REPORTER: “Do you agree with the President that there were good people among the white supremacist protesters and that there was blame to be had on both sides? And, more broadly, sir, do you believe that Confederate statues should be removed as is happening in many cities across the South, or do you agree with the President that the Confederate General Robert E. Lee should be considered in the same pantheon as George Washington? :
MIKE PENCE: “What happened in Charlottesville was a tragedy, and the president has been clear on this tragedy and so have I. I spoke at length about this heartbreaking situation on Sunday night in Colombia, and I stand with the president and I stand by those words.”
We might have to change Walking Bowl of Cream of Wheat to Pence-ildick.
Hmmm, who does Pence-ildick agree with: From THE HILL:
Vice President Pence on Wednesday said he stands by President Trump following criticism of his remarks blaming the violence during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., on “both sides.”
Trump was widely criticized by both Democrats and Republicans on Tuesday after he doubled down on his assertion that white nationalists and counterprotesters were both to blame for the violence at the rally, which was held to protest the removal of a Confederate statue.
At an impromptu press conference in Trump Tower, the president accused left-wing protesters of attacking white nationalists with “clubs.”
Trump’s comments drew praise drew praise from David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader who attended Saturday’s rally.
“Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa,” Duke tweeted.
If you wind up on the same side a David Dingleberry Duke, then you are on the wrong side. I’ve heard talking heads say that Pence-ildick had no choice. Bullshit! He can stand up, be a man and say that he can no longer serve with a Nazi/alt-right/KKK sympathizer. If he can’t do that, he not only is unfit to serve in any position in government, but he should be run out of the country and his citizenship revoked.
