It seems that Trump is intent on burning every single bridge in his presidency. Even those that truly matter.
Finally, Mike Pence is joining Donald Trump in the media for “Things I should Not Have Said”. Since the Trump administration took control in Washington, Pence has kept a low profile. For the most part, VP Mike Pence has had the luxurious position of balancing out the fiery rhetoric and off the cuff remarks of his boss, Trump.
The Vice President has basically tried to smooth over the rough relationship boss Trump has established with the media and the entire country. It’s been a good cop / bad cop approach thus far.
However a bright light was recently shone on Mike Pence and his position (personal and political) on the gay community. According to Mother Jones, Trump revealed that Pence is certainly not a fan of gay rights and gay citizens. In a conversation regarding gay rights, Pence was singled out by President Trump.
Trump referenced Pence and stated, “Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!” Certainly not the image that Pence wants to portray of himself and certainly not flattering toward the Trump administration as it struggles to make America greater.
Pence is well known for his support of far right conservative politics. He has based the majority of his political opinions on his personal beliefs and faith. His religious beliefs do not support the gay rights movement and he has taken that approach straight to the White House and is using his position to have serious impact on the progression and acceptance of the gay community in the United States. It is even public record that Pence has adamantly been in favor of “…supporting the use of taxpayer money for gay conversion therapy.”
Trump and Pence ran on a political platform that promised to “Make America Great Again”. Do they really think their actions and words reflect greatness? This dynamic duo is leading America down a path of regression. They seem to continually desire to turn the clock back fifty or more years on any progress the United States has made socially, culturally, or politically. And they apparently like to alienate certain aspects of the American populace. One thing is evident, the Trump-Pence White House is certainly uniting Americans. The problem is that America is becoming more united against the Trump-Pence White House!
