Vice President Mike Pence spokesman tells reporters that it was Donald Trump’s “suggestion” that he stay at his golf club in Ireland while on official government business. Meanwhile, it’s crickets from Republicans and some Democrats as the corruption is out in plain sight.
The excuse Marc Short tried to use and failed miserably was that Pence was staying at Trump’s Doonbeg club because the family has ties to the village.

This comes after Trump says “his people” suggested that he hold the G-7 Summit next year at his Doral golf club (which is losing money and has bedbugs). It also follows more corruption….Attorney General Bill Barr is having his Christmas party at Trump’s D.C. hotel.
Twitter destroyed Mike Pence and his “Mafia Boss” Trump:
Virtually every policy Trump pursues works to steal public money & personally enrich himself & his friends.
💰Gutting National Monuments pays ➡️ Fossil Fuel CEOs
💰Border concentration camps pay ➡️ Private Prison CEOs
💰Betsy DeVos pays ➡️ loan sharks
It’s always about the con. https://t.co/ggINFg52Kw

Also, I hope you don't encounter bedbugs. Many people say there are lots of bedbugs at Trump properties. https://t.co/KgJfnMRSgt

While in Ireland, VP Pence is staying in Trump's golf resort. Which is in Doonbeg (red pin).
His official duties are in Dublin, which is literally the opposite side of the country.
Apart from enriching the President, what is the purpose of running up taxpayer costs like this? pic.twitter.com/30QyxI5WXb

In the mafia there’s a concept known as “kicking up” or “paying tribute” to the Boss – lining the Boss’s pockets to keep him happy. The Boss doesn’t have to explicitly ask; it’s understood.

Headline: “VP Mike Pence defends decision to stay at Trump Doonbeg property in Ireland.” Reaction: There is no defense. You do as you are told. Kiss the ring. Stick it to the taxpayers.
