How much did this PR stunt cost us?

VP Pence left the Colts-49ers Game when some of the 49ers took a knee during the national anthem.

So, after flying out to Indianapolis (on our dime), setting up the special security precautions of having the VP attend the game (on our dime) Pence gets up and walks out in an obvious staged event.

The problem is that the stage was paid for by our tax dollars.

Yep and according to him based on disrespect for the troops.

Except for John McCain. Or the Kahn family. Or what Mike Flynn did.

Colin Kaepernick was the QB for the 49ers and had been doing this since last season. The players on the 49ers have been consistently taking a knee during the anthem for more than a year. You can't tell me that Pence went to this game and then was shocked by what happened. He knew this was going to happen.

So he arranges to be there, at our expense, all for the express purpose of getting up and walking out before the game even begins.

Once again complete silence from the Trump crowd over this waste of taxpayer money. What a shock.

Pence is so 100% patriotic he left the game, but he's fine doing a fundraiser Monday for (among others) Putin-apologist Dana Rohrabacher?

Plus for someone so mad at people disrespecting our service members he sure is quiet about the ridicule Trump heaps on John McCain. Why hasn't Pence "walked out of" the Trump administration for the disrespect shown McCain?

RW hypocrisy shines through again.

If Biden had attended an event knowing that some RW Pastor with anti gay views was going to speak and then walked out when he was introduced the RW would be going on and on about the grandstanding and how divisive it was.

Pence does it and the RWers think it's wonderful.

Well, it’s not as if they have bigger issues like North Korea and a desperate Puerto Rico to concern themselves with. They will get around to nominating a Secretary of Homeland Security in due time. After all, Kelly only left that post a couple of months ago to become the Director of Adult Daycare in the White House. Using this Sunday as a rememberance of those Americans slaughtered in Las Vegas exactly a week ago today will just have to wait. The “effing moron” and his ventriloquist V.P. Doll have more pressing matters.

You expect the President to travel to sites of natural disaster. So you have made a ridiculous thread. If he did not go to Puerto Rico you would have made a thread about how terrible it was that he did not go there.
