Pence Pelted on Twitter During Ski Vacation by Colorado State Senator

Justifiable outrage has been focused on Donald Trump the past several days. Two Americans are dying every minute from COVID-19, millions are facing eviction as unemployment payments end and food lines stretch for hours, yet Donald Trump nonchalantly plays golf at his private club in warm, sunny south Florida while plotting to overturn the election.

But at the same time, three quarters of the way across the country, his number two guy also is enjoying a luxury vacation while America suffers. Pence and his family are hitting the fresh powder on the ski slopes of the tony resort town of Vail, Colo.

A local website reported that 18 Secret Service agents have booked rooms at the Grand Hyatt Vail, with 30 more agents staying in other locations around the valley. Ski instructors have reportedly been booked for the Pence party at nearby Beaver Creek Resort, and one source confirmed one of the vice president’s brothers has been spotted in town.

A Democratic Colorado state senator is none too happy about it and she has been trolling Pence hard on Twitter since a military plane carrying vehicles for his motorcade landed at the area’s regional airport on Tuesday. Kerry Donovan tweeted at Pence, “Heard you’re visiting my hometown for the holiday. Stay tuned for a story a day of the things that would be different if you had chosen to lead and address … instead of ignore and minimize the COVID-19 pandemic.”

On Wednesday, when Pence arrived in Vail, Donovan greeted him with this: “Good morning. Make sure you pack a mask. You’ll be spending the holidays in a mandatory mask zone.” She also pointed out that Colorado saw its first decrease in public school enrollment since the 1980s due to the pandemic.

True to her word Donovan has continued bashing the vice president by pointing out the real-world results of the Trump administration’s epic bungling of its coronavirus response.

Here is her latest, in which she reminds Pence of the extreme hardship being suffered by those working in the service industry.
