Two weeks ago, National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell said, as the Associated Press paraphrased it, that he "disagrees with Colin Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the national anthem, but recognizes the quarterback’s right to protest." Sunday night, Goodell seemed to go all-in with the players, telling AP (again, accurately paraphrased) that he "is encouraged by the direction players are taking with demonstrations related to the national anthem."

However, one of his most recent efforts was serving as a guest on Colin Cowherd's ESPN Radio show, when the host threw Obama softball questions about the last drive, which contains "supportive celebrity tweets and videos ... and a tongue-in-cheek tool kit that teaches parents how to get on social media and 'nag' their children 'mercilessly.'"
