Vice President Pence Leaves Game After 49ers Players Kneel During Anthem

Vice President Pence Leaves Game After 49ers Players Kneel During Anthem

It's the latest shot traded between the Trump administration and NFL players who have mimicked former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest by not standing for the national anthem.

The former IN governor flew IN so he could watch Peyton Manning's jersey retirement ceremony on Sunday, but Pence didn't stick around long.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence acknowledges the crowd as he walks onstage to deliver a speech on the third day of the Republican Convention, on July 20, 2016.

Trump took to Twitter saying he was proud of Pence and his wife for leaving the game.

Thaler was responsible for explaining how human weaknesses such as lack of self-control and social preferences affect markets. He co-wrote the global best-seller " Nudge ", which uses behavioural economics to tackle many of society's major problems.

However, anyone who has been following the protests of NFL players knows that it's not about disrespecting the Flag, soldiers, or the National Anthem.

At an event for Luther Strange in Huntsville, Ala. last month, Trump said that he thought owners would let go of players who knelt during the national anthem.

"Our players are actively involved in our community throughout the year, and are committed to using their platform to make a difference and support numerous charitable causes", said Irsay in a statement.

"This is PR", Reid said.

That led some to point out that the White House appeared to have anticipated Pence's early departure from the game. The national anthem protests have been a storyline all season. "He knew that we were probably going to do to it again". "A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts".

President Donald Trump says Vice President Mike Pence's attendance at an National Football League game at the weekend was "long planned".

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said after the game that he had no reaction to Pence's decision to leave Lucas Oil Stadium on Manning's special day.

But they left early after several players kneeled during the national anthem. More than a dozen 49ers players knelt during the anthem, with their hands over their hearts, according to ESPN.
