Trump thought it'd be a good idea to tweet about NFL players and as usual, it caused some serious drama.
In this case, Donald Trump thought he'd spend his time attacking Marshawn Lynch for standing for the Mexican National Anthem and not the U.S. one.
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.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2017
The president went so far as to call for Lynch's suspension. Why the President of the United States would rather meddle in the dealings of a sports league instead of politics isn't just beyond me, it's beyond Lynch's mother, too.
Which is why she had to respond to the president for coming after her son with a little bit of history that might really, really hurt Trump's feelings.
Like the fact that he was allegedly unsuccessful in his attempts at buying into the NFL.
A fact that people brought up on Twitter and went in extreme detail, after Lynch's mom brought it up.
remember when the NFL turned down Trump in 2014 in his effort to buy the Buffalo Bills..yeah..this is the result of him being butthurt— mgorosh (@sportz5176) November 20, 2017
Trump owned a football team USFL NJ Generals, he bankrupted team AND entire league. NFL hates Trump & rightfully would never let him buy in.— Brooklyn Mind (@brklynmind) November 20, 2017
Even military vets got in on the action.
As a vet I find it more disrespectful to demand patriotism. I don't understand the fuss except that Trump said so. But I think he is jealous of the NFL because they wouldn't allow him to buy a team— Reni Bitting (@rendog1977) November 20, 2017
Others pointed out the integrity of Marshawn Lynch.
People attack Marshawn Lynch because they want to see him break, they want to ruin the positivity he has in his community, they want to throw dirt on his name, they can't understand the love for a person who is real to himself, they dont want @MoneyLynch to be a success story. pic.twitter.com/xuA8JWmDE1— Ant (@AntHellaRaw) November 20, 2017
And how he gives back to his community.

Others think they might have a new presidential team in 2020.
But I heard that The Rock might have called dibs on that ticket...
