I'm calling BS on this one. 1 of my duty stations was Andrews Air Force Base. I was on the Navy side. We supported 3 type of aircraft. The T-39, the C-9 and at the time the slickest ride in the inventory the C-20. The C-20 is the designation of the civilianl Gulfstream IV.
But staffers who fly on Air Force Two with Vice President Kamala Harris are claiming they get served shabby meals.
“It’s a little more Southwest Airlines than Four Seasons,” said a former staffer to Harris, who described Air Force Two food as “horrible slop,” Politico reported.
The veep’s staffers complain that they get served cold pasta salad, soggy cold-cut sandwiches on white rolls, and bags of chips. When they’re flying early in the morning, it’s usually an egg and spinach breakfast burrito.
“Their counterparts on President Joe Biden’s plane get filet mignon and other hot delicacies on gold-rimmed plates, accompanied by cold beers,” The Telegraph reported.
“Everything sucks compared to AF-1,” a second former vice presidential staffer told Politico. “It’s so much more sophisticated and professional.”
“Another downside of Air Force Two: no booze. While staffers flying with the president can order a beer on the way home from a long day of travel, those traveling on the vice president’s plane don’t have that option,” Politico wrote.
I flew on AF1/II for 10/5 yrs, the food the flight attendants prepared was always amazing! I also noticed it depends on the admistration in office who were the whinny primadonna types who had no respect for the aircraft or crews.I'm calling BS on this one. 1 of my duty stations was Andrews Air Force Base.

We took people from capitol hill on junkets when it was in the best interests of the navy. We would get notified a few days before of a pending flight. We would contact someone on the staff to coordinate what they would want as far as food & beverage. I'm telling you, they got to choose what they wanted. And there was no shortage of alcohol in flight.
The C-9 & C-20 each had fully equipped galleys. The T-39 didn't. So those meals were mostly cold sandwiches and maybe soup from a thermos. I have to imagine that the galley on air force II is pretty nice. If they want more than little packets of pretzels & peanuts, they need to speak up.
FWIW, most of the people I flew have long retired from politics. In fact, most have passed away. Because at the time they were quite old and many had mobility issues. Strom Thurmon shook so bad, I was shocked he didn't give himself a shower when he attempted to drink his coffee.
The most down to earth person I flew with was Sam Gejdenson. He was a democrat from Connecticut who started out life being born in a German refugee camp right after the end of WW II. He won 1 of his congressional elections by 21 votes. Talk about razor thin margin of victory.
You work under Mark Donnelly when he was AF 1's pilot?I flew on AF1/II for 10/5 yrs, the food the flight attendants prepared was always amazing! I also noticed it depends on the admistration in office who were the whinny primadonna types who had no respect for the aircraft or crews.
North Carolina is currently at the center to the ongoing state-level fight over abortion access. The state Legislature last month voted to override a veto from Gov. Roy Cooper (D) that would have stopped a ban on abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy from going into effect. With the override, the law will go into effect on July 1.
I am expecting some delicious word salad in Charlotte.Vice President Kamala Harris will mark the first anniversary of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade by traveling to North Carolina and rallying pro-abortion activists as the state prepares to enact its own law protecting unborn babies.
A White House official told The Hill this week that Harris will travel to Charlotte to deliver a “major speech” focused on contrasting the Biden administration’s pro-abortion efforts with Republicans’ efforts to pass supposedly “extreme legislation.” Harris is also expected to reiterate the White House’s support of a federal law codifying the so-called “right” to abortion. According to the report:
Harris is also marking the Dobbs anniversary by sitting down for a televised roundtable discussion hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid, according to the White House.
The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on June 24 last year to overturn its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, holding in the Dobbs case that the Constitution does not include a right to abortion and returning the issue of abortion laws and regulations to state legislatures. Since then, several Republican-led states have moved to pass laws limiting abortion and holding abortionists and accomplices accountable who violate state abortion laws.

They seem to make it abundantly clear that just about anything you say or do makes them "afraid for their lives". Maybe they should visit a nation where fear of death is a little more spelled out.
