Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has taken up the fight against Nike, after they yanked a patriotic sneaker off store shelves because former NFL player Colin Kaepernick complained that the Betsy Ross flag on the sneakers would be offensive to some people.
McConnell said on Tuesday that he hopes another company will start selling shoes with the American flag on it, vowing, “I will make the first order.”
“If we’re in a political environment where the American flag has become controversial to Americans, I think we’ve got a problem,” McConnell said.
McConnell doubled down on Thursday, posting a Betsy Ross flag on his Twitter account, and writing, “Happy Fourth of July!”
