Tom Brady Shares His Thoughts on Kaepernick’s Nike Ad in One Click

Published

Love him or hate him, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is one of the greatest arms in NFL history and being a living legend, people sort of give a rip what you think about controversial issues. It comes along with the territory of being a big sports star.

Earlier this week, Nike revealed that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be the new face of their 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, a move that has polarized the professional sports world, due in large part to Kaepernick’s disrespectful form of protest during the National Anthem.

So what does Tom Brady think of all of this? He answers with one click.

Brady’s official Instagram account “liked” the ad Tuesday and signaled his approval of the campaign that has inspired many to burn their tennis shoes and boycott the iconic shoe manufacturer.

Kaepernick, a former 49ers quarterback, started a political firestorm after he began protesting for the “Black Lives Matter” movement by kneeling during the national anthem. Other players took up the cause, but it really caught on after President Donald Trump criticized the protests during a rally in Pennsylvania.

Kaepernick has since issued a complaint against the NFL and accused the team owners of conspiring against allowing him to play professional football again. An arbitrator in August ruled against the NFL and allowed for Kaepernick’s complaint to move forward.

Screenshots of the “like” spread on social media.

“You know, I don’t know,” Brady said of the charges made by Kaepernick in November. “I have no idea if he’s being blackballed.

“I competed against him,” he added. “I thought he was a damn good quarterback. And he’s played at a high level, brought his team to Super Bowls. You know… that’s how I feel about him.”

The real question now is whether or not Brady will actually release some sort of verbal statement affirming his support of Kaepernick’s campaign or if he’ll let this “like” sum up everything he has to say on the topic and then just move on.

Heck, maybe Brady just really likes the slogan on the poster? Who knows, right?

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
