‘This is your hard-earned money and your tax at work.’

That Fox sportscaster Joe Buck was criticizing a military-jet flyover before an NFL game in Tampa, Fla., On Sunday.

Buck was caught on a hot mic shortly before the kickoff of Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Flyovers by military jets have been a fixture of sporting events over the years, but Buck and his announcer partner, Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, do not appear to be fans.

“That’s a lot of jet aircraft fuel to do a lot,” Aikman observed before the game, with Buck being dramatically commented about the tax dollars.

According to the Washington Post, flying a squadron of jets can cost about $ 60,000 per hour. President Trump’s controversial Fourth of July event at the National Mall in 2019 is a massive flyover valued at $ 1.2 million, according to Pentagon figures quoted Military.com.

Aikman, who has not shaken past affairs before stopping positions, said that “that stuff is not happening with the Kamala-Biden ticket, I’ll tell you that right now, mate.”
