Donald Trump wants San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick to find a new country to live in. And it's all because of Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem.
“I think it’s—personally—not a good thing,” Trump said on radio's The Dori Monson Show on Monday, according to BuzzFeed. “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 won’t happen.”
It's funny how Trump has literally run his whole damn election on the idea that America isn't great. I mean, what else could his slogan "Make America great again" mean?
If America isn't great, why won't Trump take his own advice and pack his bags and leave? There are other places that he could make great with his presence so we wouldn't have to be bothered with him anymore.
Where could he go? I have a few suggestions.
Trump doesn't seem to like diversity, based on his immigration policy. And we all know how he feels about African Americans. I mean, it wasn't that long ago that Trump put a price on the heads of black teens who supposedly raped a Central Park jogger. Also, let's not forget about the time Trump refused to allow people of a certain hue to live in his apartments. I mean, the list goes on. And this is why Iceland is perfect. There's no diversity there. And, most importantly for Trump, no Mexicans.
It's cold in Antarctica. There aren't too many people there. And the ones who live there aren't black or Mexican, either. Trump and his wife, Melania, could keep each other warm while ice fishing with the locals.
You've probably never heard of the island of Tristan da Cunha. And don't let the word "island" fool you. It's not exactly a vacation spot. With a population of 266, it's a remote volcanic island in the south Atlantic Ocean. There's no airport, internet or mobile-phone coverage. At Tristan da Cunha, Trump would be out of sight and out of mind.
Usually when someone takes such a hard stance against something, it means they're secretly in love with it. As much as Trump hates on Mexico, something tells me he'd fit right in. Imagine Trump opening up a taco stand or even becoming friends with those he's labeled "criminals" in Mexico. I'm pretty sure Trump already has one foot in the door when it comes to bucking the system. We still haven't seen those tax returns.
As much as Trump wants Kaepernick to find another country, we're the ones who would probably benefit the most from Trump getting his ass out of Dodge—I mean, the U.S.
(Hell did not make this list. That would be mean.)
