Trump mocks Pence, says The New Yorker in a story picked up by the Post.
This article is going to merit a Trump Tweetstorm if it gains some staying power, like some of the stories about Trump and Tillerson. Picture Trump’s Tweets that would go along these lines: “Lies! Our great Vice President is doing a wonderful job. Fake news media is failing fast. Sad. Ignore.”
Even if the bare bones of the following story are true, there’s probably a lot of exaggeration.
No source for the claims made are offered.
President Trump routinely mocks Vice President Pence’s staunch Christian faith and once joked that there was no point in asking him about gay rights because “he wants to hang them all,” The New Yorker reported.
In a wide-ranging profile of Pence, the magazine pointed out that Trump likes to make sure his vice president is always aware of “who’s boss.”
During a discussion about gay rights, Trump motioned to Pence and said: “Don’t ask that guy – he wants to hang them all!”
Pence, who was raised a Catholic but later became an evangelical Christian with his wife Karen, is often the butt of Trump’s jokes.
When people meet with the president after stopping by Pence’s office, he will ask, “Did Mike make you pray?”
And during a meeting with a legal scholar, Trump trivialized Pence’s determination to overturn Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.
The adviser told them that if Roe v. Wade was overturned, many states would probably legalize abortion on their own.
‘You see?” Trump asked Pence. “You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.”
Trump sometimes comes across as mean, but the base doesn’t care so long as progress is being made in building the wall and discouraging immigration.
It’s pathetic that reporters are wasting their time on this trivia instead of flying to Las Vegas to investigate the suspicious contradictions that immediately appeared in the official story.
Reporters are nothing but gossip mongers today.
