Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence was 40 minutes late to his rally at St. Pete Clearwater International Airport and things went downhill fast when he finally started talking.
Five minutes into his speech in a hangar, the lights went out and Pence’s microphone turned off. For a several minutes Pence waited patiently for the power to turn back on. Then walked off the stage and came back with a flashlight and a bullhorn.
As difficult as it was for people in the back to hear Pence, his message resonated through the crowd and people began chanting U-S-A, U-S-A. His focus for most of the speech was aimed directly at Hillary Clinton and why Donald Trump should become our 45th President.
“I choose a stronger America, I choose a more prosperous America, an America that stands by our highest constitutional principles,” Pence said. “So, I chose to stand with Donald Trump and every American who knows how to make America great again.”
Pence wasted no time taking aim at Clinton’s ongoing problems regarding her personal email.
“We commend the FBI for reopening the case,” Pence said. “Because here in this country no one is against the law.”
After the power came back on Pence focused on highlighting Trump’s future for America. He talked about deporting illegal criminal immigrants, creating jobs, repealing Obamacare, and taking care of veterans and members of law enforcement.
With the power back on and the speaker system working, Pence urged Floridians to do one thing.
“Go out and vote,” Pence said. “Im here with the lights on, the lights off, the bullhorn because I am here for the team. That man (Trump) is ready, this team is ready, this movement is obviously ready.”
