Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT, on Sunday criticized VIce President Mike Pence for Walking out of an Indianapolis Colts game, calling it “a multi million dollar political stunt paid for by taxpayers.”

“Don’t let these guys tell you they are fiscal conservatives. This was a multi million dollar political stunt paid for by taxpayers,” Murphy said via Twitter.

The Senator’s comments come in response to an announcement that Prence had left the Colts game early as a counterprotest against football players kneeling in protest during the national anthem.
