Dave Zirin, sports editor of The Nation Magazine, went on an epic rant blasting Donald Trump for his comments at a recent political rally regarding free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Ignoring the fact that it’s bizarre a president is still holding rallies like he’s campaign, Trump’s comments on Kaepernick raised plenty of eyebrows.
Trump boasted that he was the reason Kaep wasn’t getting a job, because teams feared receiving a “mean tweet” from the president. While that’s obviously false, there does appear to be some sort of collusion going on with NFL teams to keep Kaepernick — who many view as a distraction and lightning rod for controversy — out of the league.
But those comments from Trump about a free agent quarterback drew the ire of Zirin, who began calling the president a “jackass” for using his platform on such a cause, during an appearance on “The LeBatard Show.”
Dan LeBatard attempted to get the conversation back on track, while others laughed hysterically as Zirin continued to blast the Commander in Tweet.
