Clay Travis on US Olympian turning back on flag: Athletes 'looking for their Colin Kaepernick payday'

GWEN BERRY TURNS BACK TO US FLAG DURING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT OLYMPIC TRIALS, SAYS SHE WAS ‘SET-UP’

CLAY TRAVIS: Since when is winning a medal while representing your country and having the national anthem play a ‘setup’ in any magnitude at all? I mean, this is all ridiculous. Nobody knows this woman. And I think what we’re going to see a lot of, unfortunately, as the Olympic trials continue and as we move into the Olympics next month, is everybody is looking for their Colin Kaepernick payday. Right? No one has ever been paid more for saying America is awful than Colin Kaepernick, whose career as an athlete ended but he became an icon on the far left for saying America is a tremendously awful place. 

And I think there are a lot of athletes with envy for Colin Kaepernick becoming a martyr in many ways based on not his athletic talents, but based on his response to the national anthem. And I expect that we’re going to see a lot of copycats such as this woman, there will probably be many more. Unfortunately, I don’t think that the Olympics are going to be the unifying spirit that they usually are because there’s a lot of money to be made by saying America stinks.
