Teresa Kaepernick — mother of former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick — responded to President Donald Trump’s remarks in Alabama on Friday night in which he said that NFL owners should “get that son-of-a-b*tch off the field” when players protest by taking a knee during the national anthem.

“Guess I’m a proud b*tch,” said Ms. Kaepernick, who is white and is Colin Kaepernick’s adopted mother.

Deadspin.com’s Lindsey Adler called Teresa Kaepernick “to ask her how it feels to have the president of the United States trashing her son and his right to protest over and over again.”

Ms. Kaepernick made it clear that she speaks only for herself, not her son, but went on to scorch Pres. Trump for attacking Americans’ right to free speech.

“It’s disappointing that Trump is the president and talks the way he talks, though,” she said. “It’s just incredibly disappointing. Rick and I had never been real political people, but prior to when all of the campaigning was going on, I mean, it didn’t take more than a minute to realize we didn’t want Donald Trump in the presidency.”

“The guy is not all there,” she went on, “and I can’t tell you how shocked we were when he won, but we have been pretty vocal about it since long before Colin took a knee. So, we have some pretty strong feelings about that part of things. To see this man that you have no respect for, basically because of all that he’s done in this presidency so far, slandering my kid publicly.”

Published

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that voters are casting early ballots in numbers on track to set a historic record — including in some critical battleground states.

"Early-voting counts suggest a record level of civic participation before Election Day. The tens of millions of ballots already cast show highly enthusiastic voters are making sure their votes are counted amid a pandemic," said the report.

15.8 million people in battleground states have already voted, and in some states, like Michigan and Wisconsin, more people have voted early so far than did in the entire early voting period of 2016. In North Carolina, meanwhile, 2 million ballots have been cast — more than double the same amount at this point in 2016.
