PURE CLASS: Trump tweets video of Jamaica's Usain Bolt stopping interview to stand for American anthem

StaffRebel Columnist

Donald Trump scored some points in his ongoing feud with those who kneel during the national anthem yesterday by tweeting a video from the 2012 Olympics. In it, Jamaica's Usain Bolt stopped doing an interview to respect the Star Spangled Banner.

“Even Usain Bolt from Jamaica, one of the greatest runners and athletes of all time, showed RESPECT for our National Anthem!” he tweeted, including emojis of the US and Jamaican flags.

It was definitely a classy move by the athlete. What do you think? Should NFL players stand?

What exactly is the remedy that those who"take the knee" are demanding? I do not get their point.

Respect is a 2 way street, Bolt understands that.

NFL, NBA etc… take a lesson from Bolt!

Bolt is the most stand-up guy you will find anywhere.

Talented, honourable, and, yes, rich; but he knows he needs to give back.

NFL players the most entitled, spoiled brats you can imagine. They are perfect liberals.

These Guys are not standing up because it pays well to kneel when Clinton pulls the strings.

Good for that young man… It is active patriotism was a few years ago and if he was challenged today would he react the same way.. One could only hope that he would and common sense and loyalty and patriotism would win the day.!!

With all the money they make it’s hard to feel sorry for any of them.. even the ones that are queers and fags who are harassed and ridiculed by their teammates ( sodomy is a sickness and a mental illness as a man’s anus through which he passes shit is not sexual organ) But the ones who shit on their country while shitting on their flag while the national anthem is playing that is an act of pre-treason and should be dealt with accordingly… There are blacks and whites along with hispanics playing in the NFL and played together for years and the same goes with baseball and basketball. When you have so many overinflated ego’s squished into the same court or playing field or locker room you were going to have tensions of every kind so if you wish to abolish that you might as well abolish professional sports themselves but personally I would like to see the crybabies shunned and leave everything else status quo.!!
