Vice President Mike Pence and his wife left the Colts- 49ers game early on Sunday, when the protests continued during the National Anthem. President Trump had asked Pence to leave if kneeling still occurred during the anthem. He obliged. Pence and his wife departed from the game.
The VP took to Twitter not long after to explain his prompt departure. He explained how neither he nor President Donald Trump would “dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag or our national anthem.”
Of course liberals gave Pence their own opinions on his actions, however TMZ asked one Hollywood celebrity what he thought about it and recorded it. Actor John O’Hurley, best known for his hilarious role portraying character Elaine’s boss J. Peterman on the long-running comedy “Seinfeld,” left a restaurant on Sunday evening when he was approached by a reporter and was asked his opinion on what Pence had done.
O’Hurley gave a big ‘thumbs up’ in response, then saying, “I go to a football game as I go to a movie or anything else for escapism, not to hear somebody’s political views.”
“Or not to be exposed to somebody’s political views. I’m coming out of a restaurant. If somebody announced the specials with their political views tonight, I’d have the same reason to be angry, wouldn’t I?”
The reporter seemed to agree with the sentiment to which O’Hurley simply smiled and stated, “Bravo,” as he made his way to his waiting car.
