Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy was candid in his criticism of President Donald Trump’s recent comments regarding the protests of social injustice by NFL players.

Naturally, McCoy was one of many players that participated in the league-wide national anthem protests during Week 3.

The Pro Bowler was captured on video stretching during the national anthem prior to the Bills’ game against the Denver Broncos, as his own personal form of protest.

On Friday, Trump made headlines during an appearance in Alabama in which he commented on the league-wide national anthem protests by saying that NFL owners should respond to the player protests with the phrase “get that son of a bitch off the field.”

Wouldn’t you love one of these NFL owners… when someone disrespects our flag say, “Get that son of a bitch off the field, right now, out, he’s fired.”

The President doubled down on Saturday amid another battle he waged with former NBA MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, claiming he withdrew his invitation to visit the White House, which Curry and the team have stated they have no interest in previously.

So far, we have seen statements from commissioner Roger Goodell, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and the Cleveland Browns’ Dee and Jimmy Haslam, among others.
