On Aug. 12, Marshawn Lynch took a seat during the national anthem before his first preseason game with the Raiders. More than a month later, on Sept. 22, Donald Trump criticized players who have protested racial injustice by not standing for the anthem. On Sunday, Lynch responded. 

Beast Mode arrived at the Raiders' game against the Broncos wearing an "Everybody vs. Trump" shirt.

Then, before kickoff, Lynch continued to sit during the anthem. That wasn't the unexpected part. The unexpected part was the group of Raiders staffers who appeared to try to hide Lynch by surrounding him.

And that made it difficult for photographers to get a shot of Lynch.

As of 5:45 p.m. ET on Sunday, Trump has not responded to Lynch's shirt. At this point, it'd come as a huge surprise if Trump didn't have anything to say considering how often he's been tweeting about the NFL and the league-wide unity demonstrations in the wake of his comments

On Sept. 22, Trump said that players who protest racial inequality by refusing to stand for the anthem should be fired.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now," Trump said. "Out. He's fired. He's fired."

"You know, some owner is going to do that, he's going to say, 'That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired,'" Trump continued. "And that owner, they don't know it -- they're friends of mine, many of them -- they don't know it, they'll be the most popular person for a week, they'll be the most popular person in this country, because that's a total disrespect of our heritage, that's a total disrespect of everything that we stand for."

During last Sunday's Week 3 slate of games, the response was widespread -- members of the Dolphins wore shirts in support of Colin Kaepernick, some teams didn't even come out for the national anthem, and many teams linked arms during the anthem. 

Of course, Trump responded on Twitter, even calling for an NFL to require players to stand for the anthem.

Of note:

So far on Sunday, three members of the Dolphins kneeled during the national anthem in London, the Ravens kneeled before the anthem and were booed by their fans,  and Cam Newton celebrated a touchdown against the Patriots by raising his fist.
