Donald Trump Jr. has used the Kyrie Irving COVID vaccine saga to lash out at Colin Kaepernick
With Kyrie Irving adamant on his stance against the COVID-19 vaccine, the Brooklyn Nets have decided to safeguard their interests. The team has decided to keep Irving on the sidelines till he decides to get jabbed with the team’s GM revealing that Irving would not play a part in either the preseason or regular NBA 2022 season till he took his shots.
While many consider Irving’s rigidness to be down to his anti-vaxx stance, reports have come to the light stating the player is not against the vaccination but the mandates in the country. Irving is said to be distraught with people losing their jobs after not getting vaccinated owing to the stringent guidelines states have enforced.
Donald Trump Jr. Proud Of Kyrie Irving
His position at the moment could see him potentially lose out on millions, something Donald Trump Jr. is extremely proud of. Ensuing the Nets’ decision to rule out Irving for the foreseeable future, Donald Trump’s son took to Twitter to laud Irving’s decision.
Kyrie just sacrificed more than Kaepernick ever did! https://t.co/bMNryRnIlI

However, he did more than just hailing Irving as he lased out at Colin Kaepernick as well. Trump’s son talked about how Irving’s actions meant more than anything Colin had ever done in his life.
Colin had put his NFL career on the line after becoming the first player in the league to kneel during the national anthem. He had not received a contract from any team ensuing his actions, something which clearly doesn’t impress Donald Trump Jr.
Irving’s situation meanwhile continues to be a topsy-turvy one with their rumours of the player contemplating retirement as well.
