The first sign that Pence’s scurrying-off was staged: these were the San Francisco 49ers that the Colts were playing. The 49ers have been protesting racism during the anthem for over a year. Led by safety Eric Reid, the first player to kneel with Colin Kaepernick over a year ago, the 49ers are the team you’d pick if you wanted to fake outrage about someone peacefully protesting police brutality. Peter Alexander of NBC News tweeted almost immediately, “Reporters [accompanying Pence] were told to stay in van bc ‘there may be an early departure from the game.’” In other words, in advance of the anthem, Pence was planning to show up and then leave.
Then the veep’s own publicly available schedule tripped him up. That morning, his team let it be known that Pence would be at a California fundraiser by 6:30pm. The plane was gassed up and ready to go.
Air Force 2 costs the government $42,936 an hour to fly, and estimated Pence’s trip to Indianapolis took about two and a half hours flying time, each way. That would put the flight’s cost well over $200,000.
And that doesn’t include the costs of a hotel room in Indianapolis,where Pence spent Saturday night, and extra police protection in Indianapolis. Fans at Sunday’s game were asked to show up early due to enhanced security at the stadium.
Funny how liberals all of a sudden care about spending,
Cry some more crocodile tears.
Had nothing to say when Obama and Hillary wasted massive amounts
V.P. Pence's trip was well worth the money.
After Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones
This is to easy, ‘Obamas not president’

You certainly don't. $100,000s wasted on a stunt to suit the presidents ego but you couldn't give a damn. Apparently it's acceptable to throw tax payer money away 'cause ya know Americans waste food anyway'? Not that food is the only thing many american families are suffering financially with (healthcare, shelter, disaster relief).
You think we have all the money in the world to waste on a president's ego?
Who cares right? You don't.
I'm not sure you knew this but he's a major colts fan.
Obama who would go on family vacations but fly separately meaning two jets had to be fueled to go to the same place.
