Monday on “Fox & Friends,” former star NFL running back weighed in Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch choosing to stand for Mexico’s National Anthem while sitting for his own country’s, saying he is “insulted” because he thinks Lynch is “taking this as a joke.”
“I said earlier on, the commissioner should have handled this at the very beginning. He should have said, ‘Everyone stand, and at the end of the season, we’ll go to Washington and do something about it,'” Walker pointed out.
“I’ve been saying that guys should have been suspended at the beginning,” he continued. “I don’t care what people say. The National Anthem is the United States of America. That’s where you live. That’s where we get everything that we have, here in the United States. You never protest that.”
Walker later said people need to “respect the White House,” even if they disagree with President Trump.
“He is a good man. I think they need to give him a chance,” he stated.
