Hi @VP Mike Pence, Nazis marched again yesterday in Virgina. Yeah, they killed a woman last time out & maimed folks. But those knees, right?— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) October 8, 2017
Mother-lover and U.S. vice president Mike Pence attended a Colt's game this Sunday and was so outraged at the players that took a knee TO PROTEST POLICE VIOLENCE AGAINST BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE that he decided to protest the protest and in a piece of political theatre walked out of the game.
As journalists were quick to point out it was all a bunch of nonsense showboating since Pence was unable to stay for the game anyway and had been booked to speak elsewhere. The little stunt is estimated to cost taxpayers at least $250, 000.
Trump himself quickly took to twitter to claim credit for the stunt. Celebs react:
When he said he grabs puss he disrespected women but you stuck around for that, huh old boy? https://t.co/Nzxr8e2795— Chelsea Peretti (@chelseaperetti) October 8, 2017

Pence leaving the stadium was pre-planned. It was a fund-raising gimmick.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) October 8, 2017
We're rather used to Pence doing everything for show. I suppose his marriage might also qualify. https://t.co/wIql2k5dul— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) October 8, 2017
