President Donald Trump was not too thankful about a New York Giants player kneeling prior to a Thanksgiving Day game, and he made sure to tweet about it.

Prior to Thursday’s game between the Giants and Washington Redskins, New York defensive end Olivier Vernon was the lone Giants player to kneel during the national anthem. Vernon regularly has kneeled throughout the season, and said he plans on continuing throughout the rest of the campaign.

And certainly to no surprise at this point, it drew the ire of the president, leading him to yet again chastise the NFL on Twitter.

The response came following a tweet from White House director of social media Dan Scavino Jr. regarding Vernon and the NFL’s decline of ratings.

And as anthem protests don’t appear to be slowing down, neither does the president’s Twitter tirades on the matter.
