Oakland Raider Marshawn Lynch came under Twitter attack from President Trump when he sat during the national anthem at a game in Mexico on Sunday. Now, Lynch is getting support from everyone from his fellow Raiders to the Oakland mayor for his decision. Monday night the entire Raiders offensive line pooled their own money to hand out Thanksgiving turkeys to area families in need. “I’m so happy to be able to give back, because I’m in a position to give back so I like to give back,” said offensive tackle Donald Penn. Penn was giving back and also giving a piece of his mind, calling out President Trump for urging the NFL to suspend Marshawn Lynch. “There’s so many other things he could worry about besides Marshawn,” said Penn. “He’s so jealous.” Pictures show Lynch sitting for the U.S. national anthem during Sunday’s game against the Patriots in Mexico City and standing for the Mexican anthem.
