Donald Trump Wants Marshawn Lynch Suspended For Kneeling During National Anthem

  • Look Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch has sweet Mexican-flag themed cleats

Lynch's son, Marshawn, was called out by President Donald Trump on Twitter Monday for sitting during the US national anthem and standing for Mexico's prior to the Oakland Raiders' game against the New England Patriots. "Football is a powerful platform -here's the charitable work we did in Mexico City #NFLproud".

Pictures show Lynch sitting for the USA national anthem during Sunday's game against the Patriots in Mexico City and standing for the Mexican anthem.

Trump has repeatedly gone after NFL players who kneel during the national anthem, saying the league's owners should fire players who take a knee.

Mr. Trump was quick to blast Lynch on Twitter, calling it "great disrespect!" "Attendance and ratings way down", Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Del Rio later closed her Twitter account after she was flooded with criticism.

"I'm pretty sure Marshawn just laughed it off", said Penn.




"I said, 'So you understand how I feel".

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the anthem last season in protest of racial injustice and police brutality.

In a conversation with Conan O'Brien, Lynch said, "My take on it is shit has to start somewhere".

One thing Mr. Lynch has made clear is that he's not a Trump fan: He wore an "Everybody vs. Trump" T-shirt before the October 1 game, shortly after the president suggested team owners fire players who refuse to stand for the anthem.

"Was going on big dog", Peters tweeted, "I know we got a lot that needs to be talk about how about we set up a (sit) down with you, me, @MoneyLynch and more and we talk about some (stuff)".
