You may know that several NFL players have protested against police shootings and injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.
I won't get into why that's obviously not why players are protesting, because chances are that if you're of that opinion, you have inverse logic arguments locked-and-loaded and are looking for a cyber-fight.
"Really? That's the loudest booing you've ever heard?" It was a controversial protest, Colbert acknowledged, explaining the singing of the national anthem at NFL games is a sacred time when Americans rush to the toilet because that's when the line is shortest. "If they wanted to disrespect the country, they wouldn't kneel silently".
The comments made by President Donald Trump might have meant to turn professional athletes exercising their Constitutional rights into enemies of the state, but it appears to have had the opposite effect.
"These players aren't trying to disrespect the country". "They would do insane things like insult Gold Star families, or make fun of P.O.W.s like John McCain, or say America is morally equivalent to Putin's Russian Federation".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say get that son of a bitch off the field right now".
"Wow, son-of-a-bitch!" Colbert replied. "So President Trump decided what our nation needed most this past weekend was one more thing for us to deal with".
On NBC'sLate Night, both host Seth Meyers and writer Amber Ruffin took on Trump's comments.
Meyers then showed a clip of Trump's comments from Friday, introduced by a CNN anchor who warned viewers about Trump's language.
Meyers continued: "By now, it should be clear to everyone who Donald Trump is and what he represents is".
And Meyers argued that Trump's tweets were also created to distract people from other issues, like the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the effort to push through the Graham-Cassidy health care bill.
Twenty-eight N.F.L. teams released statements supporting the players, Colbert said, and on Sunday the protest inflated from fewer than 10 players to more than 250.
