I saw something on Twitter that I want to encourage all of you to join with me in doing: Tune in to the sports game of your choice today. (I'm going to join the A's Bruce Maxwell and encourage other MLB players to follow suit)

And during the opening ceremony where they play the anthem, take a knee. Get a picture of yourself taking said knee and tweet it to @realDonaldTrump. If you don't have a Twitter account, post it here and I'll do it on your behalf. Let him get a country full of people exercising their First Amendment right to take a knee.

Maybe it will distract him from another threat to kill 25 million people.

Sad that that's the most optimistic I can be about this idiot.
