WATCH: 4 Times Pence Wont Back Trump on Bizarre Wire Tapping Conspiracy

Donald Trump’s is losing credibility even with his own Vice President. Asked four separate times, Mike Pence refused to backup Donald Trump’s baseless accusation that Trump Tower was wire tapped during the election, instead repeating prepared talking points and dodging the question.

Watch here:
Pence: “I have certainly seen the press reporting about activities and president Donald Trump and I are confident that the congressional committees that are reviewing this will look at that in a bipartisan and a fair way. That and other issues but make no mistake, president Donald Trump are completely focused on the future.”  [WFTV-ORD (ABC), 3/8/17]

And here:
Pence: “Well, I’ve seen the press accounts of that, and I’m very confident along with the President and that the congressional committees reviewing all of these matters, regarding last year’s election will do that in a bipartisan and fair minded way. We look forward to looking at that issue, […]

Here Are At Least Four Times Trump And His Team Lied About Contact With Russia

Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump heaped praise on Vladimir Putin, defended the dictator’s actions, and repeated talking points like criticizing NATO that could have been written in the Kremlin. He even called on Russian hackers to release Hillary Clinton’s emails saying they will be “rewarded mightily by our press.”

Yet Trump and his team repeatedly cast doubt on reports of Russia’s interference in the election and vehemently denied that they had any contact with Russia during the campaign. That lie came crashing down last night in a bombshell New York Times report.

Here are at least four times we now know President Trump, Vice President Pence, and their top aides misled the American people about the campaign’s contact with Russia:

January 11, 2017: President Trump
CECILIA VEGA: Did you or anyone in your campaign have contact with Russia leading up to or during the campaign? Nothing at all?
DONALD TRUMP: […]

Pence Punts On Endorsing Trump-Backer Paul Ryan’s Speaker Bid

Speaker Paul Ryan has been a steadfast Donald Trump supporter, sticking with the Trump-Pence ticket throughout Trump’s calls for mass-deportation, mocking of veterans and people with disabilities, endorsements of torture and racial profiling, and even Trump’s bragging about sexual assault.

It seemed as though Paul Ryan couldn’t lose any more dignity — until now.

Asked several times whether he believed Ryan should be re-elected as Speaker of the House, Mike Pence punted — refusing to give Ryan, who’s squandered all of his credibility on backing Trump and Pence, so much as a vote of confidence.

There are plenty of Republicans who have disgraced themselves in standing by and defending Trump — Mitch McConnell certainly comes to mind — but has anyone done more self-inflicted damage as Paul Ryan?

Pence knows the real Donald Trump –> MeltdownMike.com

In Mike Pence’s judgment, Donald Trump — a raging sexist who brags about sexually assaulting women — is broad-shouldered and a bold truth-teller.

Other than a whole lot of zeroes, Donald Trump and I have a lot in common, Pence likes to brag. He tells it like it is.

“Last week, Mike Pence spent 90 minutes lying for and shamelessly defending Donald Trump’s racism, tax-dodging, self-dealing, praise for dictators, and sexism. And on the campaign trail, Pence routinely compares himself to Trump — so, it’s absolutely laughable for Pence to now claim to be scandalized to learn that Donald Trump is the chauvinistic embodiment of the Republican Party and Pence’s own attitude toward women.”

Senator Rubio Supports Lying, Hateful Presidential Ticket

Last night’s debate made it abundantly clear that there is no explanation for Donald Trump’s campaign of racism, and the only defense left is to lie and flat out deny some of the most offensive statements Trump has made.

Pence’s bold-faced lies last night provided a stark reminder that Marco Rubio not only supports a campaign predicated on hatred, racism and fearmongering – he also supports the blatant dishonesty that backs it up.

Marco Rubio is perhaps the strongest defender of Trump in the U.S. Senate. It’s been clear for months that Rubio doesn’t care about how many lies Trump and Pence throw around, he will support him to be commander in chief.

Senator Kelly Ayotte Supports Lying, Hateful Presidential Ticket

Last night’s debate made it abundantly clear that there is no explanation for Donald Trump’s campaign of racism, and the only defense left is to lie and flat out deny some of the most offensive statements Trump has made.

Pence’s bold-faced lies last night provided a stark reminder that Senator Kelly Ayotte not only supports a campaign predicated on hatred, racism and fearmongering – she also supports the blatant dishonesty that backs it up. Lying and hatred “absolutely” aren’t what makes a role model. Senator Ayotte may be too buy playing politics and promising her vote to Trump to realize that, but New Hampshire voters aren’t.

Liar, Liar, Pence on Fire. And We Have The Proof On Video.

Donald Trump’s policies are so dangerous and reckless that Mike Pence’s only defense intonight’s debate was to lie over and over again:

PENCE LIE: Trump never said that more nations should get nuclear weapons.

Trump said it at least three times.

PENCE LIE: Trump hasn’t broken his promise to release his tax returns.

Trump said repeatedly in 2014 and 2015 that he would release his returns if he were to run for President. He still has not released his tax returns.

PENCE LIE: Trump did not say that Vladimir Putin was a better leader than President Obama.

Trump has repeatedly praised Putin, and did indeed say he was a better leader than President Obama.

PENCE LIE: It’s nonsense to say that Trump and Pence are for mass deportation.

Trump has called for a deportation force, and mass deportation is the centerpiece of his immigration “plan.”

Trump-Pence: Broad-Shouldered Outsourcers

Pence wants to talk about “putting American workers in the back seat”? Here’s his and Trump’s abysmal record on outsourcing:

Mike Pence always mentions that he’s a “Christian, a conservative, and a Republican–in that order.” However, he conveniently leaves out “outsourcer.”

 

Pence has given taxpayer incentives to Indiana companies that ship jobs overseas and Trump has built his business on products that come from abroad.

 

Trump and Outsourcing

Trump has consistently profited off companies that outsource — including Carrier Corporation. That’s just the start of Trump’s hypocrisy on the issue. Essentially every Trump-branded product is (was, for the many now-defunct goods) manufactured overseas; from Bangladesh and Vietnam, to Honduras and Mexico.

Trump has also brought in thousands of foreign workers over the years, having sought “at least 1,100 foreign worker visas since 2000.” Even as he’s launched his presidential bid, Trump companies have continued to bring in foreign workers, including at […]

Pence Legislated Trump’s Sexist Attitudes and Anti-Women Policy Agenda

Pence tonight danced around coming clean on his and Trump’s anti-women agenda. But their record is clear. Trump apologist Mike Pence is billed as Donald’s “clean-up guy,” but the two are on the same page when it comes to substance — especially where Trump and Pence’s anti-women views and agenda are concerned.

In fact, when it comes to women’s issues, Mike Pence has actually legislated Donald Trump’s sexist rhetoric and anti-women policy positions.

In the 1990s, Pence said working women stunt their kids emotional growth; and while in Congress, Pence led the GOP charge on defunding Planned Parenthood. Mike Pence has been a hardline anti-choice opponent for decades, and he has no qualms about trumpeting his anti-women record.

Trump-Pence: Anti-Choice Extremists

Pence: Pence supported a zero-exception abortion ban, including where the life of the mother is at risk, and he cosponsored at least four “personhood” bills to that effect while he was […]

The Art Of Self-Dealing & Pay-For-Plays: Pence Still Defends Trump The Con Artist

Pence wants to talk charitable foundations and pay-to-play schemes? There’s only one foundation at issue that’s under investigation.

Mike Pence has lost all credibility by defending Donald Trump’s serious legal issues over bribing elected officials with his Trump Foundation. Only one presidential candidate has been fined by the IRS for using his Foundation in a pay to play scheme, and that’s Donald Trump.

On Monday, the Trump Foundation was ordered to cease fundraising by the New York attorney general. This latest development is unsurprising, considering that Trump’s used it as a slush fund. The GOP nominee has been taking other people’s money and spending it on personal giftspolitical pay-to-play bribes, and his for-profit company’s legal settlements for years.

Then there’s the presidential campaign that Mike Pence is second in command on. Once again, fueled by other people’s money that Trump used it to fill his […]
