For the past few weeks, President Trump has been firing off tweets pressuring NFL athletes to stand during the national anthem—and for the NFL to makethem do so—with his most recent post Wednesday claiming (falsely) that Commissioner Roger Goodell was "finally demanding" all players stand. T
here's one surprising person who's unsettled by Trump's remarks: conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh. "There's a part of this story that's starting to make me nervous, and it's this: I am very uncomfortable with the president of the United States being able to dictate the behavior and power of anybody," Limbaugh said Wednesday on his talk show.
"That's not where this should be coming from." Limbaugh also said he understood the reason for Trump's tweetstorms, and that the president had "pure" intentions and was "in the right" on the subject of standing during the national anthem.
