Get to know Mike Pence (though you might regret it)


Donald Trump rightly gets a huge amount of attention for his horrendous rhetoric. But his running mate Governor Mike Pence has actually done the kinds of reprehensible things that Trump only talks about. He may appear relatively harmless in comparison, but don’t let exceeding that very low standard reassure you.

In anticipation of tonight’s one and only vice presidential debate, a few things you should know about Mike Pence:

This is only scratching the surface, but it’s more than enough to show that like Trump, he has no business being anywhere near the White House. It’s additionally disturbing when you remember that Donald Trump has already more or less promised to hand off all the duties of the president to his VP.

  1. Jesus! This post was extremely informative, especially because I knew nothing about Mike Pence. I’m unfortunately not old enough to vote, but it’s always good to know these kinds of things about those who could soon be one of the political leaders of this country. Great post!

    1. Thanks! He hasn’t really been a national figure, and then he seems reasonable to people in comparison to Trump, so a lot of people have no idea just how heinous his record has been. I know people in Indiana are glad he ran for VP because it means he can’t run for governor again!
