Bellator MMA fighter and Trump supporter Chael Sonnen reax to the NFL national anthem protests:
I don’t like [the anthem]…first off, it’s the most annoying part about the sporting event. I didn’t come there for that. I came there to watch the game.
I don’t like it at sporting [events], and I don’t know why it’s been regulated to sporting events…in 20-some years, I’ve never heard that damn song unless it’s at a sporting event!
I find it to be a long song, quite frankly.
Chael’s shitty replacement for fmr. co-host Joel then noted that the anthem would be even longer if it included the “2 other verses”– in reference to the original pro-slavery lyrics that were gradually omitted over time:
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave.
In any event, I don’t care.
