Federal employees warned about Pence coming to NASA on Thursday

You have to wake up pretty early in the morning to make up stuff like this. According to Fox Orlando:

NASA has announced that Vice President Mike Pence and NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will visit NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston on August 23rd. They will discuss the future of human space exploration and the agency’s plan to return to the Moon as a forerunner to future human missions to Mars.

In preparation for the traffic jams and the visit to JSC NASA HQs has issued the following statement:

NASA/JSC Employees, 

On Thursday the Vice President of the United States will visit Johnson Space Center to discuss plans to return to the Moon with select civil service employees. He will address these employees in Bldg 2 at noon. Invitations to this event will be sent late Wednesday. 

For those privileged enough to attend this great event with the Vice President, we ask you to adhere to a few simple guidelines. 1) Arrive early to complete the security process, 2) No signs will be allowed into the auditorium, and 3) With the extraordinary events of Tuesday we ask all employees to refrain from chanting “Lock him up! Lock him up!” instead consider “Back to the Moon!” or “Mars of Bust” or if you cannot be creative just chant “USA USA USA”.  

For those who will not be invited to see Pence please consider taking a day of leave, or call in sick, or work from home. Do anything to avoid the traffic and embarrassment of watching the Vice President acting like nothing has happened over the last few days. Please plan to return to full work conditions on Friday.
