If you were wondering what Colin Kaepernick thinks about President Trump calling any NFL player who protests during the national anthem a "son of a b***h" and the many players who knelt or locked arms during the anthem this past Sunday in reaction to 45, perhaps his smile says it all.
The woke quarterback, who remains a free agent, was stopped by Splash News, as reported by TMZ, on the way to a gym in New York City yesterday and was asked about Trump's comments and NFL players clapping back. But all he did was flash a smile that says it all.
"Hey, Colin, how you doing, man? Can I just ask you what you think about all this, all the take-the-knee stuff and President Trump?" the reporter asked Kaep, who was with his girlfriend, Hot 97 personality Nessa Diab.
"That's OK," Kaepernick said, smiling. "I appreciate the offer, but I'm not doing that today."
And you don't need to speak about it, Colin. We understand that your season-long kneeling during the anthem last year was a protest against racism and the police brutality against unarmed Black men and also what it has turned into with the same NFL owners, who supported Trump, now kneeling on the field in reaction to 45 calling any protesting player a "son of a b***h."
