  • Authorities said Secret Service agents were not bothered by the banner and were cordial with the residents who hung

Vice President Mike Pence, who's spending the holidays in Aspen, Colo. with his family, got a not so-subtle message of scorn from a neighbor in the liberal ski resort town earlier this week.

Mike Pence's neighbors in Aspen, Colorado just trolled the anti-LGBT Vice President with a rainbow banner that reads "Make America Gay Again".

The publication reported that the banner was put up by the daughters of the couple staying in the home neighboring Pence's vacation retreat and their girlfriends.

Pence, who has often described himself as 'a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order, ' has a history of taking positions that place him at odds with the LGBTQ community.

This isn't the first time neighbors of the Pence family have trolled the Vice President with rainbow colors.

Pence has a history of taking positions that place him at odds with the LGBTQ community including opposing a repeal the US military's former'Don't Ask Don't Tell policy and once likening marriage equality to'societal collapse

Pence has regularly been criticized for signing a law as IN governor that many say sanctions discrimination against LGBTQ customers. The bill caused national outrage and IN lawmakers were eventually pressured into including some anti-discrimination protections amid threats of companies boycotting the state. Pence said on the House floor that he feared the bill "could have a chilling effect on the religious expression and religious freedom of millions of Americans".

Prior to becoming IN governor, Pence was a congressman from 2001 to 2013.

Pence arrived in Aspen on Tuesday according to the report. Over the years, he has actively supported legislation against marriage equality, has said being gay is a choice, has voted against discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, has supported conversion therapy, and said that gay couples and marriage equality signals "societal collapse".

Deputy Buglione explained the homeowners brought chili and corn muffins to the deputies and Secret Service agents who were posted.

Aspen is the county seat of Pitkin, where Hillary Clinton defeated Trump by a significant margin: 69.7 percent to 24.3 percent. Barack Obama also led the state in 2008 and 2012.
