Kaine: You Have To Respect What Colin Kaepernick Is Doing


This morning, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Tim Kaine (D-VA) about 49er’s Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s controversial decision to sit during the national anthem. “You got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience,” Kaine told Stephanopoulos. “You got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience t so I wouldn’t presume to tell him what to do.”

Kaepernick has attacked Kaine’s running mate Hillary Clinton in recent days saying, “We have a presidential candidate who’s 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?”
