There are numerous mysteries surrounding Washington DC and the inner-workings of our political system that we can delve into as citizens, but few are found in plain sight. In the case of VP Mike Pence’s plane mystery, however, the truth is just around the corner.
Earlier this week the Vice President was set to address authorities in New Hampshire regarding the threat of the opioid crisis on our nation. At the last minute, however, the trip was canceled. The White House has said that Pence never left Washington, despite reports to the contrary during the event.
The reason for the reversal remains unclear. Some have pointed to an active shooter scare in the vicinity of a NH airport…but not the airport that Pence was scheduled to land at. Others feared trouble at The White House.
President Trump is laying that latter claim to rest today, speaking publicly for the first time about the incident, but he has added another air of mystery to the entire debacle as well.
There was a very interesting problem that they had in New Hampshire,” Trump told reporters, without saying what the problem was.
Trump said the reason will become known “in about a week or two.”
“I can’t tell you about it. But it had nothing to do with the White House,” Trump said. “There was a problem up there.”
The internet was ablaze with theories regarding Pence’s sudden change of plans, thanks in no small part to the timing of the incident which coincided with a similar change of plans announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
