Mike Pence leaves National Football League game after players kneel during anthem

Goodbye: AIM to Log Off Forever

"I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem", wrote Pence.

Pence tweeted his decision, saying he would "not dignify any event that disrespects" the flag.

The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the most consistent teams in the protest, with players taking a knee going back to previous year in Kaepernick's original protest, so critics noted that Mike Pence would have known that there would be protests during the national anthem even before going to the game.

President Trump chimed in on the matter via Twitter, writing "I asked [Vice President Pence] to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country". Colts players stood arm-in-arm.

Vice President Mike Pence praised the heroic response by police and the resolve of the American people at a prayer service in Las Vegas, while federal agents hauled away belongings left behind by terrified concertgoers trying to escape raining bullets from a gunman who was shooting from his high-rise hotel suite.

The photo the vice president tweeted showed him wearing a Colts polo shirt. After having players kneel last week, both the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills all stood for the anthem before their games.

Pence previously tweeted a picture of himself at the game and said he was excited to watch the ceremony honoring Peyton Manning, who had a statue unveiled outside Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday.

The protests started when Colin Kaepernick sat down for the anthem before a game in August 2016.

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on Sunday to attend a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, before headlining another fundraiser for local congressional representatives on Monday in Newport Beach. We spoke at length about numerous issues that face our community, including systemic oppression against people of color, police brutality and the criminal justice system.

Most players at N.F.L. games have returned to standing during the anthem.

Meanwhile, Kaepernick is still in pursuit of a team in the National Football League willing to take him on. Since then, numerous other players have protested in similar fashion.
