The widow of  Pat Tillman, the football star who quit the NFL and signed up for the Army Rangers after the Sept. 11 attacks, is criticizing President Donald Trump and others who are politicizing his legacy amid the controversy over NFL player protests during the national anthem.

“Pat’s service, along with that of every man and woman’s service, should never be politicized in a way that divides us. We are too great of a country for that,” Marie Tillman said in a statement. “Those that serve fight for the American ideals of freedom, justice and democracy.”

“The very action of self expression and the freedom to speak from one’s heart — no matter those views — is what Pat and so many other Americans have given their lives for. Even if they didn’t always agree with those views.

 

“It is my sincere hope that our leaders both understand and learn from the lessons of Pat’s life and death, and also those of so many other brave Americans.”

On Monday, Trump retweeted a photo of Tillman in an attempt to promote his stance on the recent NFL protests that have prompted several players to kneel during the National Anthem.

This is just the latest instance of Tillman’s story being pulled into the political controversy. Tillman left a multimillion-dollar NFL contract after four seaons playing for the Arizona Cardinals to join the Army Rangers in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Two years after enlisting, he was killed by friendly fire during a tour of duty in Afghanistan. He was 27.

 

Tensions between Trump and NFL players – the majority of whom are black – have been running high in recent days after he spoke out against NFL player Colin Kaepernick and other players kneeling during the “Star Spangled Banner” to protest police brutality and racism.

On Sunday, NFL players put on a united front after Trump’s controversial comments.

Over 100 players linked arms, knelt, or simply stayed in the locker room during the national anthem during several games.

The demonstration came after Trump encouraged NFL owners to fire the players who kneel in protest during the National Anthem. He called the move a display of “total disrespect” for the country and referred to protestors as “sons of bitches.”

Harper Beckham is daddy’s little girl!

On Tuesday, Victoria Beckham shared a sweet photo of her 6-year-old daughter wrapped in her father’s David Beckham‘s arms.

“I love my daddy x Kisses,” the former Spice Girls singer captioned the shot. “We love u.”

The two have always had a special bond — David gushing about his little girl on her birthday in July.

“Happy Birthday to our special little young lady …Such a special girl who brings so much joy and happiness into our lives,” the 42-year-old soccer star wrote, after taking Harper to attend a tea party at Buckingham Palace — where she and some friends even posed with Princess Eugenie of York. “Happy 6th birthday ( I can’t believe your 6 already ) have the most amazing day we love you pretty lady x”

Victoria, 43, shouldn’t feel jealous of Harper’s connection with her dad. After all, she and Harper have a their own mother-daughter bond, cuddling in an Instagram photo on July 7.

Harper also appears to have inherited her mom’s sense of fashion, too.

“She’s very girly, so she loves to play with makeup,” Victoria told Seth Meyers during a stop by Late Night in 2016. “She has been able to run in a pair of high heels for a long time. So proud. So proud.”

Harper is Victoria and David’s fourth child and only girl. The couple also share sons Brooklyn, 18, Romeo James, 15, and Cruz, 12.
