The San Francisco Giants took on the Oakland Athletics on Monday night in one of the last tune up games before the MLB's reduced 60 game season gets underway later his week. The Giants won the game 6-2, but nobody was talking about the score afterwards.
Not even President Trump. He, like the media, was focused on what happened prior to the first pitch. What happened prior to the first pitch was several Giants players and head coach Gabe Kapler took a knee during the National Anthem.

As you might expect, the kneeling during the anthem didn't sit well with Trump. So he did what any President would do, he tweeted about it.
Looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the National Anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our Country and our Flag, the game is over for me!

Live sports are probably not going to be Trump's thing this year. There's going to be kneeling all over the place. Maybe that's a good thing, he can focus on more pressing matters than sporting events. You know like tweeting on the toilet.
