According Multiple Sources, Donald Trump Called Jerry Jones FOUR Times On Monday Before The Cowboys Knelt Prior To The Anthem
Alright guys, pass me the fork and knife, because this crow ain't going to eat itself. Sprinkle all those words I said about Jerry Jones sitting so hard on the fence that he's no longer in need of a colonoscopy on my foot, because it's prime for my mouth. Just goes to show, you should never read too much into one picture, 1,000 words seemingly attached or not.
Sure, the NFL owner who financially backed Trump looked straight into that camera more happy with himself than an internet troll that just anonymously baited a public figure into responding on social media, but that was probably just a product of the lighting. After all, nothing speaks to the validity of the Cowboys' "protest" quite like its target's role in helping to plan out the ridiculously compromising details. Some might say that having Trump weigh in with a series of incessant phone calls that would make a paranoid teenage girlfriend put her phone on silent completely undercut the purpose of the message. Those people clearly don't realize that a message can only be made more powerful by having the behind-the-scenes support of the most powerful person in the free world....even if the most powerful person in the free world is a known jackass whose divisive words were the sole cause of the entire fucking demonstration in the first place.
In all seriousness, I'm not going to pretend that I am shocked that Donald Trump is a coward, but the idea of him biting the nails on his baby hands as he anxiously bounces on the edge of his bed while trying to get through to fellow good old boy Jerry Jones is a welcomed surprise. The fact that it ultimately resulted in the neutering of what was an undeniable example of the First Amendment in action is not, but - hey - sometimes you have to acquiesce to your...::clears throat::...privileged superiors, am I right?! That's why I'll just take what I can get, and bask in the hilarity of Donald Trump - ironically enough - getting on his proverbial knee in begging for a favor from his political connect. Nothing like a guy igniting a forest fire then showing up two days later with one bucket of water looking to put it out. That's almost as disingenuous as Jerry Jones' show of "solidarity".
