Hillary’s Kaine: ‘You Have to Respect’ What Colin Kaepernick is Doing [VIDEO]

“I wouldn’t presume to tell him what to do.”

Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Virginia senator Tim Kaine , appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America with former Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos on Thursday and was asked for his opinion about America-hating San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has vowed to disrespect the American flag, the nation, and our military during Thursday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers — a game in which America’s military will be honored.

“You’re the father of a Marine. What’s your reaction to Colin Kaepernick?” Stephanopoulos asked Kaine.

“You know, you’ve got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience,” Kaine answered. “I mean, I’d do it differently. I think if you really thought about issues and this country, you’d do it differently, and when I heard him explain his rationale, didn’t really make that much sense to me. But you’ve got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience, so I wouldn’t presume to tell him what to do.”

Actually, no you don’t have to respect what Colin Kaepernick is doing, nor do you have to shy away from speaking out about his anti-American actions. Free speech is a two-way street.
