NFL Hall of Fame legend Mike Ditka doesn’t mince words.
During an interview on WABC Radio’s “Bernie & Sid Show” Thursday, the former Chicago Bears coach didn’t hold back his disdain for both former President Barack Obama and San Francisco 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
They’re both losers. But President Donald Trump is a different story altogether.
Ditka was asked about sports journalists who try to get New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to turn his back on his friend Donald Trump.
“I think these people are — can I say this? — that they’re a**holes,” Ditka said.
He added that those protesting the new president should give Trump a chance and let him do his job.
“If he can screw it up half as much as Obama, I’ll be surprised,” Ditka said.
Later into the interview, Ditka gave this assessment of Obama.
“No leadership at all — none zero,” he said of Obama, reiterating a statement he made last year that he considered him the “worst president ever.”
Ditka also addressed Kaepernick, who’s claim to fame is taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem.
“(H)e’d be a complete unknown without the game of football… And not to respect that, you’ve got to be a pretty unintelligent person, I would think.”
Ditka’s last year of coaching was in 1999 with the New Orleans Saints. But had he been coaching today and one of his players took a knee, that player would be done.
“He doesn’t play for me ever again,” Ditka said.
