of Kraft’s Patriots team chose to kneel down for the National Anthem at their game Sunday, and Kraft released a statement in support of the players.
Trump — who has been very friendly with Kraft, and Kraft’s quarterback Tom Brady, in the past — responded to a question about Kraft’s anti-Trump statement with a one-finger salute so subtle (and yet so obvious!!!) that it FUCKING BOGGLES THE MIND THAT THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
Watch it happen on video (below) right at about the 30-second mark of this video clip:
That’s so boldly, wildly absurd, it’s actually… kind of funny??
But seriously, after all the bull shit stunts, outright bigotry, and unbelievable ignorance this President has showed off that should legitimately cause outrage, this is just… hilarious.
We’re through the looking glass.
