Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith lead his team to a 3-0 start Sunday with a 24-10 win over the Chargers, but was asked about President Donald Trumps comments and subsequent protests around the NFL today.
Smith noted he was disappointed in Trump and his tweets that took aim at fellow players who chose to sit or kneel during the anthem.
“You know me, I don’t always feel comfortable talking about a lot of this stuff,” Smith said. “We’re athletes, we’re playing football. But certainly I’d be lying if I said the comments didn’t upset me.
