While President Trump is being denounced for his vile efforts to whitewash bigotry, Vice President Mike Pence is trying to skitter under the radar.
"President Trump's leadership inspires me every single day," Pence says.
What about the days when Trump defends and incites racist violence? Even Secretary of State Rex Tillerson remarked that "Trump speaks [only] for himself." When a journalist asked Pence, he dodged the question.
What about the days when Trump threatens nuclear war, or esclates the war on Afghanistan?
Or the day when Trump pardoned a Sheriff for illegal racist targeting?
What about the days when Trump removes environmental protections or hurricane preparedness?
Or the days when he tries to ban Muslims from entering the country?
What about the day when Trump set up a commission to suppress voting?
Or the days (every day of his presidency so far) when Trump accepts domestic and foreign payments ("emoluments") in violation of the U.S. Constitution?
Are those days when Pence feels inspired by Trump's leadership or not?
Demand that Pence directly say whether he agrees with Trump's comments on Charlottesville and other key issues.
The silences and utterances from Vice President Pence are dangerous and despicable.
