In response to Fox News host Laura Ingraham's contrasting views on which athletes should be allowed to discuss politics, Jets safety Jamal Adams weighed in on Wednesday, saying "How does she still have a job?"
Adams' comments came after Ingraham said New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees should be "allowed" to share his views regarding "kneeling and what the flag means."
"He's allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means," Ingraham said Tuesday night on Fox News. "Take him, he's a person. He has some worth, I would imagine. This is beyond football, though. This is totalitarian conduct. This is Stalinist. And by the way, on the streets of New Orleans -- we're looking at live pictures -- they're shouting 'F Drew Brees.' That's what this moment has done to the beautiful team spirit of the New Orleans Saints."
Brees, who said Tuesday that he couldn't support Colin Kaepernick and other players who kneel in protest during the national anthem, issued a lengthy apology on Wednesday morning after his comments were viewed by many as tone deaf.
In February of 2018, after LeBron James weighed in regarding off the court issues including politics and Preident Donald J. Trump, Ingraham bashed James and Kevin Durant.
"It's always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a years to bounce a ball," Ingraham said on the air on Fox News. "Oh, and LeBron and Kevin, you're great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself. Or as someone once said, 'shut up and dribble.'"
