Pence's NFL walkout stunt was expensive

Last October, VP Pence walked out of an NFL game between the Colts and 49'ers after some players took a knee during the national anthem. the full cost in excess of $325,000, a figure that does not include local security and emergency-response overtime costs. The price includes the cost to fly Air Force 2 to and from the game ($250k), the cost of security including lodging for his security detail ($75k).

Some records seem to indicate that Pence’s walkout was anything but a spontaneous demonstration of patriotic outrage. In one instance rented security walkways were scheduled for pickup prior to the end of the game.

So, $325,000 for a publicity stunt to make the base happy.

Oh man that is outrageous in comparison to @#$%& up hundreds of commercial flights tying up a half a dozen airports to fly Air Force 1 and Air Force 2 a measly 250 miles into NYC to celebrate EARTH DAY.

If we're talking publicity stunts, I'll take one advancing the saving of the planet over some white man's 10 minute faux rage.
