Trevor Noah Exposes The 'Real' Reason For Colin Kaepernick's Protest

"Colin Kaepernick could be the Muhammad Ali of this generation -- except for the achievements and the talents and stuff."

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick says his national anthem demonstration is meant to protest the way America treats people of color, but Trevor Noah sees a potentially devious side benefit to it.

On Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” Noah suggested that kneeling during the national anthem could open the door for other “protests.”

“This is a great excuse,” Noah said. “If he gets sacked or intercepted [and people say] ‘Kaepernick, you suck!’ he could be like, ‘No, this was also a protest. How can I move the ball forward if my people are held back?’”  

To be fair, Noah admires Kaepernick’s courage in speaking out about racial injustice in the face of criticism. 

“Colin Kaepernick could be the Muhammad Ali of this generation ― except for the achievements and the talents and stuff,” Noah said.
