Anywhere you turn right now you're going to see someone giving their opinion on the NFL protest controversy. Never one to mince words, Representative Clay Higgins has now weighed in on the controversy via a new video on his Facebook page.

In the video, Higgins says "The NFL has abandoned America. If these guys earning massive paychecks to play a game want to sit down during our national anthem, they can sit their ass down in the locker room."

The video has already racked up almost 7,000,000 views on Facebook.
