Kicking off Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate hosted by CNN, presidential candidate Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) refused to hold his hand over his heart during the playing of our national anthem. He was the only candidate on stage to do so.

Tim Ryan can't be bothered to put his hand over his heart for the Star-Spangled Banner? #DemDebate

Rep. Tim Ryan didn’t put his hand over his heart during the national anthem. I guess he’s appealing to the Kaepernick wing of the Democratic Party.

Why is no one kneeling in solidarity with Kaepernick?

Democrats have largely supported national anthem protest by famous athletes, such as former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who claims he took a knee to protest rampant racism and police brutality. However, the ex-NFL’er recently worked to have Nike cancel a pair of Revolution Era, Betsy Ross-style American flag shoes, revealing that he actually has an issue with the flag.
