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

This weekend, two Miami Dolphins players became 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 the players’ right to protest, some, like President Trump, do not. Trump once tweeted, “Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!”

Claiming to have a solution that’s “going to work great for everybody,” Kimmel showed that by attaching cardboard legs to the television, you can create the illusion that kneeling players are standing.

After demonstrating his fix, Kimmel said, “Voilà! We made America great again.”
