Pence To Go On An Anywhere But Here Tour

Pence is the one on the right.

Ah, the joy of being the vice prznint:

Pence prepares to confirm Trump’s loss — and then leave town

“On Jan. 6, Vice President Mike Pence will oversee final confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Then he’ll likely skip town.

Remember that scene in Wrath of Khan when the Enterprise in ludicrous speed is escaping the Genesis Effect? I picture something like that.

“As vice president, Pence has the awkward but unavoidable duty of presiding over the session of Congress that will formalize Biden’s Electoral College victory — a development that is likely to expose him and other Republicans to the wrath of GOP voters who believe President Donald Trump’s false claim that the election was stolen from him.

What is Bubbles* going to do?

“But Pence could dodge their ire by leaving Washington immediately for the Middle East and Europe. According to three U.S. officials familiar with the planning, the vice president is eyeing a foreign trip that would take him overseas for nearly a week, starting on Jan. 6.

I don’t mind Pence taking off, it’s the return trip that bums me out.

“Though Pence aides declined to confirm details of the trip, which remains tentative, a U.S. government document seen by POLITICO shows the vice president is due to travel to Bahrain, Israel and Poland, with the possibility of more stops being added. A pre-advance team of Pence aides and other U.S. officials left earlier this week to visit the planned stops in preparation for the multicountry tour, which would be Pence’s first trip abroad since last January, when he traveled to Rome and Jerusalem on a whirlwind two-day sojourn.”

The stations of the cross tour seems likely. One last grift for the road?

* No snark, “Bubbles” was his childhood nickname. The mind boggles.

  1. Bahrain? Wasn’t that where the top sekrit meeting between Erik Prince, the Russians and the Toomp campaign happened? Perhaps he’s going to get orders in person?

    Is he taking the horse? How about Mother? Could be he doesn’t plan to come back. Setting up a government-in-exile to wait for the Once and Future Trump?

    “Hi! I just stopped by to let you know that if a nuke falls outta the sky and lands somewhere in your beautiful country, I’m apologizing in advance, and I tried everything I could to stop it, but preznit tRump has been VERY upset at losing the election, and he’s mad as heck at just about everybody.
    Well, gotta go – I got a lot more stops to make, and don’t worry, if something bad like that does happen, America will help you rebuild & repair. Just send the bill to Biden; he pays on time, unlike someone else I could mention…”

    Will he be taking Mother with him or just avoiding all female companionship? Or can he do both?
