This is the most inevitable thing that’s ever happened. Once it got out that Colin Kaepernick took a swipe at Donald Trump in the course of his explanation for his protest of the national anthem, it was inevitable that Donald Trump would respond in exactly this way. There could have been no possible other response from Trump, given what we know about Trump thus far.
“I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing, I think it’s a terrible thing,” Trump said. “And maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try. It won’t happen.”
Hillary, meanwhile, will probably respond to Kaepernick’s swipe at her with polite disagreement or by totally ignoring it, which means that in the end this round will go to Trump because probably 75% of the country (at least) is with him on Kaepernick, right or wrong.
