JUST IN! VP Mike Pence And His Wife Karen Left Early After Several San Francisco 49ers Players Knelt For The Anthem.

Vice President Mike Pence has left the 49ers-Colts games after about a dozen San Francisco players took a knee.

The former Indiana governor flew in so he could watch Peyton Manning’s jersey retirement ceremony on Sunday. Manning will become the first Indianapolis-era player in Colts history to have his number retired and will also be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.
But Pence didn’t stick around long.
“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 tweeted.

Several 49ers players reportedly kneeled for the anthem on Sunday in Indianapolis.

Pence later tweeted, “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 added in another tweet.

This is the same day when a news emerged that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has said he’d stand for the national anthem if he can play in the NFL once more.

Pence is a noted sports fan and it’s second major event he’s attended in his home state since taking office in January. He also attended May’s Indianapolis 500, a family tradition.

Do you approve his decision to leave the game early?

I would have done the same. These malcontents are NOT going to rule this country. They don’t understand or appreciate the United States. By their actions…..speaks for what they are.

Yes, I stand with the VP. I did not watch any NFL (No Flag League) game today. I hope all Vets skip all games on Veterans Day weekend.

Absolutely VP Pence did the right thing.
And as for Kaepernick he’d better go looking for a new career.
Any team who gives him a second chance should be boycotted out of the competition imho.
