Vice President Pence has a growing credibility problem

By Aaron Blake May 18 at 1:14 PM

There are more than a few people who look at Vice President Pence and see President Pence possibly sooner than later. For wistful Democrats, it would be the end result of President Trump stepping aside or being impeached; for wistful Republicans, some dream of a more serious, less error-prone Republican president actually succeeding at passing a conservative agenda.

But as The Post's Abby Phillip began documenting last week, Pence has hardly been immune from Trump's foibles and from saying untrue things about them. And now twice in the past week, his defenses of the White House he serves in have been pretty directly contradicted in ways that seriously call into question his credibility.

Below are three big instances in which Pence said something that turned out to be highly misleading at best and clearly false at worst, starting with the newest one.

1) Michael Flynn's status as a foreign agent for Turkey

1. I suspect that when the poo hits the fan, it will be covering a wide area

This is going to be a very messy process, but also a much needed one.

3. His self righteousness belies how dirty he is

I've been saying for weeks, he needs to be investigated.
He has lied over and over and it is provable.

Maybe he is already being investigated, as it can be tied to the Russian cover up.

The problem is that these Repubs are continuing to damage our country while these investigations are ongoing. These guys should never have been there anyway.

5. Making deals - don't let him do it

Don't let Pence make any "deals" with Trump the way Gerald Ford made with Nixon.
Ford secretly agreed to pardon Nixon for all Watergate offences immediately after he resigned.
I mean it all happened on the same day.

The very day Ford was sworn in as POTUS his first act was to pardon Nixon. We didn't even hear about it until it was already done. Somebody has to step in and prevent that from happening.

Take away Pence's ability to make secret deals before he's POTUS. Or nullify any deals that he doesn't have the power to make. That would greatly decrease Trump's chances of walking away from this. It must be done now.

6. He needs to go down along with Flynn, Sessions, and Trump.

 

They lie without fear.

7. Pence is BY FAR my least favorite Trump crony.

He's a slithering snake.

Lies when his mouth is moving, but covers himself in this cloak of "christianity".

I actually prefer (for lack of a better word) Trump because he shows you who he is at all times...no pretending.

Pence is the most dangerous person in that crew in terms of ability to change our lives for the worse. He'll put on a show of piety for the camera while insidiously ramming thru horrific legislation cloaked as "reforms".

He's the biggest threat.

I pray he gets caught in the Russia-gate net too.

His work will take much longer to fix.

8. You're assuming he had credibility to begin with. It only

existed among radical RWers.

9. I noticed today that everyone on MSNBC is still giving Pence cover.

When they talk about Flynn they always say "He lied to Pence".

No He Didn't! Pence lied to the American people as he was in on it from the day he joined the Trump campaign.

10. Lying for Jebus.

It's not a lie if you think it will make the world a more Christian place. Scott Walker has talked about these kind of lies too.

11. It's about damn time the press et al. started looking hard at Pence

I think he's stepped into this pigsty and thought he could tippy-toe thru it without getting dirty. Wrong.

12. Something I have always noticed about people who wear their religion on their sleeve -

they always seem to be hiding some deep, dark secret. It's obvious that he's corrupt, but I don't think we quite know the depth of his corruption and perversion.

13. Can we declare the November 2016 election void and start all over again?





Just wishing out loud.
