Franklin Graham praises Mike Pence for walking out of NFL game
Franklin Graham has praised Vice President Mike Pence for leaving the Indianapolis vs Colts game after some players took a knee during the National Anthem.
In a Facebook post, Graham said, “Three cheers for Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen for walking out! They were at the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers game when the players took a knee.
“I appreciate that our Vice President has a high standard, and I wish the NFL owners would follow his example.”
Pence responded as to why he left the stadium, saying “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.
“At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.”
