Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade invited former professional basketball player, Brock Gillespie, on the show to discuss the new Nike ad which stars former QB Colin Kaepernick.
“Is Kaepernick’s so-called sacrifice worthy of such celebration?” Kilmeade asks.
It’s a hard “no” for Gillespie, who argues that the NFL quarterback — who took the Niners to the Super Bowl in 2013 and the NFC Championship the following year — “didn’t sacrifice anything.”
“His career was over,” says Gillespie, who adds that Nike “mis-assessed middle America” with its campaign.
“If they want to make an ad about sacrificing, why don’t they go all the way?” he says. “If this is Nike, put Jesus on there.”
