A piece was published by The Washington Post last week which gives insight into Vice President Mike Pence’s marriage. In some ways, much ado was made about nothing because the article details the closeness the couple shares but family and friends describe his wife Karen as the Pence family ‘prayer warrior’ even though her husband works for a pussy grabbing narcissist. Trump reportedly consulted her in critical campaign moments. Karen The Christian was reportedly upset over the Access Hollywood tape but defended Trump anyway.
In 2002, Mike Pence said that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either. That point sent people into a frenzy, most likely because of the hypocrisy – she stands beside the newly minted ‘president,’ too while pretending there is no problem with Trump’s moral code.
At any rate, Mike Pence tried to make a jokey joke about all of this during a stop in Ohio. “She’s really sorry she couldn’t be with us today. She already had dinner plans,” Pence said.
The vice-president laughed at his own joke a couple of times. The article in the Post notes that Karen is “a force behind her husband’s socially conservative stances” and that includes his staunch opposition to same-sex marriage and the religious freedom law he signed as governor of Indiana. Due to the couple’s faith as ‘Christians,’ they just can’t accept a loving couple getting married and sharing a life together if they are gay — but working closely with a man who advocates for sexual assault is OK with both of them.
So, he made a joke which wasn’t funny while his boss is creating chaos. We’ll bet he thinks that’s funny, too. We’d tell Mike to not give up his day job since his skills as a comedian are lacking, but we really, really want him to resign from his day job.
