Colin Kaepernick’s mother has nothing but pride for her son’s form of protest, despite President Donald Trump’s critique of it.

At a rally in Alabama Friday night Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel, as Kaepernick did throughout the 2016 season, during the anthem and fans should consider walking out in protest

“Get that son of a b—- off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!” Trump said. 

Replying to a tweet about a news article about Trump’s comments, Kaepernick’s mother Teresa Kaepernick said: “Guess that makes me a proud b—-!”

She was not the only one who spoke out against Trump. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, along with the NFL players’ union, said Trump’s comments are “divisive.”

Many of the NFL players also joined in criticizing Trump.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted: “The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed. If you do not Condemn this divisive Rhetoric you are Condoning it!!”

Kaepernick’s sideline protests became a national topic last year when said that he will not stand up “to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
