Mike Pence was a great pick by Donald Trump. There was a little controversy at the time, Ann Coulter thought it was a bad pick among others.
Obama always chose big affairs that really honoured him, not the vets, such is his arrogance.
So I am hoping Barack was watching how Mike pence chose to honour our vets.
Pence showed up unannounced Wed at a WWII memorial. Because he did not want to be a distraction. He wanted to honour the vets, not himself.
An official said,
“Pence wanted to sit in the audience and not be recognized.”
“He wanted his presence to be a gesture of respect to the veterans in attendance.”
“If the event was placed on the Vice President-elect’s official schedule, Secret Service would have had to lock down the entire area, subjecting the veterans in attendance, some in wheelchairs, to metal detectors and other invasive security procedures.”
Pence laid a wreath, paid his respects and left as humbly as he arrived.
No ego Barack. Just respect. Please learn from a proper statesman.
