This was classic! Mike Pence and his wife walked out of an Indianapolis Colts game today, after numb between the ears NFL players took a knee.
Politico had this to say:
Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday shortly after several players on the opposing San Francisco 49ers kneeled in protest during the national anthem.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence wrote on Twitter on his official @VP account, hours after tweeting that he was looking forward to taking in a game with his wife, Karen Pence.
And of course the left paints conspiracy theories.
President Donald Trump later added that he personally asked the vice president and his wife to leave the game. “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The timing of the Pence departure and Trump’s follow-up tweet led some to suggest that the vice president’s departure was a preplanned stunt.
It’s just not wise to get into a p****** contest with folks who love their country and their National Anthem. Maybe they’ll learn that when their stadiums are empty.
