    President Obama on Monday defended San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the playing of the national anthem.

    “[H]e’s following his constitutional right to make a statement,” Obama said at a press conference in Hangzhou, China, responding to a question about the quarterback. “I think there’s a long history of sports figures doing so.”

    The president added, “I don’t doubt his sincerity. I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about. And if nothing else, he’s generated some conversation around some topics that need to be talked about it.”

    Kaepernick has refused to stand for the pre-game playing of the national anthem, citing racial injustice and the oppression of minorities in America.

    ok
    pretty reasonable response

    the qb fella
    his problem here isn't that he's making some stand that he feels is important
    his problem is that he's not very good at the qb stuff it seems


    ali could say anything
    he was the king of the fucking hill

    Wow I'm shocked! They're both angry mullato's. Obama's notoriously anti-white/anti-America.

    once again, Our Great President just stated the facts.

    he's never wrong, and always well thought out and reasoned in his responses. :golfclap:

    he would also "defend" your right to be a knucklehead.

    he's a CONSTITUTIONAL ATTORNEY.

    People are saying he acted like a child or a spoiled brat or an asshole - repeatedly being disruptive during the anthem is pretty childish- but no one said his behavior was illegal.

    Obama's point, much like all of your posts, was useless.

    Gotta hand it to obama and the posters here. I totally thought he was going to be arrested for this. Thanks for the explanations, you learn something new every day!

    Shock. Worst president ever stays true to form. Hitlery wants to bring in 5 times the muzzies the worst president ever has brought in and grant amnesty to all the undocumented democrats.

    So the President of the United States felt the need to address the decision of a scrub football player who won't even be in the league next year?

    Great use of your time and your staff's time, Mr. Obama. Incredible priority management.
