The former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is backing another embattled U.S. athlete … this time coming to the defense of Colin Kaepernick!!
Remember, the ex-Iranian prez swooped in to defend Serena Williams when French Open officials told her she couldn’t wear a custom-made Nike catsuit during their tournament anymore.
Now … Ahmadinejad is weighing in on the Kaepernick drama — saying it’s a shame the ex-49ers superstar ain’t in the league anymore.
“The NFL season will start this week,” Mahmoud said from his official Twitter account.
“Unfortunately once again @Kaepernick7 is not on a NFL roster. Even though he is one of the best Quarterbacks in the league.”
So, yeah … apparently, M.A. is keeping up with the NFL in his spare time?
And wait, there’s more …
Ahmadinejad also echoed LeBron James, who recently said sports are supposed to bring people together, not divide.
While LeBron mentioned Trump by name, the Iranian ex-prez didn’t.
“The philosophy and spirit of sports is bringing people together not causing more conflicts. Politics must support the spirit of sports not destroy it.”
