I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.

Serious question.

Is kneeling a sign of disrespect in your culture? Or is it a sign of deep, profound, respect, and reverence?

I would have thought that -- reverence, yes sir.

But these days, symbols mean what you CLAIM they mean.  So if they're kneeling to Protest, then a Protest it is.  Apparently.

How much did we all just pay to have Pence fly to Indiana and have the Secret Service sweep an entire NFL stadium just so he could stand there for 10 minutes and leave in a naked appeal to racists?

Too much.

> The pool of journalists accompanying the vice president was not allowed into the stadium and was asked to stay in their vans. They were told by a staffer that "there may be an early departure from the game," but were not given any further details.

Some criticized Trump and Pence for the walkout, with Hawaii Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz tweeting, "Wait. This was orchestrated to make a point? That's not an inexpensive thing to do."

Just another stunt.

If he wants to do political stunts he should do them on his own dime. It's an insult to the American people that we have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for him and Secret Service to be flown across the country so he can put on a dog and pony snub.
