Vice President Mike Pence let everyone know without question where he stands on the 'kneegate' movement when he stood up and gave a big ole peace out before walking away. 

 


Vice President Pence, a military father, exited the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday with pride after some players knelt during the National Anthem, saying he did not want to "dignify" the event.

Shortly after he took his leave the VP posted a lengthy and vocal statement on Twitter explaining his actions and reasons :



President Donald Trump wasted no time in taking credit for Mr. Pence's decision.


Later, Pence followed up his fevered outpouring with a moment that captured his and his wife's firm stance on the debate. 


The swarm of press that followed the second in command were told they had to wait outside the stadium. As soon as he emerged, far earlier than expected social media erupted.




Giphy

The onslaught didn't stop there, especially once players began to weigh in. 





Clearly this topic isn't going to be cooling down anytime soon. One would hope the VP and his boss could find a way to bring everyone together on this issue. 

How throwing a fit and storming out is better than listening and trying to empathize to find a solution is baffling. 

Gipghy

Just a thought?
