Scarborough on Pence’s 49ers-Colts Walk-Out: ‘This Was a Stunt’

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough hammered Vice President Mike Pence Monday for the “stunt” he pulled at Sunday’s San Francisco 49ers-Indianapolis Colts game where he left after players knelt for the national anthem.

Scarborough said Pence is trying to “deflect” from Bob Corker and “everything else.”

“This was a stunt,” Scarborough argued. “You call a stunt something that you know is going to happen and you go and you play it out. So he went there, knowing the 49ers were going to kneel — everybody in the NFL knew it.”

Scarborough said the “stunt” cost a lot of money and a lot of people from Indiana were “inconvenienced” because of it.
