Just days after President Donald Trump reportedly called Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations "sh*thole countries," Vice President Mike Pence has been called out for a tweet honoring MLK Day. Twitter reminded him that he recently (and very publicly) walked out of a Colts game where players kneeled during the national anthem. 

Pence tweeted a video and said, “Today we remember the legacy of MLK Jr. His memorial stands tall, but the real memorial to Dr. King resides in the hearts of all who strive for a more perfect union. To honor him, let’s rededicate ourselves to the cause Dr. King selflessly advanced, that all men are created equal.”

Twitter was fast to jump on the vice president's hypocrisy.

Samantha Bee also responded with a tweet that reads, "Three months ago, you walked out of an event in disgust because of a non-violent protest by black athletes."

Bee also called out Senator Ted Cruz for his post honoring MLK on Twitter, and said, "You accused people peacefully protesting the murder of black men and women of 'literally suggesting and embracing and celebrating the murder of police officers.'"

Colin Kaepernick began the national anthem movement in August 2016, saying that he would not "stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” Last year, Pence said he would not "dignify" the NFL protests, a comment that contradicts his request to "rededicate ourselves to the cause Dr. King selflessly advanced, that all men are created equal.”
