Over the weekend Trump has once again, through his divisive rhetoric, attempted to cause a disruptance to the unity of the American people. At a rally in Alabama, President Trump referred to Colin Kaepernick, and others that had used their platform to speak out against police brutality, as “sons of bitches.”

Athletes and other public figures alike responded to his statement appalled, as he apparently forgot what the First Amendment was, the best response came from Kaepernick’s mother, Teresa.
Guess that makes me a proud bitch!

DAMN, DONALD, YOU NEED SOME ICE FOR THAT BURN?
Of course, the internet applauded her response.
We're proud, too, Mrs. Kaepernick. You raised a principled and brave son! Thank you!

You should be proud! @Kaepernick7 embodies the America I believe in. Thank you for teaching your son values.

I hope my son turns out with some portion of the bravery and integrity of yours.
