Former NFL champion Martellus Bennett isn’t here for Kanye West pitching Colin Kaepernick and Donald Trump meetings. This week, the ex-New England Patriots star weighed-in on Yeezy trying to put two extremely opposing sides in the same room.
Again, Marty was against the idea — telling Kanye, “Don’t try to drag other people in to make yourself feel like you’re correct.” “Don’t try to bring public figures who fight for black rights to help you and the foolishness that you’re doing.” But, what about the spirit of reaching across the aisle? “You wanna reach across the aisle to grab a bear? Or should you reach across the aisle to grab some greatness?” “You don’t reach across the aisle to pick up sh*t. I hate picking up sh*t with my doggy bags.” (TMZ)
On Thursday, Hot 97 radio veteran Ebro Darden shut down Ye’s idea of having Kaepernick and Trump meeting.
reaching out to Colin Kaepernick. I would like you to speak with the president to tell him your experience directly. Let’s have a dialogue not a diatribe.

A few days ago, West raised eyebrows after donning a Trump-inspired Make America Great Again hat and Colin Kaepernick-bearing sweater.
Recently, Trump ripped sports apparel giant Nike for using Kaepernick in its Just Do It campaign.
Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!
