It seems that everyone with access to the internet has an opinion on how Colin Kaepernick is helping or hurting America.
But can we draw a line when former presidents of foreign countries get involved? Former President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is jumping into the court of public opinion, and told the world what he thought of the former NFL quarterback.
He tweeted in defense of Kaepernick,
“The #NFL season will start this week, unfortunately once again @Kaepernick7 is not on a NFL roster. Even though he is one of the best Quarterbacks in the league.”
This hot take immediately got the attention of Americans who wasted no time in letting Mr. Ahmadinejad know how wrong his assessment of Kaepernick’s skills actually was.
He opted out of his 49er contract. John Elway offered a contract and said so publicly. Kaeperdick is smart enough to have learned how to project racism and make it a bankable business bc liberals are stupid enough to buy in. — StarkRavingConservative (@DICK79238083) September 4, 2018
Awesome player?!?!? Every defensive coordinator had him pegged in Year 2 and Year 3 was ineffective. Few teams run a system to fit him…see, he depends on a certain system. He was pegged and that means doomed. — StarkRavingConservative (@DICK79238083) September 4, 2018
Some people wanted to have fun with the ultra conservative former head of state,
