Donald Trump Jr. Fixed Nike’s Colin Kaepernick Ad and What He Did is a Vast Improvement

Published

on

President Trump’s son, Donald Jr., is not a huge fan of the Colin Kaepernick Nike ad that’s been stirring up so much controversy this week, so he decided to take it upon himself to fix it, posting his new and improved version on Instagram.

As you might expect, the Internet had a whole lot to say about it.

Here’s the original ad:

Since he is a billionaire, Trump committed to giving the salary that he earns as president to different causes.

Trump donated the salary that he made in the first quarter of this year “to the Department of Veterans Affairs, a gesture the White House said underscores his commitment to recognizing the sacrifices to military and their families,” the Military Times reported.

Since taking over as President, Trump has lost approximately $400 million in personal wealth — which is most likely the greatest decline in personal wealth any U.S. President has ever endured.

It seems highly unlikely that anyone would really care about the ad campaign or its message, if they had chosen a better spokesperson to be the face of it.

However, Kaepernick is a man who has prided himself on disparaging his country, his flag, and the folks who have bled and died to provide him with liberty. That’s just not acceptable on a societal level.

Plus, his extreme left-wing positions on issues has alienated a lot of the NFL fanbase as more and more players join in his faux crusade, which has hurt the sport tremendously.

No one is saying not to stand boldly for what you believe in. Heck, that’s what makes America great. The problem is how he’s chosen to go about it. If he protested in other ways, there would be people who disagreed, sure, but at least respect and gratitude for one’s country would be preserved.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

Published

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
