President Trump Says 'NFL Should Suspend' Marshawn Lynch For Standing During The Mexican Anthem, But Sitting During The US Anthem

And everyone is going Beast Mode on Trump for it.

Another day, another athlete being attacked on Twitter by President Trump.

A day after the celebrity-in-chief tweeted, "I should have left them in jail," regarding the UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting in China, Trump woke up with a different athlete on his mind Monday morning — Marshawn Lynch.

When Trump learned that the Oakland Raiders' running back stood for the Mexican national anthem, but sat during the U.S. national anthem before his team lost to the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday, Trump tweeted at 6:25 a.m. ET today that the "NFL should suspend him for remainder of season."

Is the president aware that Lynch sat during the American national anthem for a majority of games over the course of his 10-year career?

Well, whatever the case may be, people saw Trump's tweet and went "Beast Mode" on the president with these no-chill reactions.

  • others implored trump to resign as president to pursue a career in sports broadcasting since he wants to talk about sports so much

    Plenty of people would sign up for that.

  • Is this the latest Trump spin-cycle tweet to distract us?

    Well, Mr. President?

    What a divisive mind in the Oval Office.
