VIDEO: Rex Ryan Is ‘Pissed Off’ at Trump for NFL Comments

Rex Ryan, the former coach of the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets football teams, declared that he’s “pissed off” at President Donald Trump for Trump’s comments about NFL players who “take a knee” during the National Anthem.

Ryan is a commentator ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown. He used that platform to criticize the president; the comments drew attention because Ryan has previously been a Trump supporter. You can watch the video of what Ryan said on ESPN here:

Rex Ryan said:

Let me tell you, I’m pissed off, I’ll be honest with you. I supported Donald Trump. I sat back when he asked me to introduce him at a rally in Buffalo, I did that. But I’m reading these comments, and it’s appalling to me. And I’m sure it’s appalling to almost any citizen in our country. It should be. Calling our players SOBs and all that stuff. That’s not the men that I know. Men that I know in the locker room, I’m proud to be associated with those people. I apologize for being pissed off, but guess what, that’s it. Because right away, I’m associated with what Donald Trump stands for and all that because I introduced him. I never signed up for that. I never wanted that. That doesn’t mean I support 100-percent of the things he says, and clearly this is a case.

Trump started the war of words with the NFL on Friday, calling players who don’t stand for the National Anthem a “son of a b-tch.” He doubled down on Twitter over the weekend. On Sunday, Trump again called for NFL owners to fire or suspend players who don’t stand for the Anthem. However, multiple owners have since defended their players’ right to protest.

Specifically, Trump said on Friday, according to New York Upstate, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s FIRED!’ You know, some owner is gonna do that. He’s gonna say, ‘That guy disrespects our flag; he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it. They don’t know it. They’re friends of mine, many of them. They don’t know it. They’ll be the most popular person, for a week. They’ll be the most popular person in this country.”

Ryan, while Buffalo Bills coach, had introduced Trump at a rally in 2016 in Buffalo, New York. At that time he said, according to New York Upstate, “There’s so many things I admire about Mr. Trump, but one thing I really admire about him is, you know what, he’ll say what’s on his mind. But so many times, you’ll see people, a lot of people want to say the same thing. But there’s a big difference. They don’t have the courage to say it. They all think it, but they don’t have the courage to say it.”

You want to take a knee don’t take the field …
After the national anthem is over you can come on the field ,until then do not disturb one of the things that I paying for when !!
I go to a football game or a baseball game is to stand up and honor America Honor the flag ,honor the freedom it gives to those who live inside this great country. One of the events at a football game or a baseball game is not to see some Childish bastard take a knee on my dime … apparently these low-life individuals think I have to put up with their crap and spend my hard-earned money to watch their childishness !!
Wrong !!!!!
As of right now you can get your money that I will no longer contribute to ,from the scumbags that feel that I’m paying to watch them disrespect the flag and America …
So they can have a personal agenda on the field !!! In fact I should take legal action against the leagues for fraud you’re claiming I am getting a certain type of entertainment and I am not once again I am not paying for some scumbag protester and his personal agenda and maybe all of the season ticket holders should file a class action lawsuit against you for fraud !!!
So keep up your shit and it just might happen !!
