New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is apologizing for saying players who kneel in protest when the NFL season starts would be "disrespecting the flag." Brees was asked Wednesday how the league should react if more players kneel in protest during the national anthem, as Colin Kaepernick did in 2016. We get the latest from Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca. Also, we speak with Bao Nguyen, the director of "Be Water," the new ESPN documentary about the life of the late film star Bruce Lee. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's June 4, 2020, full broadcast.
