Cowboys fan Christie praises team’s protest before anthem

FOX New Mexico

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) Devoted Dallas Cowboys fan Chris Christie says how the team handled its protest around the national anthem was “perfect.”

The Republican New Jersey governor addressed the controversy Friday at an unrelated news conference in Trenton. He says he respects players’ right to protest but thinks it’s “disrespectful” not to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Dallas players and owner Jerry Jones kneeled and locked arms before the anthem Monday night in Arizona and then stood for the anthem.
