WASHINGTON — When Vice President Pence walked out of Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts game after some 49ers players knelt during the national anthem, Pence said he was standing up for members of the military.
“I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag, or our national anthem,” Pence tweeted Sunday.
Speaking last month at a political rally in Alabama after President Trump said NFL players who kneel should be fired, Pence emphasized even more his view that standing is about supporting service members.
“It’s about respect for the flag, respect for the country,” Pence said. “And most importantly, it’s about respect for all those who fought and died to defend it.”
