Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) reacted to U.S. hammer thrower Gwen Berry turning away from the flag during the national anthem.
“We don’t need any more activist athletes,” Crenshaw said. “She should be removed from the team. The entire point of the Olympic team is to represent the United States of America. That’s the entire point.”
“It’s one thing when these NBA players do it, okay fine, we’ll just stop watching,” Crenshaw added. “But now the Olympic team? And it’s multiple cases of this. They should be removed. That should be the bare minimum requirement is that you believe in the country you’re representing.”
