Trump right
 on flag issue

Your editorial that President Donald Trump is either a liar or an idiot in his criticism of NFL players completely misses the point.

President Trump is right when he says players failing to stand during the playing of the national anthem are being disrespectful. It is no different from burning the flag in protest. Both failing to stand and burning the flag in protest are legal. Both are disrespectful.

It is no different from people in a courtroom standing when the judge enters the courtroom whether or not they like the judge or agree with the judge’s rulings.

It is my opinion most Americans agree with President Trump that it is disrespectful to stand during the playing of the national anthem. I am baffled that your newspaper fails to acknowledge and agree that failing to stand during the playing of the national anthem is disrespectful. As an aside, for me, life without the NFL is better than life with the NFL.
