Moron in chief told pence to leave the game if anyone took a knee during the anthem.

I mean, who would have thought San Francisco would do that since they've been kneeling since LAST SEASON?

I'm sure the rubes at faux will fall all over how patriotic pence was.

He also tweeted a three year old picture from the stands.

Yet another waste of taxpayer money for another diversion from the russia investigation.

trump is still butt-hurt over NFL owners rejecting him,and preventing him from purchasing the Buffalo Bills in the 90s. all those who burn their season tickets, and whine because of players wanting to bring attention to people of color being targeted and murdered by police, are racist morons.

Ron - spot on with the facts.

One thing that this shows us is that the Moron In Chief has planning skills. Unfortunately he used them to waste taxpayer money & advance a cultural issue to divert from Russia & all the rest of his problems / failures. But when the guy is at 32% in the polls, desperation kicks in.

Pence got up off his knees, wiped the pussygrabber's dribble off his chin, and went and did as he was told like the good little religious fanatical hypocrite lap dog he is.

I wouldn't call them all "racist" but one thing for sure is many of our citizens take professional sports too seriously. To have the time and resources to support and watch sports teams for entertainment and/or escape, maybe things aren't so bad in the good ol' USA.

Fairly obvious I guess that Pence was only sent there to pull off this idiotic stunt.

For the record, I would have to say I lean towards the top statement, I live in Indiana! I work with these People, I live with these People, 1 or 2 of them are Friends!!?? But yes, a majority of the hard right winger Trump supporters are pretty much bigoted Folks of low intellect. Certainly, if the racist/moron shoe fits, wear it!

StratDal, do You also think, People expend way to much time and resources on going to the movies, I think People take movies way too seriously, I never go the the movies and rarely watch one at home, just not interested. Would You think driving 100 miles to see a concert to be a waste? Of course, top athletes are paid to much, just as top movie stars are, music, I don't know, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry and the like make millions, while real musicians struggle!.........I wandered a bit......Peace........joe

It cost taxpayers a lot more than $90,000. Air Force 2 costs around $43,000 per hour to fly. He flew 2.5 hours from Las Vegas to Indianapolis and then all the way back to Southern California after he left the game for a fundraiser. So Air Force 2 costs were over $200,000.. Note that the fundraiser in California was at 6 pm, so it was obvious he never had any intention to watch the game. Add in all the extra security and it cost well over a quarter million dollars.

Planning skills? Does it really take more planning & skill to order the VP in his home state to make a statement than to tweet an inflammatory response to anything that infuriates the insecure bully in the oval office?

You give him far more credit than he deserves.

What difference does it make if it is was pre planned or not?
I sure it was, but who cares. He has his feelings along with the administration and is entitled to them .


If Pence would have stayed nobody would be talking how much it cost the tax payers.
Stayed or not, it still cost money.
You think this is the first time a presidential administration is taking advantage of tax payer money?!?! Nothing new with the gov't fleecing the public
of money no matter what party is in office.

Thank you VP Pence for taking a stand with all the NFL fans who think this misguided protest disrespects America and those who served. This protest has carried on way too long and is alienating lots of fans.

You probably can't understand the motives, but they aren't about disrespecting America. Take a look at the bigger picture if you're capable of getting there.

Actually the planning skills was said tongue-in-cheek. I give him very little credit, as that is something that has to be earned. He hasn't earned much in 9 months.

its misguided, disrespectful, divisive, and no different than showing up to a MLK celebration and start waving a confederate flag claiming free speech.

Trump stages a cultural divide & tweets about the NFL players in Indiana yesterday, but ignores the white supremacists that once again marched in C'ville this past weekend.

The difference? MOTUS probably believes there were some "really fine people" marching in C'ville.

I wonder when kneeling became disrespectful. How many kneel before their wife when they ask to marry them. I was taught to kneel when we pray. I was taught to kneel when I approach the casket of a loved one. They have kneeling alters at cemeteries so when we pay "respect" to our lost loved one we have a comfortable place for our knees

When did Kneeling become disrespectful?...Kap was told by an ex-NFL Vet that kneeling was a sign of respect...

Have we all been lied to...fake news all our lives that anytime we wanted to show disrespect all we had to do was take a knee

So when the players take a knee after another on get hurt was that about taunting that hurt player...while they have their heads down and look like their praying???

I'm a bit confused...but then again we had enough idiots to vote in the MOTUS so I guess 6 really is 9

This has been covered for a year now and you still don't have a clue what it is about. HINT: It has nothing to do with the flag. The flag is a symbol, nothing more.

I ran in a 5 k last week and the anthem was performed before the start and the race organizers actually said anyone who kneels will be automatically dq'd. This is coming from good people who volunteer their time to the community and dont just spout off on the internet. this protest has morphed into something more than when Kap first started last season. Such strong opinions on both sides about the meaning and reasons for standing during the anthem. Its not about whether they have the right to do this or not . Everyone gets that. Does anyone know when will they stop kneeling? What would it take to make this happen? THis protest is so incoherent I doubt that anyone knows what the answer would be.

If you ignore behavior and stop feeding it attention, it will typically go away. It was barely a topic until Trump fanned the flames and players started protesting him instead. It had quieted down considerably since, but then Pence made a big silly show of himself at Trump's urging. Honestly, it's all silly and not worth anyone getting too upset about, on either side. Grown men filming themselves burning shirts that other grown men wear to work. And the Federal government is scheduling trips for their own protests?

Some people just need to check twitter every morning to find out what they are supposed to be outraged at that day.

Actually, as a symbolic gesture, it's pretty clear, and several players have quite clearly stated their reasons. Don't care about the details, huh?

Absolutely subject to interpretation and I'm sure we "understand the motives" perfectly. They are Imho, wrong.

Just place me in the group who believes the V.P was spot on. Thanks Mr. Pence!

How about these NFL brats taking this protest to a Police Dept of their organized choice?...Take a knee there, hold up signs, march, parade, whatever. Better yet, take it to a Military base when the caskets of the fallen are coming home, see where that gets you.

Leave the flag and the anthem out of it.

What does the military have to do with it? I haven't heard a single NFL player say a single word against the military.
