So Donald Trump Can Criticize America, But Colin Kaepernick Can't?

A political cartoon by Matt Davies.

There is not a level playing field, apparently, when it comes to criticizing America.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being attacked for refusing to stand for the national anthem until his country stops oppressing people of color.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump tells cheering crowds that he will “Make America Great Again,” a phrase that implies the country has gone seriously downhill.

Do you see some double standards at work here? Cartoonist Matt Davies does, as he demonstrates in the cartoon above.
