Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan responded to President Donald Trump's latest tweet about player protests during the national anthem in which the president again suggested players should be suspended without pay if they refuse to stand.

Jordan wasn't mincing words as he responded in a series of tweets, calling the president a "goober" and a "prepubescent child."

"Guy who won the presidential election... how about we get a statement on the “unite the right” rally 2 being held in DC this weekend... a yr after the first one in Charlottesville???" Jordan tweeted Friday.

"Only way to say it. What a Goober. He is who I thought he was. Guy is 70+ yr old acting out in what was once the highest respected political position, as a overly insecure prepubescent child...

"He won’t govern himself, give him a mentor? Right, members of his cabinet left on their own accord or were dismissed accordingly... But what do I know I’m just a guy who should stick to football."

A Saints fan responded to Jordan's comments, saying he was thinking of giving up his season tickets as a result of the player protests, but Jordan offered to buy his tickets.

Trump's tweet comes after Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills and two-time Super Bowl winner Malcolm Jenkins were among the NFL players who protested during the national anthem on Thursday, as Colin Kaepernick tweeted his support.

The president wrote, in part: "NFL players are at it again. … Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their 'outrage' at something that most of them are unable to define. … Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!"
