More Dominoes Fall

This weekend has seen an unprecedented number of NFL players kneel, stand at inattention, or be absent for the national anthem, all in response to Pres. Trump’s Friday diss of players’ political protests.

Shahid Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, is the first minority man to own an NFL team.  He is also a past supporter of Trump.  However, at Saturday’s London game, he stood in solidarity with his protesting players.

Khan is one of seven NFL owners who have contributed $1 million or more to Trump.
