Colin Kaepernick just created a lawsuit attacking President Trump. According to Kaepernick’s attorney, Mark Geragos, there is “a statistical impossibility that Mr. Kaepernick has not been employed or permitted to try out for any NFL team since the initiation of his free agency period.” There’s no way he could just be a bad player according to the suit.
The lawsuit is against the NFL, and it names President Trump as a conspirator.
“The owners of Respondent NFL Teams have been quoted describing their communications with President Trump, who has been an organizing force in the collusion among team owners in their conduct towards Mr. Kaepernick and other NFL players. Owners have described the Trump Administration as causing paradigm shifts in their views toward NFL players,” it says.
“On or around September 22, 2017, during a campaign rally speech in Alabama, President Donald Trump referred to NFL players that knelt during the national anthem, as sons of b****es (implying that Mr. Kaepernick was a ―son of a b****‖) and demanded that NFL teams fire these players,” it says.
“Since then, President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have posted Tweets and engaged in various public relations stunts designed to retaliate against Mr. Kaepernick and other players that have joined in Kaepernick’s peaceful protest,” it says. They are looking for up to $27 million in the lawsuit.
