Colin Kaepernick was recently named GQ’s Citizen of the Year, per their magazine cover shown below:
Maxine Waters was thrilled to hear the news when pressed about it in New York by TMZ.
“I think he has absolutely sacrificed an awful lot for what he believes in. And people with courage to do what they think is right, despite the consequences, must be respected and honored.”
Here is video of her reaction:
Waters’ analysis of Kaepernick doesn’t come to much surprise as she has a complete opposite view of how many Republicans feel many issues, including those that surround Colin Kaepernick.
It is ironic, however, that Waters says those with courage to do what they think is right, despite backlash should be respected. President Trump has done exactly what she says, yet Waters often shows very little respect for him.
