NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Goes Full Beast Mode On 'Motherf**ker' Donald Trump

The Oakland Raiders running back pulled no punches with his criticism of the president on "Real Time with Bill Maher."

NFL player Marshawn Lynch brushed off President Donald Trump’s past criticism of him on Friday’s broadcast of “Real Time.”

“That motherfucker say a lot of shit,” the Oakland Raiders running back told host Bill Maher. “He called me unpatriotic but, I mean, you come to my neighborhood where I’m from and you’ll see me take the shirt off my back and give it to someone in need, what would you call that?”

Lynch, 32, drew ire from Trump in November 2017 after he sat during the national anthem before a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City.

The player, whose nickname is “Beast Mode,” then stood during the playing of the Mexican national anthem. 

Trump tweeted:

Lynch also donned a top with the words “Everybody vs. Trump” written across the chest the previous month:

Trump has previously called football players, who were inspired by former 49er Colin Kaepernick to take the knee during the national anthem before games in protest of systemic racial injustice and police brutality, “sons of bitches.”
