Donald Trump led a revolt with patriotic Americans against the NFL’s national anthem protesters.
The left was furious.
And Nancy Pelosi was asked a question about the national anthem and what she said will leave you speechless.
Pelosi appeared at a CNN town hall event just one day after the NFL adopted a rule stating that all players on the field must stand for the anthem.
The league was forced to implement this change after fans abandoned the league in the wake of the anti-American protests.
NFL players put their hatred of America, the military, and the flag on display by kneeling or raising a black power fist in a racist gesture.
The left was not happy when the NFL announced the new rule and liberal journalists and anti-American NFL players pitched a fit.
Nancy Pelosi was asked about the anthem controversy and refused to take a position out of fear of alienating the anti-national anthem segment of the Democrat party voter base.
“I love the National Anthem … and I love the First Amendment and I’ll just leave it that.”

Even liberal journalists mocked Pelosi’s answer.
Might as well have just said “Trump won” https://t.co/sQmJ8r4NY8

Trump and his supporters would be thrilled to make the midterm elections a referendum on the national anthem.
The NFL tried to stand with their America-hating players during the 2017 season and lost big league in a confrontation with Trump and his supporters.
If Democrats decide to put supporting anthem protests front and center, it will only gin up enthusiasm from Trump supporters to turn out and vote when they see that the symbols of America are under assault.
That Nancy Pelosi can’t even unequivocally say you should stand for the national anthem shows what a perilous position Democrats are in.
