Michael Moore wears a 49ers hat during Women’s March on Washington

Jan 21, 2017 at 1:44 PM--


Filmmaker Michael Moore gave a speech at the Women's March on Washington saying, "we have to take over the Democratic Party." He did that while wearing a San Francisco 49ers hat.

Donald Trump's election as President of the United States has been very controversial, which is evident by the numerous marches of protest taking place across the country on Saturday.

In November, Moore showed up unannounced at Trump Tower in New York to arrange an interview with the then-President-elect. He was wearing a 49ers hat that day as well. Moore has been vocal about his support of quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest of the national anthem and his wearing of a 49ers hat has been an apparent nod to that.

"Colin Kaepernick did the MOST American of things: Stand up - or sit down - for what u believe in," Moore tweeted out in August. Of course, as most NFL fans know by now, Kaepernick kneeled during pre-game national anthems this past season. It was his way to protest what he calls unjust actions by this country.

Kaepernick was not a fan of Trump or Hilary Clinton and spoke about the election back in November. "To me, it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates," Kaepernick said. "Both are proven liars, and it almost seems like they're trying to debate who is less racist, and at this point, I was talking to one of my friends who goes, 'You have to pick the lesser of two evils, but in the end, it's still evil.'"

The feeling was mutual from Trump. "I think it's personally not a good thing," Trump said of Kaepernick's protest in August during a radio interview on Seattle's KIRO. "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."

There are times when a winning team running an unnecessary play with the game in hand would be something that falls under the category of poor sportsmanship, but it turns out the Seattle Seahawks had a good reason to do so against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Seahawks had the lead and the ball with 22 seconds to play in their 26-23 win over the 49ers, which is a situation where teams would usually kneel on the ball to run out the clock. But they decided instead to run a short five-yard pass play to wide receiver David Moore, which left some observers confused. After the game, it was revealed the Seahawks ran the play for Moore so he could get a performance bonus of $100,000. Moore's contract stipulates that he gets the bonus for 35 receptions on the
