VP Pence Stands and Leaves Football Game Offended By Players Who Took a Knee
Ordered by Trump to Leave if Anyone takes a Knee the VP does as instructed.
Vice President Pence was so offended by kneeling professional football players that he left a game Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers in Indianapolis.
“I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence, a former governor of Indiana, said in a statement.
“While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem,” the statement opposing the protest continued. “I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem.”
But first, the moment was commemorated with a photo of himself and second lady Karen Pence while they stood, hand over hearts, for the anthem.
