    Did he complain about the bedbugs? (They're called Maga Care Bears in Trumpspeaks.)

    Mike Pence accused of humiliating hosts in Ireland | US news | The Guardian - "The vice-president’s comments on Brexit while visiting Ireland and his stay at his boss’s golf course did not go down well"
    She described the impact of the Pence visit on Ireland as “like pulling out all the stops for a much-anticipated visitor to your home and thinking it has been a great success until somebody discovers he shat on the new carpet in the spare room, the one you bought specially for him”.

    “As Pence read from the autocue and Irish eyes definitely stopped smiling,” she added, “it was clear he was channeling His Master’s Voice. Trump is a fan of Brexit and of Boris.”

    “Pence,” Lord continued, “is Irish American and wastes no opportunity to go misty-eyed about his love for the ‘Old Country’ as he lards on his Mother Machree schtick on both sides of the Atlantic.”

    Lord wasn’t alone in her criticism. The Examiner’s political editor, Daniel McConnell, wrote: “The cheek of him coming here, eating our food, clogging up our roads and then having the nerve to humiliate his hosts.”
    What a jerk.

    Peaceful Iceland amazed at weapons in Pence security detail
    US Vice President Mike Pence’s arrival in Iceland with military jets and armed personnel set eyes popping Wednesday in a nation consistently ranked as the world’s most peaceful.

    The size and standards of the vice president’s security detail also required adjustments. The guards protecting Pence got backup from a police force that allows only elite “Viking SWAT” members to carry guns.

    ...
    Before Pence’s arrival, US Secret Service personnel spent weeks scouting locations. Icelandic President Gudni Jóhannesson travels unaccompanied on private errands and is often spotted in a geothermal bath popular with locals.
    What paranoia.

    They were just making sure that no unaccompanied women were around.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.
