Live from Moscow, action star Steven Seagal said that he found the recent National Football League protests to be "outrageous" and "disgusting" during an unusual interview with Piers Morgan on "Good Morning Britain".

"I think it's outrageous, I think it's a joke, it's disgusting", Seagal said.

Seagal appeared on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday, and of course, like millions of other who still don't realize the players aren't protesting the flag or anthem, but the injustices that black people face, Seagal went on a faux patriotism rant. "This kind of propaganda is really a diversion".

Seagal has called Putin "one of the greatest world leaders" and that he's not "afraid to get up and do what needs to be done" in the past. "But I don't agree they should hold the U.S hostage by taking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football, imposing their political views. I respect the American flag", said Seagal of the protests.

The action star also addressed the political situation in the USA since Donald Trump became president.

Giving his view on the USA president, the legend, who recently became a Russian citizen said: "I think that we have a really unfortunate situation in the sense that even though he was democratically elected, there are so many people out there that don't think that's the case".

He said he sympathized with Trump's plight in trying to achieve his agenda because of "enemies within". We have a tonne of enemies within.

"We don't have a political relationship", Seagal said, "We really talk about the martial arts, philosophy, people and dilemmas in life".

The Michigan-born martial artist became a Russian citizen a year ago following a presidential decree from Putin.

The actor concluded that the belief that Russian Federation interfered with the US election is the result of "astronomical propaganda", and meant as some sort of "diversion".
