Donald Trump Jr. Slams Colin Kaepernick as ‘Nonessential Employee’ in Facebook Meme

Colin Kaepernick

*Donald Trump Jr. took to his Facebook account and shared a photo of former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick kneeling during a game, with the caption, “The most nonessential employee in American History.”

Trump Jr. captioned it, “Hard to argue…” to his followers on Twitter.

Non-essential workers are those that do not directly affect the government’s operations, which cannot function without essential workers like Congressmen.

Essential workers are also risking their lives keeping America afloat during the coronavirus pandemic, such as public safety, health care, restaurant and grocery workers. 

Trump’s meme was originally posted by Benny Johnson, described as “an American political columnist, currently serving as chief creative officer at conservative nonprofit Turning Point USA.”

One follower of Trump Jr.’s Facebook page responded to the post by noting, “Well I [don’t] know Congress is appearing pretty non essential right now – where are they? Supermarket workers, truckers, refinery workers, nurses, doctors, fast food workers and President all present and accounted for – where are they????”

In related news, a fake SportsCenter account claiming Kaepernick had signed a one-year deal with the Jets worth $9 million has motivated Kap to reach out to the Jets, along with some other teams, according to TMZ Sports.

The Jets have yet to show any interest in the 32-year-old this offseason.

Kaepernick hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2016 when he was with the 49ers. His career was put on pause after he pissed off the dominant society for protesting racial and social injustice during the national anthem, which drew heavy criticism from President Donald Trump.
