Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins is frustrated because Donald Trump and his supporters will not listen to any of the reasons a player might take a knee, so he held an unusual press conference today.

Here is what some of his signs said:

"You aren't listening"

"More than 60% of people in prison are people of color"

"Any given night 500,000 sit in jail. Convicted? No. Too Poor? Yes #EndCashBail"

"Chris Long gave his entire year's salary to educational initiatives"

"Colin Kaepernick gave $1 million to charity"

"Devin McCourty Duron Harmon, Matt Slater and Johnson Bademosi lobbied to raise the age from 7 to 12 entering the criminal justice system"

"in 2018 439 people shot and killed by police (thus far)"

It's just too bad Trump and his supporters can't (or don't) read.
