It’s not often, especially nowadays, to see a Republican talk smack about their orange Commander-In-Tweets. A lot of these yellow-bellied, money-grubbers don’t want to upset the powers that be, in fear of losing their political powers.
But, the moment Mike Pence decided to make himself the President’s hand-puppet and leave that NFL game after players decided to kneel, solely because he was “instructed to,” was the last straw for many Republicans that were still holding on by a thread.
Steve Schmidt, a very popular Republican strategist and analyst, called the Vice President’s departure from the game, “Utterly appalling, wasteful, profligate, disgusting behavior from the vice president.”
He went on to elaborate on his point by stating, “So he took Air Force Two, full package of Secret Service from Las Vegas to Indianapolis for a stunt, inconvenienced tens of thousands of Colts fans to, again, use the flag and the anthem as a prop.”
It truly is remarkable how petty this Administration has been.
This is a gross misuse of government funds and resources. This political publicity stunt was intended to strengthen Trump’s point, but it only highlighted his arrogance and his racism.
