Marshawn Lynch a target of Donald Trump broadside after sitting for anthem

Marshawn Lynch #24 of the Oakland Raiders looks on during a game against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium

Running back Marshawn Lynch from the Oakland Raiders sat during most of the "Star-Spangled Banner" at Sunday's, November 19, game against the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.

"I'm with Marshawn Lynch...stand up for the Mexican national anthem".

Just this morning, the President tweeted about the running back.

Mr Lynch's demonstration came during a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City.

Lynch and other players have sat or kneeled during the national anthem's playing as part of a movement begun by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Engaging NFL players in that way is a direct violation of their first amendment protections - a freedom of expression which, like it or not, the president is supposed to defend, according to the oath of office Trump took at his inauguration. That public rebuke angered professional players to the point that over 200 National Football League athletes knelt during the anthem that following Sunday in a united front against the president.

Snoop Dogg responded to Trump, praising LaVar Ball and Lynch and lambasting Trump in an expletive-laced video, TMZ reported Monday.

Said G.I. Raider: "How bout let's suspend you for handing the Raiders to Las Vegas?" At the rally, the president said any "SOB" who kneels during the anthem deserves to be taken off the field.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the controversy past year by first sitting then kneeling during the national anthem. This is also the second day in a row that Trump has harangued a black sports star.

On Sunday, Trump went after LaVar Ball, the father of one of the UCLA players who were detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting.

President Donald Trump is now feuding with LaVar Ball.
