Vice President Mike Pence truly offended millions of Americans today by comparing the racist, p***y grabbing, anti-immigrant, anti-labor and anti-justice Donald Trump to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — the day before the federal holiday that honors his legacy. It is one of the many low points in Pence horrible performance as Vice President.
While on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Pence about the shutdown, “If this is a genuine attempt [at ending the shutdown], why weren’t any Democrats included in the consultations?”
Pence babbled that the shutdown is all the fault of the Democrats then insanely said, “Honestly, you know, the hearts and minds of the American people today are thinking a lot about it being the weekend we are remembering the life and the work of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. One of my favorite quotes from Dr. King was, ‘Now is the time to make real the the promises of democracy.’”
He continued, still not answering the question,“You think of how he changed America, he inspired us to change through the legislative process, to become a more perfect union. That’s exactly what President Trump is calling on the Congress to do, come to the table in a spirit of good faith.” Host Margaret Brennan starred in complete shock at the insanity. See below, if you can stomach it:
Mike Pence clearly needs a history lesson — we all know his wife who teaches at a so-called Christian school doesn’t have the capacity.
For Pence to be so religious, how does he condone his stone-cold liar for a boss who recently said, “When during the campaign, I would say ‘Mexico is going to pay for it,’ obviously, I never said this, and I never meant they’re gonna write out a check, I said they’re going to pay for it. They are.”
In case you forgot, starting on the presidential campaign trail in 2015, Trump repeatedly said Mexico would pay for the wall. He once wrote in a memo, “It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year.” Fortune.com reported Trump said Mexico will pay for the wall at least 20 times since 2015.
Pence truly needs a come to Jesus moment.
