Colin Kaepernick is on his way to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History. According to USA TODAY Sports, San Francisco 49ers consultant and sociologist Harry Edwards donated some of the quarterback’s items to the museum after it opened last year. “I said, ‘Don’t wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,’ ” he told USA TODAY. “‘Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He’s this generation’s Ali.’ ” The items won’t be on display any time soon, but are slated to make their debut within the next one to two years.

Big Lies

Trump met with Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia this weekend at the Riyahd Summit, during which he urged them to “drive out” terrorists. “Terrorism has spread all across the world. But the path to peace begins right here, on this ancient soil, in this sacred land,” he said. “A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists. Drive them out! Drive them out of your places of worship, drive them out of your communities, drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this earth.” At one point in his speech, Trump also referred to Islam as “one of the world’s great faiths”—which is interesting, considering he was singing a completely different tune throughout his campaign, but who’s keeping receipts, right?

A group of Notre Dame graduates walked out of their commencement ceremony in protest of Vice President Mike Pence’s speech on Sunday. “The protest action was planned ahead of the ceremony,” reports CNN, “with activist group We Stand For saying Pence’s policies as vice president and as former Indiana governor targeted marginalized people on the basis of their religion, skin color or sexual orientation.” And while most people expressed pride in the students standing up for what they believed in, Tomi Lahren didn’t, and felt it necessary to put in her two cents. As if anyone cares. “Snowflakes think this kind of crap will fly in the real world?” she tweeted. “Good luck holding a job, kids!”

But wait. Didn’t she get… fired?

Big Facts

There will be no charges brought against the Columbus officer responsible for the shooting death of 13-year-old Tyre King, reports 10 TV, because “the grand jury found the shooting to be justified.” King was shot while running from officers reportedly investigating an armed robbery last fall. “Anytime a child dies it is a tragic event, and this time is no different,” the Columbus City Council said in a statement. “The Columbus City Council members pray for all those who are involved and, as always, will work hard to do our parts to support and create initiatives that build trust with our police and reduces violence in Columbus.” Autopsy results reveal King suffered from gunshot wounds in the head and torso.
