Talk about tone-deaf…between the FakeNews media and the NFL, the President’s been cast in the role of Mr. America, and take-a-knee players are the Anti-America.
Rush summed it up today…the media’s no longer allowed to own the narrative.
Yep. There’s a new Narrative-in-Chief in town…and his name’s Donald Trump.
Revealing yet another aspect to the ‘Art of the Deal‘, he sent out a few Tweets setting down a marker with the NFL et al and declaring very publicly that when it comes to our National Anthem, he owns the Narrative: you will respect America and its flag.
And, as Rush Limbaugh explained, the stage on which the players chose to make their stand is not theirs – the field is their workplace, but the owners OWN the stage. And as we all know, when at work, alienating the boss’s customers should result in a pink slip.
We’re not sure what’s more surreal, the President’s marketing genius…or FakeNews media, the NFL owners’, and the NFL players’ absolute marketing stupidity?
(Regardless, they’re gonna need a different playbook.)
