Pence did not attend Saturday’s unveiling of the statue of Peyton Manning, because he was in Las Vegas attending a prayer and unity event. The ceremony did include remarks by David Letterman, the former talk show host and newscaster on Indianapolis’ WLWI-TV.

Shortly after Pence left the stadium he posted this statement:

Later, President Donald J. Trump Tweeted his praise for Pence:

Colts players released a joint statement Oct. 1 regarding the movement among NFL players to kneel, sit or stretch out during the National Anthem.

“Our intention was to raise awareness and continue critical conversations about real equality, the injustices against black and brown people, police brutality, respect, unity and equal opportunity. Our players are hurting, our people are hurting, our neighborhoods are hurting and kneeling was a direct response to that hurt,” the players said.

“Some of our players may kneel, while others may stand. But this is just the beginning. There is much work to do, and it will take all of us. Kneeling for JUSTICE. Standing for UNITY. Fighting for EQUALITY. Showing RESPECT. TOGETHER.”

Although, Colts owner Jim Irsay has contributed to both Democrats and Republicans, in 2015 Irsay signals he opposition to Pence signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, legislation giving Indianapolis individuals and businesses conscience protection.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
