New York Rep. Lee Zeldin (R) on Monday took a swipe at National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick after authorities took custody of the Chelsea bombing suspect.
"You are welcome Colin Kaepernick," Zeldin wrote in a tweet after authorities captured Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, after a shootout with police in Linden, N.J.
Suspect in custody. You are welcome Colin Kaepernick.— Lee Zeldin (@leezeldin) September 19, 2016
Zeldin tweeted last month that Kaepernick "should think about the service members risking their lives to protect his freedom to be both rich and unpatriotic in NFL."
"While there are still tragic and inexcusable incidents of injustice, racism and bigotry in this country of more than 300 million people, we cannot allow influential members of our society to undermine the monumental progress that has been made in our nation’s relatively short history," Williams wrote.
