In one tweet McHenry said, “JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims. 37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right…” She even spoke with Fox News about the issue she has and never mentioned that Kaepernick has also raised money and gave away checks.


McHenry said, “ See that magazine cover and I think if we want to go with a football player, Houston Texans’ JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief. Why is he not the citizen of the year. There’s a huge disconnect with reality and the NFL right now and they need to figure it out.” She didn’t stop their she also felt the need to say that Roger Goodell should of put a rule in place about the players kneeling. Kaepernicks GQ cover has hit stands already and is titled, “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced.”
