During his Sunday rally in Greeley, CO, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump explained why NFL ratings are down this season, blaming the election and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his decision to protest injustice during the playing of the national anthem.
“The NFL is way down in their ratings. And you know why? Two reasons.

And the other reason is [Colin] Kaepernick,” Trump said to the tune of booing.
