In a move that seemed a little too well orchestrated, VP Mike Pence walked out of a Colts/49ers game after some players kneeled during the anthem. After leaving the stadium, Pence released a statement that began, “President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.” (They weren’t disrespecting those things. They were disrespecting innocent black people being shot.)

+ Cowboys owner Jerry Jones now says he will bench any player who disrespects flag.
