Vice President Mike Pence, and Mother Pence—and do not get me started on the creepiness of a man calling his wife ‘Mother—left a football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers yesterday because they were shocked, shocked I say, that some players knelt during the National Anthem.
Um, except players have been kneeling during the anthem for over a year so, really, how shocked as he? Or was it just another publicity stunt by the Reality Show President’s team?
See, I know the players were gonna kneel, and you know it, too, and so did Lying Hypocritical Bigot Mike Pence because he traveled to the game with a press pool, but told them to wait outside because, and this is a quote from a Pence staffer, “there may be an early departure from the game.”
What? You mean it was planned the whole time? Of course it was and the Tiny Fisted Tyrant in the White House even Tweeted later that he
It was all planned, the whole thing, from start to finish, but the most galling part of it? From a White House under scrutiny because many in the administration are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on travel, We The People foot the bill for a _____ Publicity Stunt.
Draining the swamp? Draining the taxpayers bank accounts for some stupid attempt to denounce black athletes as being un-American—which is not the truth—is more like it.
The Take A Knee movement started because of the violence, and murder, of black Americans by white police officers; it is not a protest of the flag, or a song, or the military; all that is just another rightwingnut lie perpetuated by the Bigot-In-Chief because brown-skinned people are protesting. And since he can’t hurl paper towels at them ...
Pence, for his part, did as ordered and then Tweeted out his faux outrage at the protest:
It was all stupid and calculated and glaringly obvious, but the stupid continued with one of the best displays of GOP idiocy, Mike Pence Asshatery, and _____ Fuckery, was when, prior to his staged stomp-off, Mike Pence tweeted a photo of he and Mother, AKA Karen Pence “at the game.” But, as happens with social media, Twitterers noted something odd about the photo ... like it was a picture of Mike and Mother Pence at a game back in November 2014:
Seriously? He went to the game based on a lie because he was never going to stay; he and Mother Pence spent thousands in taxpayers dollars for his stunt hauling the press and the Secret Service for a 5 minute protest of a protest, and then he can’t be bothered to Tweet out a real photo?
Is it just easier to lie for this White House? Or, more likely, are they doing this because they have yet to accomplish one single promise _____ made to his base, so they're trying to appease them by creating a larger racial divide in this country because, and think on this, Mike Pence stormed out of a football game because black players took a knee but he said not one word about the white supremacists being back in Charlottesville over the weekend.
