Ryan Lochte, who last represented America by destroying a gas station bathroom in Brazil then lying about it and throwing his teammates under the bus by fleeing the country to go home to his mama and a stylist before his Matt Lauer interview, was asked about Colin Kaepernick.
“You know, I’m really proud to stand for my National Anthem. I remember especially this past Olympics when I was getting that gold, [having] a lot of emotional feeling.”
Let’s not pretend Lochte would know the words to the National Anthem even if he was a Trump charity karaoke party, but I haven’t wrote about Colin Kaepernick’s protest because its pretty much pointless. Either you understand what actual freedom is or you don’t. If you’re more upset about his method of protest than the reasons he’s protesting, you probably would have had fun in the 60s calling Martin Luther King. Jr. a “troublemaker” or a “race baiter” (Hint: there’s also a word for you). And if the only way you can show pride in America is by standing for an inanimate piece of cloth instead of standing for the people that the piece of cloth is supposed to represent and protect yet has failed to do so, Kim Jong-il would love to have you. North Korea. Everything sunny all the time always good time beach party.
