Trump Throws Pence Under The Bus. Tweet Proves NFL Walkout Was A Planned Publicity Stunt
Earlier Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence decided to walk out of an NFL game between Colts and San Francisco 49ers after some of the players decided to silently protest and knelt during the national anthem.
According to Pence, his decision was done in the moment.
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.

But it seems that the walkout was a planned publicity stunt, according to the President of the United States himself who tweeted:

Of course, Pence did receive criticism from people on Twitter.
Today, VP Pence attended an NFL game as part of a preplanned stunt to walk out after players kneeled during the national anthem.

Pence left the Colts game because there was a protest. Problem is, his racist boss is why they're protesting. He ignores that fact.

I'm glad taxpayers footed the bill for Pence's tickets and protection at the game just so he can pander to knucledraggers with that stunt
