    Pence leaves Colts game after protest during anthem

    Pence leaves Colts game after protest during anthem

    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

    I'm not sure if the administration is really so deluded that they think they can win this fight, or if they have so many forest fires that they figure their best bet is to keep this arson fire burning as hot as possible so people don't pay attention to the problems they can't solve. 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.

    He was ordered by Trump to leave if there was kneeing. LOL, I bet Pence can't wait for that impeachment of Trump.

    There's much talk that he is just salivating at the thought to taking over his job.

    Pence didn't have to leave. He chose to leave because of disgraceful actions by the players.

    Do you want to take that foot out of your mouth? Trump says he asked Pence to leave if there was kneeling. If you are the Vice President and the President "asks" you to do something thats' pretty much an order. Next time your boss asks you for something disobey it, see what treatment you get in return. LOL.

    Donald Trump's tweet 39 minutes ago,


    I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @secondLady Karen.

    Trump ASKED. He didn't "ORDER" as was claimed. Therefore, it was a lie.
