Donald Trump continued his war with the NFL players by telling them that they would only be permitted to kneel in his presence.

Trump’s tweets over the weekend that stated that any players who conducted any kind of minor civil rights protest were “sons of bitches” and should be “fired” led to widespread condemnation and kneeling across the league.

Trump has offered an olive branch to the NFL today by informing the players that they could kneel and kiss the ground before their Commander-In-Chief, provided they didn’t look him in the eye.

“People say I hate NFL players, but I love some of those brain-damaged bastards,” explained the President.

“I like Tom Brady and some of the other right-wing white guys.

“But the only person who can disrespect our country is me.”
