CNN’s Acosta: Why is Trump Going After Black Athletes? Trump NFL Comments A “Dog Whistle”

CNN’s Jim Acosta reports Monday from the White House:

JIM ACOSTA, CNN SENIOR WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Hi, Pam. That’s right. What we heard from Sarah Sanders this is not about race and you heard repeatedly during the briefing today, the White House trying to say no, that the president wants to honor the American flag and wants to see athletes do the same thing at sporting events. I wasn’t given a follow-up question like my other colleagues in the room, but why is it that the president was seeming to go after African-American athletes and he went after Colin Kaepernick in Alabama, Friday night, and went after Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, saying he was no longer invited to the White House for their championship celebration here when, at the same time — and I tried to follow up with this question. Tom Brady did not make it here to the White House and the New England Patriots made it. There were no angry tweets from the president directed at Tom Brady or other athletes. So I think it does raise this question, especially when you have the president early this morning tweeting about his respect for and his gratitude toward NASCAR fans and the way they honor the flag at their events.

I think, Pam, you know, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say it is a bit of a dog whistle that is being played out there. And as you saw here at the very telling of the briefing, Sarah Sanders wanted no part of the conversation and she insisted this is not about race and not a culture war and them she was headed for the exits.
