Vice President Mike Pence Takes a Stand Against NFL Players who Kneel During National Anthem

The Vice President and Second Lady Karen Pence took a stand against NFL players who continue to disrespect the National Anthem and the American Flag.

Pence spoke out on Sunday about why he and Second Lady Karen left the football game between the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game, the same day it 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, Fox News reported.

“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.

President Trump on Sunday said he asked Vice President Mike Pence to leave the Colts football game if any players knelt for the national anthem Sunday and said he was “proud of him” and the second lady.

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.

49ers’ Eric Reid spoke out about VP Mike Pence’s departure at Colts game saying they are not disrespecting the flag – if that were the case, they would stand and find another time to protest. They did not need to pick the National Anthem as their symbol of protest.
