Former NFL running back Reggie Bush told a politician to shut up. Bush — who is a Democrat and supported Barack Obama — told Buzz Patterson to shut up on Twitter.
Patterson responded to President Donald Trump’s tweet that began the thread. Trump said, “Looking forward to live sports, but any time I witness a player kneeling during the national anthem, a sign of great disrespect for our country and our flag, the game is over for me!”
The Republican Congress candidate for the California 7th district replied, “we are not going to allow these players to disrespect our country, our flag, and our American culture with this foolishness. I’m cutting the cord.” Bush — who has not played in the NFL since the 2016 season — said ‘shut up.’
Patterson then responded to Bush, “Weren’t you responsible for accepting improper benefits while at USC which resulted in them vacating two seasons and you losing the Heisman Trophy? It’s dudes like you who tarnish the game, not me. I’m a fan, but all I owe you is my money. Nothing more. At this point, nothing more.”
Patterson is attempting to win the 7th district by a Republican. This Congressional spot has been owned primarily by Democrats since 1959.
Dan Lungren, a Republican, District 3 incumbent, was defeated by Ami Bera. in the 2012 General Election. Bera previously lost to Lungren by 7% in 2010. However, the district redrawn, which made the area more competitive than previous years.
Before Lungren, the last Republican to hold the seat was John J. Allen Jr., who held the seat from January 3, 1947 through January 3, 1959.
Bera has owned the seat since Jan. 3, 2013.
Trump does not like it when these athletes kneel during the national anthem. He took to social media to tweet out his message after several San Francisco Giants and manager Gabe Kapler knelt before their exhibition game with the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.
While a lot of people may not agree with him for whatever reason, he’s entitled to his own opinion. If he doesn’t like it when players kneel, that’s his right.
Kapler was the first manager to kneel before a game. No manager has yet to kneel during a regular season or playoff game.
The Democrats say that their idea to kneel during the flag has nothing to do with the flag. They claim that they’re doing it for racial injustice.
