Marshawn Lynch decided to skip his opportunity to meet Obama in the White House according to his mother Delisa.
“He just said he didn’t want to go,” Lynch’s mom, Delisa, told the Seattle Times. “No particular reason was given to me. He just said he didn’t want to go.’’
Obama was sad that Lynch was present, saying
“I am sorry that Marshawn’s not here because I just want to say how much I admire his approach to the press,” Obama said during remarks about the team. “I wanted to get some tips from him. It’s about the action.”
When Lynch’s mother Delisa was asked if Marshawn watched it and he response was classic.
“I’m sure he did,” she said. “I texted him and told him that Obama gave him some mad props and he texted back ‘laughing out loud.’’’
