Obama, Megan Rapinoe Stand (Kneel) Behind Kaepernick’s Free Speech

Not a glowing endorsement from the method by President Obama, calling Kaepernick’s decision to kneel down during the national anthem an “exercise of his constitutional right”, and commending him for standing up for an issue he “sincerely believes in”.

As for Megan Rapinoe, she kneeled before the last Team USA game, saying that “as a gay person”, she understands how Kaepernick feels oppressed.

Seemed legit on both fronts. Most interesting part from Obama was his hesitation to say that what Kap’s doing is right, but saying that he understands the anger that some police and veterans have towards the situation.

This won’t be going away any time soon either, as more and more former players continue to come out against him.as more and more former players continue to come out against him.
