VP Mike Pence leaves NFL game after NFL's biggest losers disrespect flag again

President Trump tweeted yesterday, "I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen." VP Mike Pence left the Colts / 49ers game after the now 0-5 pieces of garbage from San Francisco in the failing state of California disrespected the flag again.

We were proud to stand - with all our - for our soldiers, our flag, and our National Anthem 🇺🇸

Pence tweeted: " I left today's Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience...now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us...While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem."

OH, and remember when Donald Trump said Jerry Jones would get Cowboys players to stand? He did. “If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play,” Jones told reporters after yesterday's game.

“Understand? We will not,” he said. “If we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play. Period. We’re going to respect the flag and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have.”

“We cannot in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” Jones said. “I know the vice president did leave, because in his opinion the teams were. We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. Just so we’re clear.”

The longtime NFL owner and general manager continued, “I’m saying our vice president, if in his opinion, there’s disrespect of the flag then he should express himself however he wants to say. He’s got rights, too. He felt that not standing for the flag is disrespectful. I do, too. The league in my mind should absolutely take the rules we’ve got on the books and make sure that we do not give the perception that we’re disrespecting the flag.”

“We as a team are very much on the page together,” he said. “We made our expression. I’m very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances will the Dallas Cowboys — I don’t care what happens — under no circumstances will we as an organization, coaches, players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag. Period.”

The NFLPA released a statement later in the evening in response to Jones’ comments, defending the protests and NFL players’ constitutional rights to kneel.

“We should not stifle these discussions and cannot allow our rights to become subservient to the very opinions our Constitution protects,” the statement said. “That is what makes us the land of the free and home of the brave.”

Because the morons who run the NFLPA think the Constitution applies to private employers. Idiots.

Boycott these NFL sponsors until all teams stand.
