Pence Visits Western Wall, Holocaust Museum in Israel

It sure would be nice if our Vice President could find the time for a trip to our southern border where we desperately need a wall ourselves to stop the flow of deadly heroin and fentanyl from Mexico which is killing more people than the AIDS epidemic at its peak.

Alas, I guess he has more important things to tend to.

From Haaretz:
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem on Tuesday. Confirming Haaretz's earlier reports, Pence's visit to the site, which is located beyond the 1967 lines and therefore not recognized by the world as part of Israel, took place without the presence of any Israeli political leaders, just like the visit U.S. President Donald Trump made to the holy site in May.

During Pence's visit, female journalists accompanying the vice president were separated from their male colleagues and sent away to a fenced and covered area in the back of the Western Wall compound.

The incident provoked outrage among the American female journalists accompanying him. Following their protest, White House personnel have commenced removing the covering as part of a compromise, so the journalists could stand atop chairs and catch a view of the visit.

One of the female journalists present, Globes reporter Tal Schneider, told Haaretz: "I don't like being restricted in my job just because I'm a woman. I can't stand it and it's unacceptable in the modern world. This discriminatory attitude towards women is infuriating and inappropriate in a modern country." Other female journalists present used the #PenceFence hashtag when discussing the event on social media.
At least we get a laugh out of this trip:

Those are the Western Wall rules. Maybe you should take it up with them instead of blaming Mike Pence?

He went on to visit a Holocaust Museum:
Pence then visited Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, where he participated in a wreath-laying ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance. Engraved on the mosaic floor of the Hall of Remembrance are the names of 22 Nazi murder sites, symbolic of the hundreds of extermination and concentration camps, transit camps and killing sites that existed throughout Europe.
Hopefully, when he gets back he can take some time out of his busy schedule to visit the wall prototypes in San Diego and address the 64,000 Americans being killed every year in a drug holocaust predominately due to Mexican heroin and fentanyl (and the Sackler family who created the Oxycontin epidemic).
