Obama: Kaepernick exercising his constitutional right

August 25, 2019


IT’S ALWAYS A LITTLE NOISY THERE. IN TERMS OF MR. KAEPERNICK, I GOT TO CONFESS I HAVEN’T BEEN THINKING ABOUT FOOTBALL WHILE I’VE BEEN OVER HERE AND I HAVEN’T BEEN FOLLOWING THIS CLOSELY, BUT MY UNDERSTANDING AT LEAST IS THAT HE’S EXERCISING HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO MAKE A STATEMENT. I THINK THERE’S A LONG HISTORY OF SPORTS FIGURES DOING SO. I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS YOU CAN DO IT AS A GENERAL MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO THE FLAG AND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND THE MEANING THAT THAT HOLDS FOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM AND THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR US. THAT IS A TOUGH THING FOR THEM TO GET PAST TO THEN HEAR WHAT HIS DEEPER CONCERNS ARE, BUT I DON’T DOUBT HIS SINCERITY BASED ON WHAT I’VE HEARD. I THINK HE CARES ABOUT SOME REAL LEGITIMATE ISSUES THAT HAVE TO BE TALKED ABOUT AND IF NOTHING ELSE WHAT HE’S DONE IS HE’S

  1. fuck this guy people died so this bitch can sit on his ass fuck that how can this man be defining him he the one that marking this great country divided. well I guess we going to have a second civil war if this shit keep up

  2. remember that obama when we kill anyone that tries to issue an order or tries to take our firearms because we're just exercising our constitutional rights.

  3. If Kaepernick was Iranian or Chinese, and he did this and was getting attacked for it, you Americans would be banging on about their freedom of speech.

  4. Meanwhile Obama is trying to destroy the 2nd and 4th amendment. All he is doing is sticking up for a halfbreed muslim like himself.

  5. Obama get those the words out lol….. Here is a topic that needs to be talk about, WHY WOULD ANYONE pay money, risk one's life and WATCH a BUNCH of STRANGERS on Steroids then on their ego trip play a Kids game…… Why?

  6. I used to play many sports. We all got fired up to play during the anthem. Thats a team. Obviously he's a total whiner and idiot. He could have made a bigger impact in an intelligent way. He sparked the police shooting conversation? No he didn't. All he has done is divide more people. I hope some good comes from this.

  7. Our troops fight so Kaepernick has the right to sit for the national anthem. He's still a dumbass loser, but he has that right.

  8. Obama is an incredibly greasy politician.  He slathers garbage around, almost as if he's trying to incite America.  From Trayvon to Michael Brown, he's thrown his support in with aggressive thugs yet never admits what the cops are forced to contend with.  He never mentions the savage sub-culture that hunts down white people in Milwaukee while burning down their own neighborhoods.  He wont discuss how 21st century liberalism has gutted the family unit in urban areas, leaving nothing but a generation of fatherless freeloaders in it's wake.  And Obama wants to forward the agenda of a dope like Kaepernick while the inner cities are rotting away.  Stroll over to WorldStarHipHop & see that filthy sub-culture.  No morals.  No values.  No savings for the morrow.  It's pathetic & it's sad.  Obama is truly a dirtbag…and so it CK.

  9. "he's exercising his constitutional right" lol you're damn right he is . fuck that flag . you have a right to sit or stand . and i don't blame him sitting or on a knee . today's society and todays world doesn't portray the real meaning of that flag

  10. Colin Kaepernick doesn't stand for a national anthem and Republicans are out on a witch hunt. Trump calls a POW a coward and insults a Gold Star family of a deceased soldier and he's the GOP nominee.

    Once again Republicans are the most moronic people in America.

  11. how many times has obama said that "we need an honest conversation about race" or something equivalent? the irony is as soon as you bring up grievances around black crime you are labeled a racist. are we having an honest conversation or what the fuck is going on?

  12. How the hell does a guy who hates the country this much get one term, let alone two? Maybe he should sit during the anthem too. He's already irreparably slagged the police, first and second amendments, why stop there. Seriously obama, next time you hear the anthem, throw a tantrum and sit. Just in time for elections, so all voters fully understand the direction the dems want to take the country in. Please sit…..

  13. come on obama really, really? why doesnt he refuse play and pay as well? if he really is so angry he would put his $ where his mouth is, im sure his white parents would be happy for this ungrateful dumb ass. Listen to how he speaks he is not very informed.

  14. We know the Obamas don't respect the flag. Remember when Barry won this first election and dummies in the crowd were all cheering. Moochele said to Barry, "All this for a damn flag?"

  15. The only country that allows you express your free speech yet you are "oppressed". Just look at Richard Sherman's response shows the difference between an educated man and a dumb fuck. Trump 2016.

  16. the answer from the worst president ever, I'm so glad he heading out of the white house. this fuck tard has done nothing but lie. no one should take what he says seriously.

  17. Ok since you brought it up…😆 kapernik (don't care about getting it right) has enough money right now and many years earlier that he could make 1 phone call and someone would pack his stuff, pick him up in a limo, fly him anywherrrrrreeee he wants to go. He could live like a king. Anywhere. He could be there in less than a few hours. He only has to dress and go… so riddle me this folks… why doesn't he do it?  Why doesn't Barbera Striesand? Jane Fonda? Whoopi damn Goldberg? Oppressed? Are you kiddin' me man? Is there more improvement to be made sure. But oppressed? It is with caution that i say what I am thinking right now because i stand to be accused a racist for this comment. Lets talk oppression. This country affords more opportunity than anywhere for anyone. And you and I and all of the other taxpayers rich and poor pay for it. All of the evil corporations that hire people and share profits and donate to great causes pay it. Quit whining America and un-oppress yourself….

  18. god… this fucking asshole pisses me off. cant wait till hes out of office. although nothing better is on the horizon. ughhhhh

  19. Bummer, if you like the U.S. Constitution so much, why are you trying to destroy the 2nd Amendment, and why are you sicking your AG-Lynch on all free speech opposed to Islamo-fascism?

  20. I agree our country has serious issues to be addressed. But, I can't help but wonder if this football player ever thinks about the fact that he is a grown man who is paid millions of dollars to play..a..GAME. Yes, a game.
    What other country does this occur? Does he appreciate that this country made this possible? It's a different angle than the race discussion, but I don't think he has a problem getting those handsome paychecks, being spoiled and leading a cushy life. We have many problems in this country that need to be addressed with unity. Don't expect me to take you seriously though when you take part in something as ridiculous as playing a game, which is meant for fun and recreation, for extraordinary amounts of money. Keep in mind these funds if traced in the shadows are often the fruit of a corrupt, deformed capitalistic ideaology…Many problems in this country. Hypocrites are not role models for those that look at the whole picture.

  21. First, he hasn't created conversation, he has simply caused focus on his actions not issues with police. Second, the long history Obama speaks of is for STAR athletes not backup QBs. Third, the fact Obama validates CK but fails to validate military members who may be hurt by theses actions is consistent with his treatment of police (he rushes to judgement when there is a shooting of a black man before facts are gathered and says these police issues have to stop, but stated he wanted to wait for facts when the police officers were gunned down).

  22. White people got super defensive over what Kaepernick said even tho Kaepernick never mention White people during his interview. This shows that White people know that there isn't freedom and justice for all but since they don't have to deal with inequality it's cool….

  23. President: He has a right to protest like that, even though there are others ways to do it, he is allowed

    Far Right: Fuck you! Don't bring the First Amendment in this! You're only suppose to have freedom of speech against anything PC!!

  24. That damned Flag is suppose to stand for Free Speech ! Not just for Pale face azzholes only !  Take the free speech away , and its no longer America , Stupid pale face Bastards ! Don't even respect your own damn Flag.  ! F***  Your Pugged Azzes!

  25. One thing these social justice warriors and "professional media" types should be asked is; why is it that we never see the headline: suspect killed while trying to disarm police officer.

  26. The reason why black Americans are the lowest on everything because they always listen to someone they never make their own choices, Most of them just want to live off the government and Obama let you but you but your timecard is running out!

  27. BUMMER, WAS IT AN EXAMPLE OF "MESSY DEMOCRACY" WHEN YOU TRIED TO INSTALL WHITE HOUSE AGENTS IN ALL NEWS ROOMS THROUGHOUT THE LAND IN ORDER TO ELMINATE "FALSE NEWS"?  BUMMER, ARE YOU BEING A MESSY DEMOCRAT BY TRYING TO ENFORCE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL OVER THE INTERNET IN ORDER TO ELIMINATE "FALSE IDEAS"?

  28. so he'll go out of his way to make a statement about some privileged rich boy sitting down, but he won't say ANYTHING about the illegal construction of an oil pipeline on Indian reservation and the unjust segregation against it's residents. Fuck you, your a sad excuse for a president. they were right when they called you walking eagle

  29. Where the hell do some of these people get the idea that people hate the country?? I mean some of you are extremely ignorant.. and should be left out the conversation all together

  30. I don't get it… America was founded on the principles of freedom. freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to protest and etc. this man is exercising one of his many freedoms that your founding fathers of your country fought for but when he's exercising his right you guys criticize him and call him unamerican. doesn't that make you hypocrites since you're expecting someone to do something your way that you think is right? I'm no American but isn't criticizing someone who is exercising his constitutional right in itself unamerican? and isn't bashing your president and calling him names ,some of which are very insensitive, also unamerican?

  31. SO WHAT'S NEXT… OBAMBA ORDERING SCHOOL TEACHERS TO TEACH LITTLE KIDS TO CURSE DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND SPIT ON THE AMERICAN FLAG. WTF?

  32. Try not to get upset at all the jackels comments below. They simply have no ability to think on their own. They think, act and feel the way their so called leaders tell them to think, act and feel. They are sheep and nothing will ever change them.

  33. "For our men and women in uniform who fought for us, that is a tough thing for them to get past." Way to stand with your military Mr. Commander in Chief. What a traitor.

  34. He's under contract,  Obongo. He doesn't have a right to engage in conduct detrimental to the team. Wearing socks that depict police officers as "pigs" after eight were slaughtered by BLM terrorists qualifies.

  35. It's his Constitutional right to peacefully protest, so stop cherry picking what you like out of the Constitution like you do the Bible.

  36. What happens if you kneel for the national anthem in China? Can anybody answer me? Why doesn't Obama just ask that question. Damn it if I can be up there… -_-

  37. Yeah its a real shame how Keapernick and Obama are oppressed…. Since things are soooo bad here how about you fucks leave? Go to Saudi Arabia or Iran since they are the least oppressive against black people!!! Lol.

  38. Yes Mr. President, and the new President of the Philippines was exercising his when he called you an SOB. So why did you cancel your meeting with him? Such a damn hypocrite.

  39. Kaepernigg is a has been QB living on a shrinking salary. He has not committed a single penny to the BLM movement. He hopes this stunt will get him attention and maybe he will make a buck from it. Let him move to N. Korea.

  40. After reading a lot of the comments, it looks like a lot of Fox News viewers have moved to CNN. What's wrong, right-wingers? Is Fox News no longer right-wing enough for your tastes?

  41. Good, Obama is talking about constitutional rights of citizens, how about 1st and 2nd amendment rights, how about right of Set Rich to live?
    When muslim cleric was gunned down you found a killer in no time, how about Clinton's
    murder trails, please comment on constitutional rights of these people!

  42. I enjoy reading all these wonderful, hateful remarks. Obama has done his job by creating "Intelligent" dialogue . Those that say he is expanding the racial divide are the ones that are creating it. Rosa Parks, Muhammed Ali, the brothers at the Olympics have all protested peacefully as the Constitution allows. This white hare is the exact same reason why the Republican Party WILL LOSE the upcoming election. As an 11 year veteran I will kneel with Kap any day of the week.

  43. POTUS could have said how inappropriate he felt it was, while still respecting his right to protest. Obama is supposed to be the most patriotic person in the country. He is the princeps civitatis.

  44. Mr. leaving president ….the Flag not only represent something for the men and women in uniform, it represent a lot to the American citizens in general.
    Thank god that you are leaving soon and Hillary is not going to become president

  45. What?   The Philippine's  have constitutional rights.. while Americans have had theirs stolen?  Gawd the 0 bomb is so boring  when he's not reciting a speech.

  46. This world will always be about east vs west, leftwing vs rightwing and sadly especially in America, white vs how dare you say or do that.

  47. For those who aren't adept at Obamaspeake, I offer this translation:

    "Hell yeah I support that gajillionaire professional football QB bitching about the very country that made him an uberwealthy, elitist prick! What do you think I did to get here?!?! There's a sucka in every room, bitches!"

    You're welcome.

  48. Yeah because BLM is a legitimate peaceful and not racist movement because blacks are always victims of racism and are always being picked on by cops. Why was Obama elected again?

  49. This "president" loves when another black millionaire disrespects America. Goes outta his way to COMMEND this scrub.

  50. Kaepernick and 0bama have that in common … they both disrespect the contributions and sacrifices of our proud Law Enforcement and Military personnel

  51. How can our own President be this stupid? He does NOT have the constitutional right to protest on private property and while being paid to do his JOB!!
