Mike Pence awarded Donkey of the Day for spending over $200K on a football game he walked out on

Just when you thought all the talk about players NFL players kneeling during the national anthem was dying down a bit, Mike Pence was so offended over players kneeling during a Indianapolis Colts game; he left. Pence later tweeted, “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”. President Trump later stated that he directed Pence to leave if any kneeling took place.

The most outrages part about this story is that Pence spent over $200 thousand dollars to attend this game, including the flight there. Don’t think it seemed to bother any of the protesters that he left. What was Pence trying to prove by leaving?
