OJ Simpson thinks Colin Kaepernick made a mistake and you should respect the flag


OJ Simpson, the former football star who evaded a murder conviction by exposing police racism, thinks Colin Kaepernick's protest of police racism on the football field was a mistake:
I think Colin made a mistake. I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag."

"I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK. I don't disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn't be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be."


"When he did it the first time I thought, 'Well, you took a gamble, and I give you credit.' But it was him continuing to do it where he made the biggest mistake. I'm a firm believer of doing what you think is right, but I would always stand for the flag."

He says Trump used to be one of his golfing buddies:
"The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun."

"Somebody asked me if I'd have voted for him ... Probably not, but I only know two of my friends I'd vote to be president. Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president. That has no bearing on it, you know?"
