Bills running back LeSean McCoy stretches during the national anthem

0

LeSean McCoy did not hold back his feelings about President Trump's comments before Sunday's Bills game against the Denver Broncos, according to our affiliate WRGB.

McCoy stretched as the anthem was being sung while other teammates either stood or kneeled. The running back eventually walked towards the sidelines as the anthem finished.

On Saturday, McCoy sent a tweet out saying the President was an "a**hole."

The tweet was in response to President Trump rescinding the Golden State Warriors' White House invitation as well as the call for players who protest to be fired.

McCoy also retweeted ESPN host Jemele Hill who said that the President's comments would only incite more player protests. The tweet was a hint at the flurry of activity that occurred across NFL stadiums on Sunday.

The running back was also supportive of the Bills' owners' message regarding player protests and shared their tweet on his page. Terry and Kim Pegula said "our players have the freedom to express themselves in a respectful and thoughtful manner."

After the Bills' previous owner Ralph Wilson passed away in 2014, the Pegulas outbid Trump and bought the team. Trump sent a tweet in 2014 saying that the family overpaid for the team.
