Moments ago, President Donald J. Trump slammed Marshawn Lynch for sitting during the U.S. anthem before an NFL game in Mexico
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2017
Lynch was actually standing during the first few bars of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Sunday before taking a seat. And while he stood for the Mexican anthem, he was not necessarily at attention.
In September Trump said players kneeling or sitting during the anthem should be fired which prompted much backlash across the league.
Lynch, who has remained seated during the playing of the national anthem since coming out of retirement this season, has not said why he sits. He wore a T-Shirt that read “Everybody vs. Trump” prior to the Raiders’ game against the Broncos in Denver on Oct. 1

Gilbert Douglas Couillard Soon all the rest of professional sports will be in self destruct mode and then there will be nothing left. I don't watch any of it anymore.
Hank Adkins Oh he ok with the corrupt Mexican police! Maybe he should go live in Mexico so he can pay ever time he steps out of his house for protection!
Larry Mangas You know President Trump, some people don't have the brain God gave a goose, possibly Lynch is one of them.
Tim Hancock Under Obummer these kind on non Americans were imported from around the world. But they did not come to boost america. They came to tear America down.
Wesley Andrew Hightower You people are the new snowflakes. Talk about the Federal govt micromanaging people. Why not have Big Brother tell us what to do every minute of every day?
Marie Elena Pisula What about our president when he disrespects women. Should someone say the same about him! Trump is already upset that the NFL played a game in a place where he wants a wall built and they arent paying for it as he once said they would. Now, a football player stands for their anthem and not his own. That is really getting under t rumps skin.
Charles Kimbrough The NFL seems blind to the money it's losing. Let it go under and these "players" flip burgers for a living
Gilbert Douglas Couillard The NFL is in such disarray right now it's only a matter of time before it completely falls apart. I don't even watch it anymore. It used to be a way to look forward to the weekend but forget it now. Why does everything have to be about politics?
Tanner Cyr These guys are just way overpaid f…. idiots that are lucky they can play a game because they have no other skills. If you have ever heard Lynch speak….he can barely do that.
Ray Guerra Just take away the Federal Tax free Bonds for all Construction of NFL Stadiums. If the NFL can pay their commissioner $50 Million a year, they don't need the tax break.
