On Sunday VP Mike Pence and his wife attended the celebration of Colts all-time great Peyton Manning. Before the game during the national anthem about two dozen players for the two teams took a knee.

Not long ago President Trump attacked the NFL for kneeling and disrespecting our flag, military and country in a now famous press conference.  It should come as no surprise that VP Mike Pence walked out of the stadium shortly after the protest. Pence took to Twitter to express his displeasure for the entitled NFL crybabies.

“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 said on Twitter.

Previously Pence had expressed excitement to go see the Colts play.

Later on Pence posted a statement regarding the issue:

“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.”

“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 added. “I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and National Anthem.”

The Washington Post reported that the actions of Pence were planned in advance with President Trump.

While many people were happy with what Pence did, it obviously triggered many people on the left. Check it out.

It's funny how the left has been crying all week about the 1st Amendment. Now that VP Mike Pence exercises his Constitutional rights they are suddenly against it.
