Trump sings a different tune.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump, who once said “get that son of a bitch off the field” for genuflecting during the national anthem, now believes Colin Kaepernick deserves another opportunity to play in the NFL. The Commander-in-Chief sung a different tune on Wednesday after years of lambasting football players for kneeling while the “Star Spangled Banner” was being performed. The about-face is hardly a surprise. George Floyd’s quietus has everybody changing their mind nowadays.

“If he deserves it, he should,” Trump told ABC’s Scott Thuman during a news conference. “He started off great and then he didn’t end up very great in terms of as a player. He was terrific in his rookie year, I think he was very good in his second year and then something happened. So, his playing wasn’t up to snuff. The answer is absolutely I would, as far as kneeling, I would love to see him get another shot. But obviously, he has to be able to play well. If he can’t play well, I think it would be very unfair.”

Many people believe Trump had Kaepernick ostracized four years ago when he took a knee to protest police brutality and systemic oppression against African Americans. Keep in mind, NFL owners are basically a fraternity of Republican proprietors and many are staunch Trump supporters.

Kaepernick pissed-off all of ’em when he wore pig socks during training camp to mock police.

Then he upped the ante by donning a Fidel Castro t-shirt at a press conference.

Kaepernick last played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

Many people believe Trump’s change of heart has something to do with securing black votes.

Do you agree with them?

Will Trump succeed in procuring negro succor at the ballot box?

  1. So sick and tired hearing about this. Any team that would bring him back would be immediately boycotted by their fans. The guy is a disgrace.

  2. The NFL will continue to decline as its become a game that employs too many degenerates, and has Goodell a communist as its CEO

  3. the man wasn’t kicked out for his ability to play. he was kicked out for starting a silent protest.

  4. Trump NEVER flips. His 8% approval rating with blacks is really making him sweat.

  5. Boy oh Boy. you are really full of it Trump. 1 month ago you would of tore in Kapernick. But things have changed in the last month. You are a desperate racist now. Everyone knows your game. Start Packing your bags Fat Boy. Prison awaits you Fatty

  6. kap has not played in 3 yrs & lets not forget 2 things – he quit & got a 80mil settlement – San fan benched him because he sucked so bad

  7. Hm..wonder how those that support him will take this…

  8. I’m for Colin’s return but Trump now supporting it…. lol lol so shallow and transparent lol lol

  9. Kap was benched, because he stinks and as a result was not getting attention. Then he started kneeling and got attention. The truth is Kap stinks as a football player.

  10. do black people hate America you hate the white man you hate the Judicial System you hate the police department you hate the education system you can’t get a job or always picking on you we’re always keeping you down I wouldn’t live in a country like that. Africa is East just get that way and if you don’t know which way East is just a skull white man we can point you in the right direction good riddance!!!!!

  11. Its all a lie. If BLM indeed did matter. Why would #BLM send a letter to Jow Biden telling him he isnt going to win without the black vote? Its odd how trump is racist but they keep giving Joe chances. Voted FOR bus segregation, signed bill that lead to mass black incarnation and not to mention “you dont vote for em you not black”

  12. Dont be fooled. He will say and do anything to get support from black voters and other races that support racial injustice in order to get your vote then go back on his words if he won.

  13. If Kaepernick was any good he would have been hired a long time ago. He’s just not all that he thinks he is.

  14. Obviously the senile fool can’t remember his stance from just a few days ago. He needs to go, he’s a National Security Threat.

  15. What about all the knuckle-draggers who claimed they were boycotting the NFL because of “kneelers?” Seems like your Orange god no longer gives a $#*! LOL

  16. Eff no! I LOOOVE my POTUS but I don’t agree. Kap sucked, he had multiple chances to sign as a back up and said no. The second he got benched he started kneeling. Eff him

  17. It’s about time the American public quit watching sports and took that time to do their own exercise and let these overpaid idiots get real jobs and get off their high horse.

  18. Ruthless Lover

    he want them nigga votes

  19. Just like that, Trump’s idiot cult supporters are reprogrammed. If Trump tells those idiots to go out and repurchase all of the Nike merchandise that he had them set on fire in their driveways a year or so ago, they would. Trump plays those idiots like a fiddle. He saw where the tide was headed on Kaepernick and kneeling, and he pretends he’s a Kaepernick supporter. How pathetic.

  20. Trump’s polling numbers must really really be bad to support Kaepernick especially after all the trash he talked about him.

  21. Colin will continue to be a toxic pill for the NFL.

  22. If everyone would kneel trumps head would explode

  23. Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody PLAYS LIKE KAEPERNICK, to say, ‘Get that son of a HCTIB ON the field right now, out, he’s HIRED. He’s HIRED!’,” Trump said. “You know, some owner is gonna do that.

  24. I couldn’t fully tell you ‘Everything’ that Kaepernick TRULY DESERVES! But I am beyond Confident, that Kaepernick’s actions are TRULY responsible for me NEVER watching or supporting the NFL for supporting such blatant Anti U.S.A. behavior!

  25. I wonder who told him to say that? He is so desperate now for votes that he is having to resort to this.

  26. OMG!!!! Now my president is gonna support that piece of #$%$ kaperdick!!!WTF!!!!Screw you trump!!!!I will not vote at all.No one to vote for.

  27. Yeah, pay no mind to the fact that Trump purposely assassinated Kaepernick’s career. Now Trump is pretending that he supports the NFL rehiring him. What a political #$%$ Trump is.

  28. Trump is either a creature of no principles or a creature of hypocrisy. He has previously said he disapproved of kneeling during the national anthem, which Kaepernick started. If he believes what he said — kneeling during the national anthem is wrong — then his support for Kaepernick’s possible return tells us the he doesn’t even believe what he says. If he doesn’t believe what he said it but said it any way, then he is a hypocrite in every sense of the word. Kudos to Republicans for showing how vile and shameless they are by giving this creature uncontested, non-existent primary for 2020 presidential election.

  29. BuddhatheBlackDog

    Trump is a chameleon, with no conscience or empathy.

  30. Raymond O'Donohoe

    When Colin Kaepernick needs the opinion of a dimwitted moron with the IQ of a
    root vegetable he’ll ask Donald Trump.

  31. Yes , rehire Colin Kaepernick and I hope he has a breakout season and then quits. Mr Kaepernick does not need football anymore. He has proven his worth as a civil rights defender. FUq THE NFL …..they racist too.

  32. Its amazing when its close to election time..people change their tune..pure politics……

  33. 😂😂😂😂 Donald Trump bitched about him and his protests 😑 his Trumptards gonna be like “see, Mr Orange good blag blah blah” 😑😑😑

  34. Derrick McCombs

    He’ll do ANYTHING to get re-elected!

  35. Johnathan Brown

  40. I wonder what Joe Biden thinks? Where is he?

  41. YEH I GUESS HE WOULD NOW UP FOR
    RE-ELECTION REMEMBER HE PLAYS GAMES THE APPRENTICE PEOPLE

  42. People are allowed to change their minds, are they not? How are people suppose to improve and evolve as a people with this deep unwillingness to forgive or give people the benefit of a doubt?

  43. Its not up to Trump so why does he think he needs to express his opinion?

  44. If there is kneeling, then the Nfl is dead this year.

  45. Andrew Moseley

    Kneeling will cost the NFL a lot of money this time around.

  46. John Escalante
