Neighbors of the home where Vice President Mike Pence was staying in Colorado during the holidays had a message.
They placed a rainbow-colored banner on a stone pillar at the end of the driveways to both homes near the posh ski resort of Aspen.
The banner read “Make America Gay Again” — a play on President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”
Pitkin County sheriff’s deputy Michael Buglione told the Aspen Times that Secret Service agents weren’t bothered by the sign.
Pence has described himself as a “Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.”
He has opposed legislation prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in the workplace and, as governor of Indiana, signed into law legislation allowing discrimination against LGBT people.
