AWFUL: Jane Sanders Praises Colin Kaepernick for Inspiring “Respect” by his “Dignified Actions’
Colin Kaepernick Is Jane Sanders Hero
Last week Colin Kaepernick won an award from his teammates that named him as the player who ‘best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play…’
From The Nation:
The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that the team has voted to give Colin Kaepernick the Len Eshmont Award, a prize given to the player who “best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont—a Navy vet—an original member of the 1946 49ers team.”
Kaepernick responded by saying:
“I think the thing, to me, that stood out was it was my teammates that voted on it. That really means a lot to me. I can’t express how grateful I am to have teammates like I did this year. They stood behind me regardless of any situation that went on, had a lot of great conversations in the locker room and I think even today in a situation where we have a lot of injuries, a lot of players that are new stepping on the field, we went out, we fought together and we stayed together to the very end and gave everything we had for each other. So, to me, that’s what stood out to me was that it was from my teammates and it really means a lot.”
Jane Sanders came out on Friday on Twitter and praised Colin Kaepernick for “Inspired respect” with his “dignified stance/words”.

So, bestowing upon Kaepernick an award for launching perhaps the most disrespectful, public smear campaign against our military in modern history now has the blessing of the wife of the man who came closest to unseating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.
This reminds us once again of our incredible fortune that neither Jane O’Meara Sanders, nor Bill Clinton, will serve as first lady of the United States of America.
