Shannon Sharpe does not mince words. And he has no patience for bullshit.

So if anyone was going to speak truth to power when it came to the displays of "unity" and "solidarity" across the NFL last weekend — following President Donald Trump's inflammatory comments suggesting players protesting during the national anthem should be fired — it would be him.

O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing. Nevertheless, demands for the host's firing have reached a fever pitch in recent days.
