Judge Jeanine Pirro tore into wimpy NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for standing behind spoiled football players who disrespect the national anthem.
“Shame on you. Shame on all of you!” Pirro said on her Fox News show. “And shame on you Roger Goodell for not showing that you love this country as much as the president does when you had the chance.”
Judge Jeanine was reacting to Goodell’s statements after President Trump suggested NFL team owners fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners — when somebody disrespects our flag — to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now! He’s fired,’ ” Trump said at a political rally. “Some owner is going to do that.”
In response, Goodell blasted the president’s comments as “divisive.” In reality, the only thing that has actually sown division in the NFL is players’ refusal to stand for the anthem. Fans are increasingly outraged by the anti-American gesture and have started boycotting the NFL as a result.

The president doubled down on his comments Sunday morning.
Judge Jeanine said Goodell and other liberals who cave in to childish temper tantrums by today’s radical left are part of the problem.
“The biggest issue facing our country today is the tip-toeing and political correctness that has brought us to the brink of disaster in national security, politics and sports,” Pirro said. “The question: Do we have the fortitude, courage and determination to stand up to those who threaten our values?”
Pirro said these spoiled athletes who claim they care about fixing “social injustices” should put their money where they mouths are by donating their time and cash instead of hijacking sports to virtue-signal.
Adding to the hypocrisy is that in 2016, the NFL threatened to fine black players for wearing special cleats to memorialize the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 people. But sitting on your ass during the national anthem is fine.
Unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a supporter of the anti-police Black Lives Matter movement, started the trend of sitting out the Star-Spangled Banner in 2016.
Kaepernick — a black-rights activist who was raised by his two adoptive white parents — claimed he dissed the national anthem to protest police violence against black men. The left has since celebrated Kaepernick for his “political activism.”
Meanwhile, Colin did not even do the simplest, most basic act of political activism, which is to VOTE. He did not vote in the 2016 presidential election. Let that sink in.
Every weekend, there are countless shootings/murders in Chicago, the hometown of Barack Obama. Almost all are black-on-black crimes. Why is Kaepernick not protesting these senseless murders?
Moreover, the NFL has a massive problem with its stars beating and raping women. Who’s taking a knee to speak out for these female victims?
