President Donald Trump on Sunday attempted to lob and insult at Fox News by declaring that football players protesting systemic racism are “better” than the network.
“@FoxNews daytime is not watchable,” Trump complained. “In a class with CNN & MSDNC. Check out @OANN, @newsmax and others that are picking up the slack.”
“Even a boring football game, kneeling and all, is better!” he added.

Throughout his presidency, Trump has attacked football players — like Colin Kaepernick — who have kneeled during the national anthem to protest systemic racism in the United States.
Trump’s remarks came after Fox News host Chris Wallace called out the president for a “massive failure” in his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
