It stands to reason that Pence was strategic about choosing this particular game to attend.

The "First Take" host then claimed that he believes Trump is doing this to get back at the National Football League community that didn't welcome him back when he tried to become an owner of a team. After leaving the game, he released a statement that said that he and President Trump would not condone any event that shows disrespect to the Flag, National Anthem, or soldiers. Pence said he "will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem". Reid said that he saw Vice President Mike Pence's decision to come to the game and leave immediately following the national anthem a "P.R. stunt".

Members of the media following Pence noted that they were told Pence might leave the game early before it started though.

In the latest escalation of America's culture wars, USA vice president Mike Pence walked out of a National Football League (NFL) game in Indianapolis, Indiana on Sunday after almost two dozen players kneeled in protest during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Earlier, Trump had asked sports fans to never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country and demanded that the NFL should change policy. "He's fired. He's fired, '" Trump said.

President Donald Trump tweeted on the matter, saying Pence was following his suggestion. The national anthem protests have been a storyline all season. Pence posted a selfie on Twitter before the game. The act is created to press for equality and tackle what Reid says is "systemic oppression".
