A Republican Congressman who represents a part of New York that is flush with Jet fans ripped the NFL team’s owner over his pledge to pay the fines for any player who demonstrates during the national anthem.

“This season, all league and team personnel shall stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem. Personnel who choose not to stand for the anthem may stay in the locker room until after the anthem has been performed,” National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement outlining the new policy.

The article goes on to state the following:

New York Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson said in a statement that he will discuss the new anthem policy with coach Todd Bowles.

Johnson, who is acting as team owner while his brother Robert “Woody” Johnson IV serves as President Donald Trump’s ambassador to Great Britain, told Newsday that the organization will pay any related fine.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) tweeted in outrage, “Disgraceful that @nyjets owner will pay fines for players who kneel for National Anthem. Encouraging a movement premised on lies vs. police. Would he support all player protests? Would he pay fines of players giving Nazi salutes or spew racism? It’s time to say goodbye to Jets!”
