    and you're just fine with our VP walking out on the people he represents engaging in peaceful protest? Freedom of Speech and the right to address grievances against our government, mean nothing to this WH. They seem to think Trump is some kind of King and we're all his subjects. Who aren't allowed to exercise our rights without his approval. You know what that makes him? A traitor to his oath of office and our Constitution. You good with that?

    Yep. This was a planned stunt. Reporters in the VP press pool had been advised that Pence would be leaving before the anthem began.

    that's just the thing. Trump supporters seem just fine with behaving like his subjects. And they seem to get butt hurt if everyone else doesn't as well.

    @johnflesh is right. This was a staged, deliberate stunt, arranged from the top. They just didn't think about how dumb it would make them look.
    Does Trump ever stop to think how dumb his actions and words make him look?

    Why is it disgraceful? They have a right to do what they are doing, or are you opposed to this right? You probably are, which makes you as anti American as you believe them to be.

    Washington (CNN)Vice President Mike Pence left a football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday after some players knelt during the National Anthem, saying he did not want to "dignify" the event.

    "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

    Good!
    An excellent reason to continue these protests!




    Way to bring more attention to the kneelers' cause.

    No thanks, I've had my say to correct the lies that liberals here spew. I'm not going to stick around for a pile on and have to defend myself against the coming personal attacks.

I'm leaning toward the latter, but Pence is also just stupid enough to buy into the former idea. It wasn't even his team that did it.
    Trump said he told Pence to leave. Monkey on a string.
