Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, before they walked out of the 49ers/Colts game.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, walked out of the Colts-49ers game after some players knelt in protest during the National Anthem. Some people responded with condemnation, some responded with praise, but others responded with mockery and brought out the memes, jokes, and GIFs.

Some people joked that people had now figured out a way to get Pence to leave.

Others, though, heaped Pence with praise.

Pence wrote on Twitter, “We were proud to stand – with all our @Colts – for our soldiers, our flag, and our National Anthem 🇺🇸” along with a photo of himself and Karen Pence standing for the National Anthem.

The Vice President also released a statement explaining his decision to subsequently leave the game. “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…While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don’t think it’s too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem,” Pence wrote in a tweet.

President Donald Trump then revealed that he had asked Pence to leave the game if any players took a knee, writing, “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”

That has people on Twitter accusing Pence of staging a premeditated stunt, since it wasn’t hard to guess that some people would kneel.

Here are some of the Twitter responses:

Great !
It was good for the VP to stand up and show those poor misguided individuals that believe freedom is free …
But !
It’s a shame that their mother or their father never showed them how to respect and give respect ..
As far as that SOB is concerned !
That !!
I’ll sign and stand for the national anthem ,if you please just hire me ? I know one thing he better slow down on his million-dollar lifestyle because soon that SOB will be broke soon ! and ;
that’s a good thing for America ..
One less black supremacist with money … there’s no difference between a white supremacist and a black supremacist or a Hispanic supremacist or an Asian Supremacy but the left want you to believe there’s only one kind of Supremacy … Now the left claims thay will follow federal law concerning taking guns from law-abiding citizens !
But have no concern of enforcing Federal immigration laws …
