Trump calls out Kim Jong Un, Kaepernick, McCain at Alabama rally

Strange days indeed.

President Trump delivered a rambling and meandering speech on Friday, pontificating for nearly 90 minutes on a plethora of topics and dropping an obscenity in the process.

Trump, stumping for GOP Senate candidate Luther Strange in Huntsville, Ala., used some salty language as he expressed his belief that NFL players should be cut for protesting the national anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, get that son of a b---h off the field right now. He is fired,” Trump said. “Total disrespect of our heritage, a total disrespect of everything that we stand for.”

Trump also knocked the league for putting rules in place to prevent players from suffering possibly traumatic brain injuries.

“They want to hit. But it is hurting the game,” he said.

During his hour-and-a-half diatribe, Trump also kept up his heated rhetoric regarding North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, using the name “little rocket man” for the rogue nation’s leader Kim Jong Un.

“We can’t have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place,” he said.

A day earlier, Pyongyang threatened to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific in response to Trump continued barbs and economic sanctions.

The President praised Strange throughout his speech, but also said that should former Alabama chief justice Roy Moore beat out his pick in the Republican runoff he’d be in his corner.

“By the way, both are good men, both good men,” he said. “Luther is going to win easily and Roy is going to have a hard time winning. But I will be backing him if he wins.”

Trump has been at odds with some of his closest aides, advisors and even his cabinet members in his support of Strange.

The Sept. 26 runoff comes after Strange was appointed in February to temporarily fill the seat that opened up when Jeff Sessions became attorney general.

An energized Trump touched on dozens of topics, from health care, trade and the media as he delivered a rambling speech before a supportive crowd.

He vowed his long-promised border wall is in the works, patted himself on the back for his election win and said he was stunned by Sen. John McCain’s latest opposition to Republican’s latest attempt to replace Obamacare.

Trump called McCain’s opposition "totally unexpected” and “terrible.”
