Does she think we’re stupid? MSNBC’s Joy Reid brings God into the anthem protest in the weirdest way

Powered by Topple

What if all those athletes kneeling during the national anthem were not actually protesting all this time?

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid presented her take on the controversy that began in August when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick chose not to stand during the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Kaepernick never did mention God in defending his actions, making a statement instead about  “bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Reid, however, had her own interpretation of Kaepernick’s move and a distinct idea of how people have “worshipped” the “random” national anthem.

Others on Twitter did not buy what Reid was selling.

Reid attempted to fire back but still saw kneeling being only about God and prayer.
