Democrats and the NFL go hand-in-hand. Neither group values America the way they should, despite being afforded everything they have thanks to the land of oppotunity.
Now, a Miami Dolphins player (who has knelt for the national anthem the past two season) is set to work in the office of anti-Trump Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX).
One player who has his eye on a future in politics is Miami Dolphins safety Michael Thomas who was one of the team’s three players who hit their knee to disrespect the national anthem on a weekly basis.
The team has proudly announced that Thomas would be spending several weeks working in the office of Congressional Black Caucus firebrand Sheila Jackson Lee who is a constant source of reprehensible, racist, anti-Trump propaganda.
For the next three weeks, @Michael31Thomas will be participating in an externship with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who serves the 18th District of Texas.

The Hill has more:
“I’m excited for this externship because it gives me the chance to connect with Congress in our ongoing efforts to create real change in our communities,” Thomas said in a statement released by the Dolphins.
“It’s not every day that you get hands-on experience at this level of politics. I am going to take this opportunity to learn as much as I can while representing those who may feel voiceless in our communities,” the 27-year-old Stanford University alumnus said.
The program matches players with professional experiences that they might be interested in as part of a post-NFL career.
Thomas has taken a knee during the anthem for the past two football seasons, according to The Sun Sentinel.
Jackson-Lee and Thomas deserve each other.
Together they can work on Making America Mexico Again.
