NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Calls Trump a ‘Motherf—er’ While Defending his own Patriotism
Marshawn Lynch, for those of you who are unaware, is a pro-bowl running back who played last season for the Oakland Raiders. He is known for his community outreach, and his fight against gentrification in African American communities.
Lynch, in 2017, came under attack by President Trump for sitting during the American National Anthem.
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.

Last night on HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’, Lynch sat down and talked about his ‘headfirst’ style of play in the NFL, his relationship with Colin Kaepernick, and his disliking of President Donald Trump, while defending his own patriotism which he has been criticized of lacking.
“Trump tweeted about you,” Maher told Lynch. “He said that you were, pretty much, unpatriotic because you were taking a knee. What is your answer to that?”
Marshawn Lynch responded, “You know, that motherfucker say a lot of shit. You call me unpatriotic, but you know [if] you come to my neighborhood where I’m from, you’ll see me take the shirt off my back and give it to someone in need. What would you call that?”
Maher than backed Lynch up, and talked about all of the social good that Lynch is doing with his own money. Lynch told Maher that he is buying up a bunch of property in order to help fight gentrification in black communities.
