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.
