The Best Answer Yet to Trump’s “S.O.B Athletes” Slur

Dale Hansen is a Dallas sportscaster, which makes him an unlikely champion of protest rights, but he does have a history of being on the right side. His recent commentary is an exquisite combination of disdain (noting that his foot hurt too while he served in the military, a reference to Donald Trump’s Vietnam deferments for a bone spur) and solemnity.

It’s an ill wind that blows no good, and Hansen’s response to Trump, along with many others, might show that if nothing else, Trump is affording us an opportunity to display our better selves as we oppose him.
