President Donald Trump made time to tweet this Thanksgiving weekend.
On Thursday, he promoted a video on Twitter from pro-Trump YouTube stars Diamond and Silk intended as a guide for “how to reply when someone mentions the president at Thanksgiving.” The Black comedians were found to have been paid by the Trump campaign, despite Trump publicly denying that they were last year, and they’ve continued as media surrogates.
In their Thanksgiving video, the duo constructs a bit around a catch-all answer to political discord at the holiday table: “He’s Yo President.”

On Friday, Trump blasted the NFL for allowing player protests during the national anthem, revisiting a long-simmering culture war among American fans.
“Can you believe that the disrespect for our Country, our Flag, our Anthem continues without penalty to the players. The Commissioner has lost control of the hemorrhaging league. Players are the boss!” he tweeted. New York Giant Olivier Vernon took a knee prior to Thursday night’s game.

The league maintains it has no such plans to penalize players for kneeling.
Trump is at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort on Friday and plans to play golf with Tiger Woods at the National Golf Club.
