Pence’s Political Stunt

October 08, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Dammit!, Sumbitches, Trump

VP Dense pulled a not-very-sophisticted political stunt today at the Indianapolis Colts game by showing up for the game, and tweeting this picture of himself with all the blah-blah-blah about standing for the soldiers, the flag, blah-blah-blah, :

As soon as the anthem was over, Dense then IMMEDIATELY left the game, tweeting this: 

Then Trump immediately followed up with this tweet:

Just patriots honoring the flag, right?  Pence comes to the stadium, tweeting he’s looking forward to the Colts game, then immediately leaves, incensed that players “disrespected the flag” by daring to kneel during the national anthem.  Trump then confirmed that he’s a super patriot by instructing Pence to leave if anyone protested during the anthem.  A spontaneous display of flag loving, yes?  Well, no, not really.

NBC News’ Peter Alexander then tweeted that the press corps with Pence had been instructed to not go into the game and stay in the van, since “there may be an early departure…”.  Alexander then reported that Pence immediately went back to the airport and flew to Los Angeles for a fundraiser.

So VP Dense, in cahoots with Cheeto Jesus, wasted millions of taxpayer dollars to jet to Indianapolis just so he could stage a walkout from the Indianapolis Colts game to show his patriotism for his mouth-breathing base.

The stupid thing about this stunt was they thought they would actually fool anyone with this kind of amateur idiocy.  Except for the mouth-breathers, of course.

  1. Pence is no more honest or moral than Two Scoops, he’s just better at hiding his rotten interior; old whited sepulchre that he is.

  2. I swear, these tools must swallow an extra gallon of stupid every morning!

  3. And the Trumpoons slapped their kids and punched shoulders in approval.

  4. Jane & PKM says:

    Donnie and Mikey are two very confused old geezers. Patriotism; is there a better way to express one’s patriotism than peaceful demonstration? Freedom of expression is what makes us American.

    Oh. And how dumb is Mikey? Apparently sufficiently st00pid to screw up a false flag operation. Geez … ten months into this maladministration and Mikey hasn’t figured out that following Donnie’s instruction is a sure fire way to smack oneself with a boomerang mudpack. Yeah .. well … yes … Mikey better hope that was mud.

  5. So if Pence is “offended” by three or four people on a team who he says do not display proper respect for the troops, how does he feel about someone who doesn’t know the difference between the Coast Guard & Air Force, saying he likes war veterans who weren’t captured… etc, etc, etc…

  6. Rick, the fact that something comes out of Donnie’s mouth… wherever on his body that’s located… makes manure turn to solid gold, doncha know. And there is no length to which they will not go to pander to the base, because the base is all he’s got.

    1943 Supreme Court Ruling, opinion of Jackson re the pledge of allegiance:

    “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us.”

    Also of note, a C32 costs $42,936 an hour to operate. Pence flew from Las Vegas to Indianapolis (2.5 hours) and then all the way back to Los Angeles. So, this little show cost taxpayers at least $250,000.

    He had to be in Los Angeles for a major GOP fundraiser. It was staged. A picture of the acting now banners his Twitter page. Mother is wearing a football jersey.

  8. Rick, thanks for the laugh, but now I’ll have to clean my keyboard. Again.

    Rhea, great link–thanks!

  9. Swallow stupid? No, they’re donors.

  10. slipstream says:

    It the press waits in the van outside the stadium, the Secret Service should wait in the van outside the stadium.

  11. JAKvirginia says:

    Stupid Things Republicans Say

    Bubba: “Hold my beer.”

    Pence: “Hey, I’ve got a photo op idea.”

  12. The picture he sent out in a tweet is from 2014. The trip to California is to fundraise for Dana Rohrabacher. They have a problem with the NFL but not the Natzi Tiki Torch protests.

  13. Two things:

    No draft dodger (bone spurs on his heels, my sweet patootie) is going to tell me how to respect the flag.

    If he promises not to appear, I’ll take a knee anywhere, any time.

  14. Perhaps UCLA/J. B. Wilson and Mo Murphy should create a new category of Razzie to acknowledge such horrid political performances on the public stage.

  15. Jane & PKM says:

    Norma, isn’t Rohrabacher the one with the Russian wineries?

    Micr, we have twitter to Razzie Donnie. Hope he sleeps well after my last tweet. Simply asked about the “wisdom” of sending Mikey Dense to bag the campaign contributions. Mikey could go rogue and throw that cash into his own 2020 coffer.

    Ted, good point. At least Rush was honest about what afflicted his azz, while Donnie is confused as to where his is located, unless Vlad is there to give him a pointer.

  16. Sam in St Paul says:

    The entire show was a diversion from, among other things, the way Doofus got b!tch-slapped by Bob Corker. Trump and Mother need matching shirts that say, “I’m with Stupid ->”

  17. Dana Rohrabacher is a Congressman from California. He is the one Kevin McCarthy joked on tape was probably on Russian payroll. They denied it until tape was made public. Then they wanted to know who recorded their meeting. He is a big supporter of Russia.

  18. Tilphousia says:

    Patriotism my patootie! My family has had members who fought in every war since 1776. Hey, traitor trump and traitor Pense, you have no right to tell ANYONE how to peacefully demonstrate. And both you nitwits can’t even get why right. Now be good little quislings and start repaying all the taxpayer money that you and your corrupt comrades have stolen for personal use.

  19. Just curious: Would it disrespect the flag if you mooned Il Douche with a flag tattooed on your butt?

  20. Why is that 2 Star General next to Mickey not saluting? Maybe I’m not up on military flag or national anthem protocol, but that just doesn’t look right.

  21. Good catch Cindy. As a veteran I can either render a hand salute or the hand over heart. Either are allowed in the flag code. However a person in a military uniform doesn’t have an option. They are required to render a hand salute.

  22. There’s a lot of Kabuki around the whole national anthem thing and hyper-sensitivity about saluting. This officer was “uncovered”, i.e. not wearing a cap. Military typically don’t wear caps indoors. When you’re not wearing a cap you don’t salute during the national anthem. The roof of the stadium was reported as closed, so, technically they were indoors, so no salute (as if it matters one whit).

  23. Pence was disrespectful of those players rights.
    If he wants to salute the flag that is his right.
    He needs to respect the rights of others.
    Didn’t we go through this already in the 60’s during the Vietnam Name war?
    Personally, I find those that wear the flag as a piece of clothing, bathing suits, shirts etc very offensive. Or wrapping themselves in a flag, yuck!

  24. oldymoldy says:

    so these people really do have nothing to do!?

  25. Mikey, poo. If the football players want to take a knee or both knees, they sure can do it. After all, the Budweiser Clydesdales took a knee, too, or did you forget that? And it wasn’t a sign of disrespect.

  26. e platypus onion says:

    If it weren’t for that little tiff between our founding fathers and King George, Old Glory would not have been born. The flag was born of protest.

  27. Annabelle Lee says:

    It makes me wonder what he would have done if no one had knelt. What excuse would he have given for leaving then? Since, you know, he was already planning to leave immediately after the anthem.

  28. I can’t think of any ‘event’ that would be ‘dignified’ by the appearance of Trump or Pence.
