Mike Pence’s MLK day tweet royally backfired

    Vice President Mike Pence is being called out for honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday simply months after he left of an NFL video game where gamers of color objected authorities cruelty by kneeling throughout the nationwide anthem.

    Pence, signing up with a chorus of other political leaders, tweeted on Monday early morning after going to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington D.C. that America ought to “rededicate ourselves” to King’s causes.

    “Today we keep in mind the tradition of MLK Jr. His memorial stands high, however the genuine memorial to Dr. King lives in the hearts of all who pursue a more best union. To honor him, let’s rededicate ourselves to the cause Dr. King selflessly advanced, that males are developed equivalent.”

    However, Twitter fasted to mention that Pence has a spotty history when it pertains to dealing with individuals similarly.

    In October, Pence went out of an NFL video game in between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts amidst President Donald Trump s tirades versus gamers kneeling throughout the nationwide anthem .

    The paradox of Pence tweeting about King’s “cause” while stating he would not “dignify” the NFL demonstration in 2015 was not lost on individuals– not to discuss his record versus LGBTQ Americans .
