Below is an article that stated President Donald Trump said several different things that all have to do with Vice-President Mike Pence’s Christian views. You can read the story to get all of what was said, but I want to focus on one part in particular.
Before I get to the meat of my remarks, let me make clear that I have no clue if President Trump actually said all of the things in the article. Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t – I have no clue, thus this article may not need to have been written – but even with that, many other things have been said about “My Man Mike” which brings back the the need of writing this back into legitimacy.
In the article, which used the New Yorker as it’s source, this line is used as the opening:
While I earlier said that I have no idea if Trump said the things listed in the article, I would stake my reputation on this statement. Mike Pence does NOT want all gay people to hang.
I know Mike Pence, and while he might not remember the few times that I had the pleasure of talking with him, I KNOW from personal experience talking with the former Indiana Governor that he would not and does not believe what is said to start the article below.
There are many negative and untrue reasons why things are written about Mike (yes he is down home enough that he likes to be called Mike). The first and biggest reason nasty and hateful things are written about him is that he is a Christian, he is not ashamed of that fact, and he leads with those two traits always in mind.
I have heard and have had him say to me directly – I’m a Christian, I’m a Conservative, and I’m a Republican; IN THAT ORDER!
It’s time that people that know the truth, which will then set you free, speak out and not let the hammering of Vice-President Pence and many other good Christians go by without defending them.
Trump joked Pence ‘wants to hang’ all gay people, New Yorker reports
President Trump once joked that Vice President Mike Pence “wants to hang” all gay people, The New Yorker reported Monday.
The publication also reports that Trump has mocked Pence for his views opposing abortion and LGBTQ rights.
Trump jabbed at Pence after a legal scholar told the pair that if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many states would probably legalize abortion.
“You see?” Trump reportedly said to Pence. “You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.”
And when the meeting began to focus on gay rights, Trump reportedly pointed to Pence, joking, “Don’t ask that guy — he wants to hang them all!”
