The association, which sent a letter to the NFL team in response to Kaepernick's infamous protest gesture last week, is now saying that some of their officers might stop working the team's games on Sundays, because they don't like what the football player said.

Oh look, another bad opinion from Donald Trump.

The presidential candidate loves to talk about how America is failing — except when somebody who doesn't look like him brings it up, and that's just not acceptable to the real estate mogul.

If you remember from the weekend, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stirred controversy by refusing to stand for the National Anthem before an NFL game — and everybody seems to have an opinion on the matter.

Kaepernick, who noted that the treatment of minorities in this country was still unacceptable, felt as though his refusal to stand was a kind of protest, and boy, has it gotten the country talking.

Unfortunately, that includes Trump…

Speaking on Dori Monson's Seattle-based radio show on Monday, The Donald said this about Kaepernick's activism:

San Diego Padres Baseball Team Accused Of Homophobia After National Anthem Mistake Involving The City's Gay Men's Chorus

no title

Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.

The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.

The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.

At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.

The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.

Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.
