U.S of Ed: Trump fails to get a touchdown on Kaepernick and Obamacare
“What the guys are saying is, we really love the United States and this is one way of showing it. There are problems of race and we’re trying to bring them to your attention with what we have, and that’s our name and our ability.”
Trump’s attacks on former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and other protesting NFL players, a far-cry from the kind of hedged language used against Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, seem to have backfired with more sport stars taking up the challenge. Off the field, Republicans’ “last-ditch” efforts on repealing Obamacare have also failed and tax reform could leave an even bigger hole in the deficit. And was Senator Luther Strange’s loss in Alabama a victory in disguise for Trump?
