Rick Zamperin: It's President Donald Trump who should be fired

President Donald Trump

Pete Souza, Barack Obama's White House photographer posted a photo of the then president with Curry on Saturday morning.

Opponents of Trump accused him of failing to respect the First Amendment rights of Americans.

Trump has enjoyed strong support from National Football League owners, with at least seven of them donating $1 million each to Trump's inaugural committee. New York Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said the comments were inappropriate and offensive.

Trump also said National Football League ratings are down "massively" (that's not true - the ratings are only down modestly) and criticized the NFL's efforts to make the game safer for athletes.

Richard Sherman, the outspoken Seattle Seahawks cornerback, said: "The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed".

Trump also criticized how the game is being played these days, mocking referees who throw penalty flags for tackles and hits that are deemed against the rules.

Everton moved out of the drop zone with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth , thanks to a pair of late goals from substitute Oumar Niasse. Javier Hernandez and Cheikhou Kouyate pulled two goals back in the closing stages, but Spurs managed to hold on for the win.

DeMaurice Smith, president of the NFL Players" Association, also responded to the president's comments, saying "The line that marks the balance between the rights of every citizen in our great country gets crossed when someone is told to just "shut up and play'". "No worker nor any athlete, professional or not, should be forced to become less than human when it comes to protecting their basic health and safety".

Speaking in an interview with Fox News Sunday, Short was asked whether or not Trump was once again on shaky ground over race, following the backlash against his comments over the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in which the president appeared to blame "both sides" for what happened.

North Carolina, the reigning NCAA men's basketball champion, said Saturday it will not visit the White House this season.

"I have an idea of why, but, it's just kind of beneath, I think, a leader of a country to go that route". "Little boys and little girls want to be like the president". That's what they want to do.

The Warriors then issued a team statement, confirming NONE of the players would visit the White House: "While we meant to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited".

"We know we're not thinking about being better than past year at all", Durant said. "We will continue to support them in their peaceful pursuit of positive change in our country and around the world". "Happy the game is over".
