Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie Sanders tweeted out her admiration for Colin Kaepernick and called him an inspiration. This coming from the only person in recent memory to bankrupt an entire college, defraud the state and get away with it. To read the full story, click on the title:
The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that the team has voted to give Colin Kaepernick the Len Eshmont Award, a prize given to the player who “best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont—a Navy vet—an original member of the 1946 49ers team.”
“I think the thing, to me, that stood out was it was my teammates that voted on it. That really means a lot to me. I can’t express how grateful I am to have teammates like I did this year. They stood behind me regardless of any situation that went on, had a lot of great conversations in the locker room and I think even today in a situation where we have a lot of injuries, a lot of players that are new stepping on the field, we went out, we fought together and we stayed together to the very end and gave everything we had for each other. So, to me, that’s what stood out to me was that it was from my teammates and it really means a lot.”
And this is how Jane Sanders sees Kaepernick:

The only thing Kaepernick gets credit for from me is that he has shown disrespect for the flag and to our soldiers. Certainly his playing was anything but inspirational and he has in all likelihood played his last game in the NFL, although he might catch on in Canada.
