When asked about Donald Trump’s “alleged” affair with adult entertainer Stormy Daniels, Mike Pence called the mountain of evidence “baseless allegations.” Oh well, I’m sure that the Christian crusader has always been so consistent. A nice video reminder has been floating around the interwebs today. In it we get to see a younger Mike Pence, when he was just a local Indiana radio host. Back in the 1990s, Pence made quite a few statements and wrote quite a few columns about then President Bill Clinton and the Monica Lewinsky affair and impeachment. There’s a video of Pence on his “Mike Pence Show,” in May of 1997, explaining how the Ten Commandments are not negotiable.
I, for one, believe that the Seventh Commandment contained in the Ten Commandments is still a big deal. It’s the most important promise you’ll ever make. And holding people accountable to those promises and holding people accountable to respecting the promises that other people make to me. What what could possibly be a bigger deal than that in this country?
“If our leaders flinch at this responsibility, they would do well to heed the Proverb ‘if a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked,'” he added. “Our leaders must either act to restore the luster and dignity of the institution of the Presidency or we can be certain that this is only the beginning of an even more difficult time for our land. For the nation to move on, the President must move out.”
“If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous.
“Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of all of our highest hopes and ideals and values. To demand less is to do an injustice to the blood that bought our freedoms.”
Mike Pence is that nutjob that came up with a theory that Disney’s Mulan was an attempt to get women into the military. Read if you don’t believe me. The important thing to know about Mike Pence is that he is all of the deadly sins he so shakes his fist against. He is willing to look at and be complicit in, not simply the graft and criminal enterprise which is the Trump White House, but Trump’s transparent lack of morality—by any religion’s standard. The reason Mike Pence is willing to do all that is because Mike Pence wants power. He wants glory. He’s a vain, vain man who wants Americans to do what he says.
While I think Donald Trump’s moral turpitude is grotesque, I don’t believe having an affair is a reason to be impeached or leave office. Donald Trump should be in jail for everything else he’s been apart of, and that’s why he shouldn’t be in office. Mike Pence is a disgrace and I hope, for his sake, there really isn’t a Christian God in the image Pence claims to believe; because if there is, Mike Pence will be spending eternity swimming in a lake of fire. Watch a man dig a hole that he plans to bury his soul in down below.
