President Donald Trump said at his rally in Alabama on Friday that he wishes NFL owners would fire any player who disrespects the U.S. flag and national anthem by declaring they should “get that son of a bitch off the field.”

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired!’” Trump exclaimed.

Trump’s comments reverberated throughout social media where many on the political left used the opportunity to skew what he said while others were left simply stunned that he said “son of a bitch.”

White House correspondent Jared Rizzi said the president’s remarks were referring to players who disrespect the U.S. flag, not players seeking racial justice.

Washington Post White House reporter and CNN political analyst Abby Phillip stated that Trump referenced Colin Kaepernick when he did not. Numerous NFL players have kneeled during the national anthem besides the now unemployed NFL quarterback.

ESPN’s Jemele Hill, who has been widely criticized for her assertions that President Trump is a white supremacist, couldn’t resist commenting on what the president said.

ESPN executive producer of the Dan Le Batard Show, Mike Ryan, said in his tweet. President Trump has condemned Nazis and has publicly disavowed David Duke and the KKK numerous times.

Several Twitter users went full on “hate mode” with their tweets.
