President Donald Trump is not in the good graces of NFL and NBA players after he fired insults at both groups Friday night and again Saturday morning. 

At a rally in Alabama Friday night, Trump went off the cuff about NFL players who sit or kneel during the national anthem. 

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now. Out. He's fired! He's fired!," Trump said, per ESPN

The NFL and NFL Players' Association have fired back with statements, but the reaction on social media from players that's attracting a ton of attention as well.

Here are a few of the eye-popping responses.

Additionally, some of the NBA's top players are reacting to Trump's early Saturday message to Steph Curry on Twitter. Trump withdrew Curry's invitation to the White House to celebrate with the NBA champion Warriors after Curry said publicly Friday he's not going to attend the ceremony.
