It's like we're all living in a reality show. The President of the United States tweeted that he directed our Vice President to leave a football game if the players took a knee during our National Anthem. I feel like that sentence is the result of a Mad Libs game.
Earlier today our Vice President, Mike pence tweeted a photo of himself at the Colts vs 49ers game. Shortly after, Pence walked out of the game due to the protest of the National Anthem. Trump, which I should remind is our POTUS...., then tweeted in support of Pence, saying that he directed our VP to leave the game if there were any protests.
The tweet from Trump:
Donald J. Trump ?@realDonaldTrump
I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.

First of all Trump, Pence, everyone at the stadium, everyone at home, and everyone else around the world that keeps up with the U.S. knew that it was going to happen. This was Trump poking at the NFL. This was our President going out of his way to irritate everyone involved with the protest and the NFL. This was Trump using another high-up member of our government to make a completely pointless statement and purposely provoke the Americans he is supposed to be leading. This was absolutely planned, per Trump himself in his tweet. So at some point the leaders of our country were actually having this ridiculous conversation. Imagine that.
You know, I have a feeling that both Trump and Pence, once again our President and Vice President of the United States, have something else to do. I can't quite put my finger on what they could be doing other than going to football games and tweeting, but I'm pretty sure something needs to get done that's more important than those. Maybe natural disasters? Or maybe terrorism? Maybe millions of people starving and homeless? Maybe the situation in North Korea? Maybe our disastrous healthcare system? Maybe government employees using entire budgets to fly around the world in private jets to stargaze and go on vacation? I don't know.... Now that I say it out loud, I guess football and Twitter is where we all need to be focusing our attention.
