Bill Maher - Stars who refuse to support Colin KaepernickBill Maher

It's political commentator Bill Maher's job to comment on divisive issues, so it wasn't a shock when he weigh in on the national anthem protest. On Maher's HBO show, Real Time, he supported Kaepernick by saying, in part, "Actually what people died and fought for was his right to do that." Then, the following week, Maher threw a curveball at the situation with this tweet: "[Kaepernick] is an idiot. I support his protest, but stick to what u know: kneeling and interceptions, and then look up 'false equivalency.'"

Maher later defended the tweet on his show, saying that he doesn't take issue with Kaepernick's protest, but rather, the player's remarks about race in reference to the 2016 presidential race. Like the general rule of family get togethers, around here we feel it's best to leave politics out of the discussion as much as possible.
