Colin Kaepernick's Girlfriend Nessa Diab Denies QB Will Stand for Anthem

Colin Kaepernick's Girlfriend Nessa Diab Denies QB Will Stand for Anthem

According to a report by Jason La Canfora on Sunday, Kaepernick has been living in NY and working out privately in New Jersey with the hope of signing with a team this season.

According to La Canfora, the quarterback is practicing every morning in New Jersey, while helping children in NY in the afternoons. "That is his existence". "He's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity".

The confusion started after Jason La Canfora talked about Kaepernick on the network's pregame show, "The NFL Today".

While all this is in line with other recent reporting about Kaepernick, La Canfora appeared to break some news towards the end of the segment.

After La Canfora backed off his earlier report, Kaepernick tweeted: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", attributing the quote to Winston Churchill even though some scholars have said the quote was not said by the former British prime minister.

Rhee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, with the content of almost 80 percent of them yet to be identified. Mr Kim responded with a rare statement, vowing to "tame the mentally deranged United States dotard with fire".

La Canfora attempted to clarifiy the situation via his own Twitter account.

Oh, and he also tossed out a little tidbit that Kaepernick will stand for the national anthem.

La Canfora tweeted later that he does not know what Kaepernick would do during the anthem. It's also worth noting that March 2017 was a long time ago.

Protesting the treatment of people of color by the police, Kaepernick began kneeling for the national anthem last season, a display that was met with both support and vitriol from the NFL community. But because our entire national discourse now revolves around Colin Kaepernick, this brief, clumsy moment has become the latest salvo in the American culture wars. La Canfora wrote after the report about Kaepernick standing spread like wildfire. All Kaepernick needs to do to make these folks happy is to stop existing, though even that might not be enough.
