Pence’s stunt blew up in his face once journalists started tweeting that the media pool was not allowed to leave the van. That shows that this was a planned walkout on Pence’s part. Further, not to be outdone by anyone, Donald Trump tweeted that he told Pence to walk-out if any players took a knee.
