Trump questions tax breaks for NFL: 'Change tax law' (Video)

Trump calls for tax changes for NFL following national anthem protests

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", Kaepernick tweeted with an attribution to Winston Churchill.

A spokesperson for CBS sports referred CNNMoney to those tweets.

While all this is in line with other recent reporting about Kaepernick, La Canfora appeared to break some news towards the end of the segment.

After La Canfora backed off his earlier report, Kaepernick tweeted: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", attributing the quote to Winston Churchill even though some scholars have said the quote was not said by the former British prime minister.

Shortly after that feature aired on NFL Today, Know Your Rights Camp, a youth campaign headed by Kaepernick, tweeted out a statement saying reports about the out-of-work QB's anthem posture are "completely false", and that "he has never discussed this with anyone". The columnist said he made the assertion based on previous reports, which he did not identify. However, I cant say if they are true or not.

"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations", La Canfora said in another tweet.

"Standing for Anthem wasn't something that I spoke to Colin about Saturday. Our chat primarily about his will to play".

However, after reports exploded quoting the CBS account, La Canfora took to Twitter to reveal that he had not spoken to Kaepernick about the question. Donald Trump has attacked the players and called on the National Football League to fire them.

Kaepernick also retweeted several people - including his girlfriend Nessa Diab and prominent Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson - denying the claim following La Canfora's comments. "Haha. nice going hero." tweeted Robert O'Neill, the former Navy SEAL who was involved in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
