Setting aside the obvious smear that Kaepernick or any of the other players who've protested during the anthem to draw attention to police brutality and inequality "hate our country", Patrick has apparently been feeding at the same trough as Ted Cruz and the Texas Republican Party. Trump has been heavily critical of the protest.
"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good".
'I honor the flag.
Trump's Twitter question inspired many people to suggest why Nike had recruited Kaepernick for the campaign.
Taya Kyle, the wife of late Navy SEAL and sniper Chris Kyle, was one of those people who were upset at Nike's selection, so she tore into them and the former quarterback on Tuesday over what it actually means to make a sacrifice.
"What was Nike thinking?".
The Kaepernick ad sparked some backlash on social media, with critics calling for a Nike boycott and even posting photos and videos of Nike products set on fire.
The nation's largest police union and an organization that represents black police officers have differing views on the controversial ad by Nike featuring free-agent National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
College of the Ozarks, a private, Christian, liberal arts school, made a point of showing their patriotism previous year when they revised their sports contracts to add a stipulation that respect for the American flag and national anthem must be shown by all players and coaches.
Nike's use of Kaepernick has led to calls for boycotts by some customers.
"Quite frankly, long after all of this is done (Kaepernick) will be looked at as somebody that changed this sport and changed the dynamics of all athletes in general in our country", Jenkins said.
That policy was later shelved after protests from players.
When Kaepernick and I met and talked just six days later, a few hours before the 49ers were set to play the San Diego Chargers, we discussed a lot, but more importantly we listened to each other.
