Stephen A. Smith calls Colin Kaepernick a 'flaming hypocrite' for not voting

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has made his feelings about both presidential candidates known (he called them both “proven liars”), so it shouldn’t come as a total shock to find out he didn’t vote in Tuesday’s election.

But ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith went off on the activist/quarterback on Wendesday’s First Take:

“As far as I’m concerned, Colin Kaepernick is absolutely irrelevant. I don’t want to see him again, I don’t want hear from him again, I don’t want to hear a [darn] word about anything he has to say about our nation … He comes across as a flaming hypocrite. …

“After all this noise that you made, even though you didn’t intended to do so, by offending our military service men and women, and pointing out about how you wanted to bring attention to racial injustices and beyond in this country, to turn around and not even take your behind to the polls to vote for a particular candidate, it is shameful! Absolutely shameful!”

Smith ended on this: “For him not to vote, as far as I’m concerned, everything he said meant absolutely nothing.”

The Jaguars (1-9) are one win ahead of the Jets in the standings, but also have a weaker strength of schedule than the Jets. If the Jets were to stun the Miami Dolphins this week and the Jaguars were to lose, Jacksonville would overtake the Jets as the worst team in the league.
