Sen. Lindsey Graham called Colin Kaepernick a “racist” on Sunday following the former 49ers quarterback’s critical comments about the United States amid escalating tensions with Iran.
“He’s a loser on and off the field,” Graham said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
I’m a big fan, but please don’t compare Soleimani to the people abused by our government. This man brutalized and caused the deaths of thousands of people in Iraq and Syria. It would be insulting to the victims of police brutality over here to equate them with this war criminal.
“You can’t make this up.Colin Kaepernickaccuses the U.S. of ‘terrorist attacks’ against non whites for killing a man who is responsible for the deaths of over 600 Americans. I think you should sit this one out, Colin. By the way, how is that NFL career going?”tweetedAndrew Pollack, father of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.
Graham also addressed remarks made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who called President Donald Trump a “monster” after he declared Iranian cultural sites as potential military targets.
This is a war crime.
Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children – which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a “tough guy.”
