          Today my feelings on the New York Times Op-Ed about President Trump and the White House. Not because I support the President because I do not, but because this whole Op-Ed episode is so deplorable.

          Understand this – we do not use anonymous letters here at KVOE. When I say “do not,” I mean Do Not!

          At KVOE we have on occasion gone to the person being singled out by an anonymous letter and ask that person if they wanted to respond, but we don’t use anonymous information on air.

          It was interesting that when the Times released the Op-Ed they said they knew the person who wrote it and that this person was “credible.”

          My reaction to that is: sorry New York Times, but you don’t get to judge “credible” because you gave your credibility away when you printed the anonymous letter!

          One TV commentator said – “the New York Times has lower standards than most local radio stations.”

          With that said it is interesting to speculate who might have written the Op-Ed.

          My first thought was this letter wasn’t particularly unique suggesting anyone, including me, could have written it after reading the book Fire and Fury and Bob Woodward’s new book Fear which incidentally came out almost simultaneously with the Op-Ed.

          Heck, the thought has passed by me that it could have been written internally by people at the New York Times.

          Evidently, a committee at the Times made the decision to print the letter. Do you suppose at the newspaper there is some level of nervousness that someone might break? If CNN came calling offering a million or two you’d think someone might squeal.

          And finally, there seems to be a pretty high level of agreement that writing this anonymous letter was a cowardly act. If these things are half true – and I think they likely are – then this person should have manned up, taken credit for telling the American people the truth and been prepared to suffer the consequences.

          The intrigue as to “who done it” is higher today that when we were trying to figure out who shot JR!

          The word “deplorable” was used earlier to describe my opinion of the entire event. Printing an anonymous letter is bad journalism and remember our standards here at KVOE are higher than those of the New York Times!

          I’m Steve Sauder and these thoughts are mine!

The National Football League kicks off tomorrow night.

Our President Donald Trump is not one of the NFL’s biggest supporter.

An article in The Atlantic titled: Trump’s Divisive and Relentless Politicization of the NFL helps me tell you why.

Mark Leibovich argues in his new book, Big Game, that the president has made the league central to his politics, pitting his largely white base against the mostly African American players.

Remember Colin Kaepernick? He's the former 49ers quarterback who started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial inequality in America.

Silently he is Trump's hero because the NFL was clueless how to handle Kaepernick's protests so they gave Trump a new bully pulpit.

With the quarterback and our national anthem as his foils Trump has had a field day. His tweets were not only pleasing to folks who harbor racial prejudices but to those who were not fans of the NFL and to people who saw the connection between football and America becoming soft thus promoting Trump's "Make America Great Again!"

Adding to the confusion was the fact that many of the NFL owners were friends with Trump and had donated to his campaign. Leibovich points out in his book that leadership in the NFL is very weak and the owners while rich are not as a group all that intelligent.

In the meantime, Trump does everything he can to keep the controversy started by Kaepernick alive. He even stole much of the Super Bowl hype with the controversy about who would show up at the White House or not.

Recently when two of Trump’s top aides were pleading or being found guilty of crimes our President took on ESPN for announcing they would not be showing the playing of the Star Spangled Banner on their Monday Night NFL games.

His email to donors accused ESPN of "spineless surrender to the politically correct liberal mob."

Never mind that ESPN's policy on this was not a change from previous years.

As for Trump versus the NFL - this conflict is working well to propel his political career but it hasn’t been an effective remedy for one of his greatest underlying personal desires.

Since the 1980's Donald Trump has been rebuked several times in his quest to become an NFL owner.

So remember as the next episodes of Trump vs. the NFL unfold - revenge is always one of our President's top motivators!

Thankfully, it’s football season!
