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.
But boy has he been amazing. Exceptional really. The first thing he did when he took control of Trump’s transition team was to get rid of all the lobbyists and put new rules in place that guarantee lobbyists will have zero influence in the Trump admin.
Contrast that will Obama who made speeches about getting rid of lobbyists but never actually took action.
Another big contrast between Pence and Obama is on the proper way to honor our vets.
Obama always chose big affairs that really honored him, not the vets, such is his arrogance.
So I am hoping Barack was watching how Mike pence chose to honor our vets.
Pence showed up unannounced Wed at a WWII memorial. Because he did not want to be a distraction. He wanted to honor 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 lockdown 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.
