Yesterday, after ____ falsely implied that players of the Philadelphia Eagles protested during the national anthem by taking a knee, Fox News aired a segment that furthered the lie.
It all began after _____ uninvited the team, who weren’t coming anyway, to the White House, and then Tweeted this:
“Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling.”
And that’s when the Lie Machina at Fox News went into overdrive, and when Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream aired a story showing the Eagles kneeling, except …
It was a pregame prayer, and not a protest of social injustice to Black Americans, as we learned in the nanosecond that it took Philadelphia tight end Zach Ertz to explain that to the “news” outlet:
“This can’t be serious ... Praying before games with my teammates, well before the anthem, is being used for your propaganda?! Just sad, I feel like you guys should have to be better than this...”
Sadly, they aren’t better than that.
In fact, it has been proven that no player on the Eagles took a knee during the national anthem during the entirte2017 regular season, post season or Super Bowl.
But, hey, what’s a lie when you’re trying to push a hate-filled nationalistic agenda by the Racist-in-Chief?
