GOP Congressman to Colin Kaepernick after arrest of NYC bomber: ‘You’re welcome’

A Republican congressman offered 49ers second-tier quarterback Colin Kaepernick some much-needed perspective.

Soon after police engaged in a shootout and eventually apprehended New York bomber and terrorist, Ahmad Khan, Rep. Lee Zeldin took to Twitter and took a swipe at Kaepernick.

This wasn’t the first time the New York lawmaker went after Kaepernick for his refusal to stand for America’s national anthem. In August, Zeldin also offered the defiant ball player some perspective.

It obviously hasn’t gotten through to Kaepernick but at least, Zeldin seems eternally grateful, because it turns out, he would know about sacrifice. Zeldin served as an Army Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne and still serves as a Major in the Reserves.

H/T: The Hill.
