Donald Trump LOVES to put his stamp on shit he had nothing to do with.

From the GOP's health care replacement to the already low unemployment rate under Barack Obama, the sitting POTUS has no qualms about taking credit where credit isn't due.

That self-involvement extended to Colin Kaepernick's current unemployment status when the president spoke at a rally on Monday night.

Trump was talking to the crowd in Louisville, Kentucky about the Republican health care overhaul and the nation's urban communities when, out of nowhere, he swerved into a completely unrelated topic on the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, saying:

Colin Kaepernick Plans To Stand During The National Anthem Next Season… Just As Soon As He Finds A Team To Play For!

Filed under: ZportzPolitikFootballNFLSocial Issues

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick is in for a lot of changes this year.

First, it was reported this week that the quarterback will opt out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers and become a free agent next week — and now we're hearing the athlete will also end his national anthem protest in the upcoming season.

As you may have seen, the 29-year-old chose to kneel during the national anthem before every game in the 2016 season — something he hoped would shed light on the oppression of black people and people of color in the United States.

ESPN reports the footballer believes his message was delivered and he wants to recognize the positive change that is already happening.

And while the work is far from done, Kaepernick appreciates the support he received from his fellow athletes, and the national conversation that was started by his controversial protest.

Now, he just needs to find a team to stand with.

Thoughts??? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Trevor Noah RIPS Conservative Commentator Over 'The Right Way' For Black People To Protest! Watch The Heated Daily Show Interview!

no title

With protests and vociferous social movements still going strong in the wake of the most divisive election in modern history, many might be wondering: why can't we all just get along?

On Wednesday night, The Daily Show proved two ends of the political spectrum could have a civilized discussion without biting each other's heads off.

However, that didn't stop Trevor Noah from hurling a few barbs at conservative commentator Tomi Lahren in their contentious, but very enlightening interview!

For those who don't know, Lahren has gained notoriety for her angry, right wing rants against Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media on Glenn Beck's online network.

In a wide ranging chat about the current sociopolitical climate, the two went head-to-head discussing race (Tomi insisted she doesn't "see color"), Donald Trump, and the Black Lives Matter movement — which Lahren obnoxiously compared to the Ku Klux Klan!

But when Lauren explained she didn't believe Colin Kaepernick was protesting "the right way" by kneeling during the national anthem, the Comedy Central host asked his opponent for an alternative suggestion, musing:

#GrammysSoWhite?

While Frank Ocean released two of arguably the best albums of the year, don't expect him to walk away from the 2017 Grammy Awards with many trophies…

As you may already know, the Blonde and Endless singer intentionally missed the CBS event's September 30 cutoff date — and now he's explaining his decision to follow in Jada Pinkett Smith's Oscar boycott footsteps!

Speaking to The New York Times on Tuesday, Frank admitted that while he acknowledges the Recording Academy's good qualities, he simply could not justify supporting their inconsistencies when it comes to recognizing artists of color.

In fact, he even compared his own Grammys boycott to Colin Kaeperneck's iconic National Anthem protests, saying:

Way to help send us back to 1949, Colin…

Prior to Tuesday, Colin Kaepernick was easily seen as the most progressive player in the entire NFL — but unfortunately, that all changed on election night.

Despite championing the Black Lives Matter movement for months, the San Francisco '49ers quarterback dropped the ball when it came to electing Hillary Clinton to the Presidency this week… because we're hearing he didn't vote at all!

Apparently, the football phenom was so disenfranchised with both candidates that he elected not to enact his Constitutional right to vote — and now Donald Trump is our President.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday, Colin defended his decision to ride the pine during the biggest moment in modern American history, saying:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg slammed Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest pretty hard, but the sports star is firing right back at the Supreme Court Justice!

On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback opened up to reporters about the political figure's criticism of his demonstration, and he wasn't afraid to call the Notorious RBG OUT!

The athlete admitted he was upset that the 83-year-old condemned his peaceful protest, saying:

"It is disappointing to hear a Supreme Court justice call a protest against injustices and oppression 'stupid, dumb' in reference to players doing that."

In fact, the NFL player explained that the New York native's comments completely avoid the actual issues of racism and police brutality in our country, adding:
