Journalist reveals who cost Hillary the election

Why did Hillary Clinton lose the election?

Was it a poor campaign? Did everyone hate her? Were fake news and Russian hackers at fault?

One journalist has pinpointed the answer and no one expected this to be the reason.

When San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting the national anthem because he thought America was a racist country, millions of Americans were outraged.

Some pundits even blamed Kaepernick for the decline in NFL ratings in 2016 (two polls backed them up).

But did the backlash against Kaepernick spread beyond sports?

Did it seep into politics?

Fox Sports 1 contributor Clay Travis thinks so.

He claims Kaepernick’s protest mobilized millions of Americans to vote against Hillary Clinton as a stand against left-wing social justice warriors.

The Smokeroom reports on Travis’ comments:

“Fox Sports pundit and Outkick the Coverage founder Clay Travis believes NFL free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is responsible for Donald Trump winning the election.

“The only thing that’s changed since Colin Kaepernick started his protest? Donald Trump got elected president. You know the ultimate irony? I don’t think Donald Trump would have gotten elected president if Colin Kaepernick hadn’t done his protest. You know the difference in this election? Seventy thousand votes. One football stadium in the states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. You flip 70,000 people, one football stadium in those three states, Hillary Clinton is the president of the United States. I think that Donald Trump won this election because of Colin Kaepernick’s protest. He cost the Democrats the 2016 election. He put Donald Trump into the White House,” Travis said in part Friday morning on his hit radio show “Outkick the Coverage.”

Trump blasted Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem. reports:

In a radio interview with conservative talk radio host Dori Monson, the Republican nominee for President took aim at Kaepernick for his actions, which Trump called ‘A terrible thing.’

“I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing. I think it’s a terrible thing, and you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try, it’s not gonna happen,” Trump told theThe Dori Monson Show on Monday, via BuzzFeed.

Hillary’s running mate Tim Kaine sounded a supportive note.

The Washington Times reports Kaine stating:

“You know, you’ve got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience,” Mr. Kaine told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos in a Thursday interview.

“I’d do it differently,” Mr. Kaine said. “I think if you really thought about issues and about this country, you’d do it differently, and when I heard him explain his rationale, it didn’t really make that much sense to me. But you’ve got to respect people’s ability to act according to their conscience, so I wouldn’t presume to tell him what to do.”

Many Americans saw Kaepernick’s protest as spitting in the face of the men and women who serve America in uniform.

They also saw Kaepernick kneeling as a slap in the face to their values of patriotism and love of country.

The left embraced Kaepernick and his protest and this caused Americans in Middle America to realize that the Democrat Party no longer reflected their culture or priorities.

And that – according to Travis – handed Trump the election.


  1. Beverley from BeverlyHELL-ARY is at the top of the list for all time record of lies, cheating, ignoring people who might have voted for her. She’s got a personality of a viper snake. She is medically unfit to be president, she’s lied so much and for so long doesn’t even remember what her lies are. She has (46) unsolved murders and suicides knocking at her door. They were enemies of hers and they were getting to close. Recently, 12 CIA people went to China and FOUND HELL-ARY’s missing e-mails. Well, they are now DEAD AND SHE IS MYSTERIOUSLY covering it up. LOOK at Obama and her’s Benghazi,uranium, plutonium, Iran, in dead of night dropped MILLIONS of $$$, illegal FISA, illegal Mueller Investigation and the list goes on. She has broken over 20 Federal Laws, Contempt of Congress, RACKETEERING. CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT A FEDERAL CRIME AND ETC. SHE HAS TO BE STOPPED LIKE OBAMA NEEDS TO SHUT HIS MOUTH OF LIES UP.

  2. The way I see it, America was tired of seeing a white house that kept apologizing to third world countries for absolutely nothing.
    America was tired of millions of people out of work for a government who gave up on the backbone of the country.
    America was tired of waiting for “change” to happen in the right direction, instead of excuses and lies.
    America was fed up with corruption and idiocy by letting in terrorists and killers.
    America elected Trump because we knew nothing was going to change the corruption if Hillary got elected.
    America was just tired…

  3. Donald Clark – In addition to what you said about Hillary losing the elect I woul like to add that the voters have had enough of her lies and questionable activities like helping the Russians buy American uranium for a “donation” to the Clinton Foundation in the thousands of dollars/rubles which she would be the ultimate beneficiary

  4. Long before the dumb player made himself look like an ass, Hillary was already on the way out. I knew from the moment she entered the race I would vote for her opponent, whoever it might be. Every time she opened her mouth her words rang false. The Clinton Body Count was also another nail in her coffin. Don’t credit some dumb-ass footballer with finishing her career; she finished it all by herself merely by being herself.

  5. Dan:That Punk Ass, isn’t sharp enough to flip burgers.
    Mainly because most people who have to flip burgers for a living
    know what it’s like to have to work for a living! and appre3ciate having a JOB.
    They realize that if some wealthy White / Black / Brown person didn’t own the Burger flipping business, they wouldn’t have that job!

    The smart ones realize by making their Pay go up to $15.00 and hour makes then a career burger flipper, not just a start in a great life for those willing to work for a living and NOT be a SLAVE to a $15.00 an hour Democratic way of life!

  6. There were several reasons why Hillary lost. The terrible thing about the election was that so many millions lacked wisdom and voted fro Hillary. Just think about that many wanted the right to kill babies, marry someone of the same sex, and support homosexuality.

  7. Mr. Clark…. you are spot on… I am not a religious zealot by any means… but, I came to the conclusion a while 1012that this last election was one of Good vs. Evil, so to speak….I still believe that…just have to hang on for the ride and see what happens.

  8. Hillary lost the election because she had lost complete touch with the “ordinary, regular” people of whom this Nation is composed. For years there has been no gains for lunchbucket workers and we are forced year after year to watch the elite take everything, her uncaring attitude did her no good, plus she has less personality than a fried egg sandwich and that was evident to everyone, sorry, not sorry.

  9. Kaperdick did us all a favor. Most people now realize the fake news people and the low life left wing scumbag reprobates do not share their values.

  10. People need to realize that Hillary lost because of trust issues, and that is what makes the difference.

  11. All kinds of reasons have been given as to why the Damocreat Candidate lost but the simple fact is that her character was basically the main reason.

  12. Did not watched his game. My friends made me aware of his actions and later saw him in the news. Have not watched a single NFL game since. However, Mr. Trump’s triumph over broom#1 and the Patriot’s win I’ll take any time. I did catch the replay of the Patriot’s tying the game in the Superbowl, plus the ensuing kickoff and 3 or 4 completed passes by the Patriots. The tying of the game, flip of the coin and pass completions. I guess I watched a totaled of 90 seconds of the Superbowl. When I listen to all the garbage about that gaa-gaa witched to appear at halftime, it was a total turn off.

  13. I don’t agree with that; it’s a little far-fetched. I am old. Almost seventy years ago I got into the news business as a copyboy; largest evening daily, and I started watching elections. Never, in all that time, did I see such a diverse mob of people flock to a candidate as the bunch that elected Trump. And this was, my children, against all odds.
    Hillary defeated herself. There was no reason in the world to invite more of the same misguided leadership to an already severely damaged country. It is not over yet. Mr. Trump will have to perform some miracles, and we are still under attack from the same evil force that corupts the media gave us Obama, then Hillary Clinton.
