Lou Holtz has never been one to hold back his opinion on pretty much anything. This is dead on!
Holtz has been on the Trump Train since the beginning: “Trump is on the right track”
Holtz makes a great point about Trump’s appointment of military men to his cabinet. Very true!
Back in September, Holtz said trump has a right to speak out about NFL protests:
“This isn’t about race. It’s all about a philosophy.”
President Donald Trump has the right to speak out against NFL players protesting during the national anthem just as the players have their First Amendment right to express their views, legendary college football coach Lou Holtz said.
Holtz appeared on Tuesday’s “Fox and Friends” and addressed the controversy that saw more than 200 NFL players take a knee during the anthem over the weekend.
Trump called out the handful of players who had been kneeling during a speech last Friday, which promoted the mass protests before Sunday’s games.
“Two hundred NFL players making millions of dollars take a knee, disrespect the flag, and the president, the leader of this country, doesn’t have the right to say I think that’s wrong? This is a workplace environment and he has a right to fire people,” Holtz said. “He has a right to speak out his mind. This isn’t about race. It’s all about a philosophy.” Read more: Newsmax
