Vice President Mike Pence leaves Indianapolis Colts game amid flag protests

US Vice President Mike Pence has left a National Football League (NFL) game in IN as some players kneeled during the national anthem, a symbolic protest about police violence against racial minorities.

Vice President Mike Pence attended an Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday - but left abruptly after the actions of a few players.

Trump can have the credit for Pence leaving as long as he also takes credit for being the worst president in history.

Trump tweeted Sunday he had asked Pence to leave the stadium early if any such protests occurred and that he was "proud" of Pence and his wife for doing so.

NU made big plays, but in the end this team was schooled on how a nationally competitive program goes about its business. Even a penalty-prone Badger team had Nebraska playing from behind seemingly from the opening drive .

After Pence walked out of the game, the White House issued a statement from Pence in which he said Americans should rally around the flag. Colts players wore black t-shirts reading "We Will" on the front and "Stand for equality, justice, unity, respect, dialogue, opportunity" on the back.

Ex-49er Colin Kaepernick started the practice previous year by sitting out the anthem in protest at police brutality against black people.

He asked reporters if they knew when the last time Pence attended a football game.

Smith awarded President Trump the win for having "successfully hijacked" the national anthem protests in the NFL. After more than 20 San Francisco players took a knee for the song, he left.

He said Paddock lived a " secret life " and 'meticulously planned on the worst domestic attack in United States history'. As of Thursday morning, 59 people, including Paddock, had died from the shooting with hundreds more injured.

Pence wrote in a tweet that he "will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem" and attached a statement for why he left. "With that being said, he tweeted out a three-year-old photo of him at a Colts game". "As media pool has been made aware, a staffer told pool that VPOTUS may depart the game early".

Meanwhile, former Michigan Democratic Rep. John Dingell ribbed Pence on Twitter.

Eric Reid, a 49ers safety who knelt alongside Kaepernick last season, reemphasized earlier this year and after Sunday's game that kneeling for the anthem is not created to disrespect the military or the flag. "So I will say that every time you interview me".
