Rep. Duncan Hunter: Colin Kaepernick Should Expect Boos in San Diego Game

Rep. Duncan Hunter noted San Diego's large military community.

Noting the large military community in San Diego, Hunter said Kaepernick should expect to be roundly booed.

“A city like San Diego is too patriotic,” said Hunter, adding that he believes Kaepernick would be out of a job if he played for the Chargers.

“I don’t think we’d have a player like him, frankly, I think he’d be booed out or the owners would be forced to not accept someone like him,” he said.

Hunter, a Trump supporter, said that while he supports open displays of opposition to Kaepernick's action, he doesn't foresee a boycott of 49ers games.

“I think you can combat what Kaepernick’s doing with a show of force on the other side,” said Hunter. “That’s saying, ‘Hey, we respect the flag because it stands for something that’s constant, and that’s the sacrifices and what the American military has done for this country.’”

Reaction to Kaepernick's protest has been mixed. Some members of the military are using the hashtag #VeteransForKaepernick on social media to show their support for the quarterback's right to protest.
