Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Mike Pence violates NASA rules
US Vice President Mike Pence has apologized to the NASA spacecraft organization. During a guided tour of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, he touched a spacecraft part, on which a big letters sign said “Do not touch”.
Pence says on Twitter that he had to touch the item. In his opinion, he was challenged by former candidate for the US presidential election and Republican senator Marco Rubio.
NASA has accepted Trump‘s vice president’s apology. What would have happened to a non-elite visitor, a cleaner or doorman who would have broken NASA rules this way? Being sacked, fined or jailed? Maybe Pence is ‘too big to jail‘?
