Mike Pence Blasted Over NFL Walkout
The nation’s wax figure faced alleged Vice President (not ours) did a deplorable action this weekend. Robotic Republican Mike Pence decided to bring his rusty gears to an Indianapolis Colts game juuuust so he could allegedly leave in a harrumph when he saw NFL players kneeling during the anthem.
According to CNN, reporters who traveled with Pence to the game were told to remain on the bus and were not let into the stadium fueling allegations that the entire thing was a publicity stunt to the tune of $242,500 of tax-payer money.
“A Pence aide said the Indianapolis trip was planned for weeks because former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was being honored at the game; the Las Vegas leg, however, was put on the schedule in recent days, adding to the total expenditures.
“The Vice President was not going to miss the Las Vegas memorial prayer walk on Saturday, which he was honored to attend on behalf of President Trump,” another aide said in a statement to CNN. “If the Vice President did not go to Indiana for the Colts game, he would have flown back to D.C. for the evening — which means flying directly over Indiana. Instead, he made a shorter trip to Indiana for a game that was on his schedule for several weeks.”
The pool of journalists accompanying the vice president was not allowed into the stadium and was asked to stay in their vans. They were told by a staffer that “there may be an early departure from the game,” but were not given any further details.”
L A M E.
Good ol’ Mango Mussolini is letting everyone know that the entire thing was preplanned but the White House insists that while they knew Pence was going to the game, they had no ideer that he was going to leave.
Alternative facts for sure.
