NFL players rip Trump on Twitter: 'A--hole,' 'disgrace,' 'real life clown,' 'unacceptable'

Donald Trump might have just lost the NFL vote. 

After Trump made comments on Friday where he called for NFL owners to cut any player who kneels during the national anthem, several NFL players took to Twitter to rip the president of the United States. 

One of the most pointed tweets came from Bills running back LeSean McCoy, who called Trump an "a--hole."

Bengals safety Geore Iloka wasn't as harsh, but he did call Trump a clown. 

Vikings running back Bishop Sankey called Trump's words a "disgrace."

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman also ripped the president, calling his behavior "unacceptable."

Many players in the NFL were upset to see Trump talking about sports at all. 

Most players get on ripped on Twitter whenever they talk about politics, so they wanted to know why this does't go both ways when a politician talks about sports.

For many NFL players, one thing they hope to see following Trump's comments is more activism. 

Buccaneers safety T.J. Ward said it will give more players a reason to kneel, while Saints receiver Michael Thomas emphasized that players need to keep using their platforms to stop social injustice. 

Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who was named the NFL's Man of the Year in 2014 for his work in the community, didn't rip Trump with words, but he did send out a tweet with a lot of sad emoji faces. 

Reggie Bush promised to keep supporting Colin Kaepernick, who started the movement to fight racial injustice when he sat for the national anthem before a preseason game in August 2016. 

The most interesting tweet might have come from Colin Kaepernick's mom. 

During his speech on Friday, Trump called players who protest, "sons of b----es," and let's just say that Mrs. Kaepernick seems to be wearing that insult with a badge of honor.
