Trump on Kaepernick

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Trump: “I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing. I think it’s a terrible thing, and you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try, it’s not gonna happen.”

Hillary? Hello? Hillary?

  1. Turns out a guy that can run and throw either can't or won't learn to read defenses. So he sits with his million dollar shoe collection and pretends to be oppressed. Kinda gets you right there. You know. Like a hemorrhoid.

  2. You know, Kaepernick has a right to have an opinion about the country. However, making it a public display really does say more about Kaepernick than it does about the US.

    1. We have the right to agree, disagree, or just ignore him. I think he's shown himself to be in the not-so-smart group.

  3. To paraphrase highly regarded American philosopher, Yogi Berra: If he wants to leave the country, who is going to stop him? (If the fans don't want to come to the ballpark, who is going to stop them?)

  4. With his $100 million plus contract ($19 million this year alone) Kaepernick has the financial resource to do something POSITIVE about the oppression he claims to exist. Instead, what he's doing is entirely NEGATIVE. It accomplishes nothing other than to make him less effective as a possible spokesman for the cause of the black community. Yes, it's his right as an American to be a complete schmuck, but if he wants to improve the lives of people he says are oppressed, he can sit down at his desk, open his check book, and fund the outreach projects of groups that will work to change the situation. All he is doing now with his childish stunt is to breed widespread resentment among people who would probably prefer to be his ally if he had not cast them as the enemy. Heck, the average non-black person doesn't explicitly oppress the average black person; they have their own problems and their own lives to lead, and if anything they are largely indifferent to people they don't know or don't socialize with. In a liberal world, it's the government's official "job" to oppress people, which, under Obama, it has succeeded in doing as never before. And lest we forget, it's been accomplished with the overwhelming vote of approval by his fellow blacks in 2008 and again in 2012. The question is, will they vote against self-interest in 2016?

  5. If Kaepernick had expressed reservations about homosexual marriage he would have been run out of the NFL within 48 hours. Guaranteed.

  6. His coach supports him. The NFL supports him. Lombardi would have kicked him off the team. Tom Landry would have traded him. Pete Rozelle would have suspended him. The NFL has been taken over by SJWs (Beyonce Super Bowl half time show anyone?) and seems to want to alienate its fans. I've been watching less and less of it every year. Dallas Cowboys can't wear helmet decals honoring shot cops but black Rams players can come out with "Hands up, don't shoot". They claim they believe in "free expression". What do you think would happen if a white guy came out with a Confederate flag?

    1. Bill Belichick would trade him. With the Patriots, it's one for all...and one for all! He's tougher than a career Marine drill sergeant.

    2. BTW, I don't watch much of either Negro professional sports league, the NBA or the NFL (and you probably thought the N stood for national). Basketball was ruined by Michael Jordan's circus acrobatics and football has been ruined by the league's obsessive concern for its snowflake quarterbacks. I'd prefer to read a great book like "Trump the Press." Who wouldn't?

    3. I will always admire Michael Jordan for his work ethic and all the pleasure my late Dad got from watching him play.

  7. I would expect a trade in his short-to-medium future.

  8. Like I said to my liberal family members...Colin's agent is right know getting him a spot as the backup QB for the Montreal Alouettes. And if he doesn't stand and sing O Canada in French, there are some hockey players up there who will kneecap him with a Sher-Wood. Career over, Colin.

    1. Backup QBs in the CFL make six figure salaries, not a million dollars a game. Besides, to be the backup QB in Montreal would require him to beat out Rakeem Cato, a two-time West Virginia Athlete of the Year.

    4. @gad: It doesn't matter how much CK would earn as a QB in the CFL. The Niners are still on the hook for the $61 million guaranteed portion of CK's $114 million multi-year contract. They'd have to pay him every bit of it if he were to join up with a CFL team. Salary is not the reason CK would want to play in the CFL if SF chooses to release him because of his poor play. The CFL would be his best option to rehabilitate his reputation and skills so he could eventually get back into the NFL. On the other hand, as others have said, the public furor he's helped the media to create may save his spot on the Niners bench, where the most serious injury he'll likely get this season is a splinter in his derriere.

  9. According to ZeroHedge and the accompanying CNN video, Kaepernick also said: "You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist. We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?"

    The media left that out.

    1. I've read that in several media outlets Hank. But imagine that Hank, said QB despises Hillary yet Trump doesn't like him, even though QB spoke his mind bluntly with a very un-PC statement (just like Trump); said America is broken (just like Trump); has lots of money (just like Trump); has said America is not the land of opportunity for everyone (just like Trump). So a millionaire athlete can't criticize America on behalf of the less fortunate but two billionaire presidential candidates can? Interesting.

    2. I love it when Libs start picking dingleberries outta their butts to hurl at conservatives when all else is lost. Expect more dingleberries before 11/8.

    3. I love it when Cons eat the dingleberries outta of Libs' butts to show their true hypocrisy.
