Obama: Kaepernick Has ‘Constitutional Right’ Not to Stand

Speaking from the G20 summit, President Obama said he believes 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is “exercising his constitutional right” to not stand during the National Anthem at NFL games. Kaepernick has drawn both ire and admiration for his display days ago in San Diego. Kaepernick has said he’ll continue to sit or kneel during the song until “significant change” is made in the fight against racial inequality.
