Colin Kaepernick has made headlines for months thanks to his protests during the National Anthem. But Stephen A. Smith is now imploring his fellow journalists to quit giving him attention.
The reason he wants the media to ignore him is that Kaepernick admitted that he didn’t vote yesterday. After months of demanding change and political action, he sat out the biggest opportunity to affect change of the year. Smith thinks that makes him a hypocrite and completely de-legitimizes the arguments he’s made.
He really lets loose on Kaepernick, and it’s definitely worth watching the whole thing.
"For him not to vote…as far as I'm concerned, everything he said meant absolutely nothing!"
