Trump hated it ... but, Colin Kaepernick had nothing but love for Kenny Stills and other NFL players who demonstrated during the national anthem on Thursday night.
Stills -- along with his Miami Dolphins teammate, Albert Wilson -- took a knee before their preseason game against the Bucs on Thursday night. Kaep was watching and approved.
"My brother [Kenny Stills] continued his protest of systemic oppression tonight by taking a knee," Kaep wrote.
"Albert Wilson joined him in protest. Stay strong brothers!"
Kaep added this note about Stills -- "[He] was awarded the Miami Dolphins’ community service awards the last two years. He participates in a number of youth organizations and was a team captain last year."
As we reported, Donald Trump hated the protest -- and railed against the players on Twitter, calling the league to suspend them.
