Noted homophobe Mike Pence, a key leader in the quickly destabilizing Trump regime, took a trip to his vacation home in Aspen, Colorado this week. Pence went on the luxurious trip as temperatures dipped across the country and an estimated 550,000 people in the United States are without homes.
While at their vacation home, Pence and his wife, Karen Sue Pence, were welcomed by neighbors with a rainbow-colored banner that read "Make America Gay Again." The banner was hung, something Pence has allegedly said he wants to do to gay people, on a stone pillar located towards the end of a shared driveway.
A deputy was present at the time the neighbors placed the banner on the pillar, Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo told The Aspen Times. "He was real sheepish and thought he might be confronted by the Secret Service or deputies who'd tell him he couldn't do it," the Pitkin County Sheriff remarked. "When they said, 'We're not here to control your free speech rights,' they came out with chili and began feeding them."
The neighbors responsible for the banner sent a correction to The Aspen Times that read: "(The banners) were actually hung by the daughters of the couple who live in the home, and one of their girlfriends (I'm one of them!) with the full support of their parents."
The Pence family is expected to depart from Aspen on Monday.
