VP Pence walks out of game as NFL players kneel: ‘I don’t think it’s too much to ask …’


Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an NFL game on Sunday when players decided to take a knee for the National Anthem.

He took to social media to explain his decision after he left the Indianapolis Colts VS San Francisco 49ers game.

“I left today’s [Indianapolis] Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” he wrote on Twitter.

As the former governor of Indiana, Vice President Pence was planning to be on hand when the Colts honored one of the greatest stars in the team’s history, Peyton Manning.

“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 wrote.

“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,” he continued. “I stand with @POTUS Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem.”
