“On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence was in Las Vegas honoring the victims of the largest mass shooting in modern American history. Less than 24 hours later, he was in Indiana walking out of the Indianapolis Colts game against the San Francisco 49ers after several of the players failed to stand 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 by way of explanation.
President Donald Trump, never one to cede to the spotlight, quickly took to Twitter to claim credit for Pence`s walk-out. `I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen,` tweeted Trump. He continued to inject himself into the moment Monday morning, tweeting that Pence received `great praise` for leaving the game.”
Vice President Mike Pence flew on Air Force Two from Las Vegas to Indianapolis to attend the game between the Colts and the 49ers.
After attending the game for the sole purpose of engaging in his publicity stunt, he flew to California — the cynical ploy cost taxpayers almost $300,000.
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the kneeling during the National Anthem protest a year ago, and ever since some 49ers always kneel during the anthem.
Pence knew there was a 100% certainty that a few 49ers would kneel during the playing of the National Anthem, his sole purpose for attending the football game was to engage in his publicity stunt to distract attention from Rex Tillerson calling the president a fuc*ing moron and Republican Sen. Bob Corker warning that Trump may lead us to World War III.
The only thing that the evangelical Christian Pence accomplished is prove that he is willing to sell his soul to protect the image of the satanic Donald Trump.
Time for revolution?
