Minutes later, Pence tweeted that he left the game before kickoff due to players kneeling during the National Anthem.
After many suspected the incident smelling like a PR stunt put on by Pence and President Donald Trump, someone noticed that the image Pence originally Tweeted out wasn’t even from Sunday’s game.
Turns out the picture was from a Colts game in 2014 which Pence attended with his wife.
