Mike Pence’s Planned Football Walkout Stunt Cost Taxpayers Over $242,000

 

CNN News reports that Mike Pence’s staged PR stunt of the the incensed VP walking out on an Indianapolis Colts game after the 49ers kneeled during the National Anthem cost taxpayers over $242,000.

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.

Pence’s trip on Air Force 2 — which doesn’t take into account logistics on the ground like Secret Service — cost about $242,500, according to an estimate from CNN published on Monday.

According to sources press pool reporters traveling with the VP were not allowed into the stadium and were told they would not be staying long. Adding more proof to the fact that it was a stunt – Pence was going to leave no matter what

Talk about disrespect.  Nothing is more disrespectful than wasting American tax dollars on purpose.
