The people have spoken in 140 characters or less in favor of fighting against negativity, injustice, Donald Drumpf and police brutality.

#TakeAKnee is currently trending on Twitter, as millions of people are angered over the rhetoric and behavior shown by the current POTUS, Donald J. Drumpf.

If you’ve been boycotting the news then you might’ve missed the 45th Cheeto-in-Chief blasting Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players for protesting against police violence with strong language. “[I’d] 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!’”

Many took that as a direct shot to Colin Kaepernick, who is still un-hired while he donates thousands of dollars to support the fight against police brutality and injustices in this country. Add to the mix that Drumpf thought he was big sheet after “rescinding” an invite to Stephen Curry — and there is no shortage of people who feel that Drumpf is going for a record of being the most offensive politician in our nation’s history.
