Trumpeons want it to be

what they want it to be, because without that, they have nothing.

Shepard Smith said it well.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith commented on President Donald Trump digging himself further into a crusade against acts of protest in the NFL on Monday.

Smith said Trump is trying to reshape the demonstration some athletes have participated in kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racism as disrespect for the US, its troops, and its flag.

"It's very clear that for his base, this is the red meat of all red meat, because they're able to reframe this," Smith said. "They're able to say, 'oh, they're attacking the national anthem. They're attacking the troops, they're attacking the flag' none of which they're doing. They're not doing any of that," he said.

"They're upset about racial injustice in the country, and they're upset about the things the president has said, and yet he's able to turn it around for his base."

Smith continued: "Isn't this all a play to his base and could it all possibly be so that they don't notice there is no healthcare and North Korea is the biggest mess since the Cold War?"
