Standing Up for Your Principles Is NEVER a PR Stunt - VP Pence Leaves Colts-49ers Game!

Michael Conroy/Associated Press

Vice President Mike Pence, along with his wife, Karen, attended the Indianapolis Colts vs. San Francisco 49er's game in Indianapolis yesterday - Sunday, Oct. 8. If you're not familiar with the origins of the Kneelgate or Anthemgate controversy, with NFL players choosing to kneel during the National Anthem when it's played before games - the 49er's are the team most associated with the protest movement. 

However, when a number of the 49er's chose to kneel during the Anthem, immediately afterward got up and left! On Twitter VP Pence posted...

“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.”

There have been many follow-up comments, from both VP Pence and President Donald Trump, as well as the White House, regarding the matter. One of the 49er's made the comment in an after-game TV interview that he felt Pence's actions were nothing more than a "PR stunt."

President Trump Tweeted afterward that he had asked VP Pence to leave the game - should there be a protest kneeling by any of the players - and I applaud them for taking a stand. My take on this is that standing up for your principles is NEVER a PR stunt!
