Pence is someone to look out for. He knows how to play his cards right and how to hit hard. This interview is awesome.
Even when he’s being low-key, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence is on the offensive.
After manhandling the Democrats’ clearly outclassed vice presidential pick Tim Kaine last week, Pence has turned his fire on the mainstream media, which have ramped up efforts to hype a “civil war” between Republican nominee Trump and his party’s leadership.
And the message from Trump’s wingman was clear: Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy, and the media’s blatant favoritism, just aren’t flying.
In an interview from Iowa with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday, Pence said the continuing streams of hacked Clinton-related emails being published by WikiLeaks are showing the Democrat candidate for what she is – a fundamentally dishonest politician.
The leaks are “pulling back the curtain on the fact that Hillary Clinton is different in private than she is in public,” Pence noted.
With a Midwestern flair for understated humor, the Indiana governor deftly destroyed Clinton’s lame excuse during Sunday’s presidential debate that Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, had also shifted his wording to suit his audience. It was only one line out of the interview, but it summed it up nicely.
“As a member of the party of Lincoln, I prefer that Dishonest Hillary not associate herself anymore with Honest Abe,” Pence said.
