Jimmy Kimmel's clever solution for fans upset over NFL players kneeling during anthem

Yahoo Entertainment

On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, host Jimmy Kimmel came up with a solution for NFL fans who are upset over players kneeling during the national anthem.

Just this last weekend, two Miami Dolphins players were the latest to use the peaceful protest as a way to draw attention to police brutality and discrimination against African Americans.

And while many people support NFL players rights to peaceful protest, some, like President Trump, do not. In fact in Trump once tweeted, "Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!"

Kimmel claimed to have a solution that "is going to work great for everybody." He showed that by attaching cardboard legs to the television, one can create the illusion in which kneeling players are now standing.

After demonstrating his idea, Kimmel said, "Voila! We made America great again."
