Mike Pence Sent Out Not One, But Two Pro-Israel Tweets With A Very Embarrassing And Obvious Error

A forgivable mistake for a high school kid, but not the Vice President of the United States...

It’s a new week, that means the Trump has a whole new social media snafu to deal with. On Friday, Vice President Mike Pence’s Twitter account sent out two missives about a speech he was to give in front of the Jewish Coalition. Assuring his online audience that the United States stands with Israel. To bolster his point, he included emojis of the Israeli flag in each tweet.

Or rather, he THOUGHT he included emojis of the Israeli flag in both tweets. What he really did was included Nicaragua’s flag in both. Because he’s better at spin control than international flags, he took down both tweets, but not before the Twittersphere memorialized the errors, as they are wont to do:

Here are his posts in their erroneous entirety:



Here’s the Nicaraguan flag:

And here’s Israel’s – you know, the one with the big-ass Star of David on it:

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
