Bernie Sanders’ Wife Designates Kaepernick as Hero of “Inspired Respect”

San Francisco 49ers football players awarded their controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick the coveted Len Eshmont Award for his “inspirational, courageous play.” It’s noteworthy that the 49ers had only one win out of sixteen games played this entire season.

The wife of Senator Bernie Sanders, Jane O’Meara Sanders, joined in solidarity with Kaepernick’s teammates regarding the award’s bestowal to the National Anthem protester. According to O’Meara Sanders, Kaepernick “inspired respect” and “focused our thoughts on a need for change” through his dignified stances and rhetoric.

The tweet congratulating Kaepernick on the award, as well as reactions to O’Meara Sanders’ proclamation, are seen below:
