MSNBC: “On Sunday, VP Mike Pence left Sunday’s 49ers-Colts game in Indianapolis after players kneeled during the National Anthem. The move, which is being criticized, was said to be pre-planned.”

Yahoo Sports: Republican President Donald Trump “took credit for the departure of Pence and his wife from the stadium in a later tweet, saying, ‘I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.'”

“Pence, who flew to Indianapolis from Las Vegas and was scheduled to head back west to California, was criticized in other quarters as well.”

“‘After all the scandals involving unnecessarily expensive travel by cabinet secretaries, how much taxpayer money was wasted on this stunt?’ US congressman Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said in a tweet.”
