Donald Trump chose the right person to be his vice-presidential running mate because Mike Pence is just as heartless and cruel towards women and girls as he is.
On Thursday, Mike Pence was interviewed by anchor Scott Light of Columbus, Ohio’s 10TV. During the appearance, Pence was given the opportunity to not look like a total asshole when Light relayed to him an earlier comment made by an 11-year-old girl scout who told the station that Donald Trump’s remarks about women and their bodies “make me feel bad about myself.”
“There was a Girl Scout troop, came to our station the other day for a tour, and afterward, there was an 11-year-old girl who told our staff, and she said this completely unsolicited,” Light told Pence. “She was talking about Donald Trump’s words in campaign commercials. She said this: “When I hear those words and look in the mirror, they make me feel bad about myself.” Again, she said that totally unsolicited. What would you say to that 11-year-old girl?”
Indeed, what would Pence say to this little girl? After all, Pence has two daughters of his own so surely he had something to say to make this girl feel better. You know, like condemning Trump’s words and leaving the campaign instead of being a coward.
But, no. Instead, Mike Pence ignored the girl’s question entirely and talked about terrorism and how the girl will supposedly feel safe under a Donald Trump presidency despite the fact that Trump has an infatuation with hitting on girls her age.
“I would say to any one of my kids and any children in this country that Donald Trump and I are committed to a safer and more prosperous future for their family. The weak and feckless foreign policy that Hillary Clinton promises to continue has literally caused wider areas of the world to spin apart, the rise of terrorist threats that have inspired violence here at home, and we’ve seen an erosion of law and order in our streets. And we’ve seen opportunities and jobs evaporate and even leave Ohio and leave this country. I would say to any of our kids that if Donald Trump and I have the chance to serve in the White House, that we’re going to work every day for a stronger, safer and more prosperous America.”

Yeah, I’m pretty sure the 11-year-old girl isn’t worried about foreign policy. But I’m pretty sure she will remember how a Republican vice-presidential candidate treated her concerns when she is able to vote in 2024 Presidential Election.
