    He did what was right. Problem is you can't ever admit Trump is correct.

    What about all the patriotic fans that stayed. Is Pence better than they?

    Seems Pence should have stood with all the fans that did stand and stayed. Instead he ran out.

    When things get tough, the chicken-hearts run.

    Did Pence pay for the tickets? Of course he did not.

    Trump sent PENCE to IND for Colts game for a STUNT--"walk out when they took a knee"

    How many HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars did we just spend? Pence was in CALIF. Trump told him to go to the COLTS game and leave 'when' they knelt. I'll assume they knew it was a when, not an if. Trump announced it. I have no idea if Pence did.

    Anyone think it is related to MR. 32%'s approval rating from yesterday??

    Pence leaves NFL game after players kneel during anthem

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a National Football League game on Sunday in his home state of Indiana after some players knelt during the national anthem, a form of demonstration that began last year as a symbolic protest about police violence against racial minorities.

    Pence was attending a game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers. Some players from the 49ers kneeled during the Star Spangled Banner, while some Colts wore black T-shirts with the words “We Will” on the front and “Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity” on the back. The players stood with their arms locked during the anthem, according to media reports.

    “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 said in a statement issued by the White House.

    President Donald Trump has criticized players sharply for the protests and pressed the NFL to ban them. He said in a tweet on Sunday that he asked Pence to leave the stadium “if any player kneeled, disrespecting our country.” He said he was proud of Pence and his wife, Karen.

    Pence's loyalty to Trump = Disloyalty to the concept of democracy.

    Pence motorcade leaves Indianapolis Colts game



    The plan had been for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the Indianapolis Colts game at which Peyton Manning’s number is to be retired, a gala celebration of the former Colts quarterback’s contributions to Pence’s home state.

    The former governor of Indiana and his wife, wearing a Manning No. 18 jersey, left Lucas Oil Stadium after the national anthem, following instructions from President Trump after a number of San Francisco 49ers players, as they usually do, took a knee during the anthem.

    “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled,” Trump posted on Twitter. “I am proud of him and @secondLady Karen.”

    Pence said he chose to leave because “we should rally around our Flag.”

    “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. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us,” he said in a statement...
