New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan is taking President Donald Trump to task for the president's criticism of NFL players who kneel or otherwise don't participate in standing during the national anthem. 

Mr. Trump this morning tweeted "The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love......"

Quoting the tweet, the pro bowler asked if the president would have anything to say about the alt-right rally marking the one-year anniversary of the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent and resulted in a protester being struck and killed by a car.

The New Orleans Advocate reports all Saints players who were dressed out for last night's game in Jacksonville stood during the national anthem.
