The National Football League is proceeding with an enduring decrease in group of onlookers, with its fourth seven day stretch of recreations having the littlest gathering of people on an end of the week when a few moderates required a blacklist since some of its players utilized the national hymn to challenge police treatment of minorities.
VP Pence traveled to Indianapolis today to go to a Colts diversion. At the point when a couple of players sat and bowed amid the national song of devotion, he speedily left.
“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,” Pence wrote on Twitter. President Trump also weighed in, confirming the fact that he asked the VP to leave the game (and, in true Trump fashion, taking credit for the idea.)

The walkout is profoundly suspected to be a foreordained trick. CNN reports that pool journalists were told “there might be an early takeoff from the diversion” and made a request to stay outside the football stadium.
