George Foreman disses Kaepernick and Durant, praises Trump

George Foreman grilled Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant about their lack of patriotism.

The world champion heavy weight boxer and famous grill maker slammed Kaepernick and Durant for not being patriotic on the "Offended America" podcast and also called Donald Trump a great president.

"They [Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant] haven't been brought up with people who were patriotic to even point them in the right direction," Foreman stated, referencing Kaepernick's protests against the National Anthem and Durant's refusal to visit the White House.

"Some of them are trying to make a point, it's like look at me, I'm trying to say something. You gotta respect that, too," he continued.

Foreman also explained how many people died to allow for the privilege of being able to say the National Anthem.

When asked about Durant's recent comments about not visiting the White House, he told a story about how he doesn't have a photo with Richard Nixon, because he was "ignorant" and wouldn't support to the candidate over his plans to end the Job Corps.
