Costas Slams Trump as 'Tone Deaf' on Race in NFL Protests

Veteran NBC sportscaster Bob Costas Monday slammed President Donald Trump as being "tone deaf" on the matter of race after the president said during a campaign rally in Alabama that football players who kneel in protest of police brutality should be fired.

To give Trump the "extreme benefit of the doubt," Costas told CNN's "New Day," one would say that the president is "insensitive to the racial implications to make comments like this at a rally in Alabama. All right? He likes cheap applause lines . . . do you want a president of the United States who is so tone deaf to the racial implications of this?"
