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 […]

Another Mess Pence Can’t Clean Up: Trump’s Tax Dodges

Mike Pence is complaining about “higher taxes” on the wealthy few. Would he have Donald Trump pay less than for the $0 that he likely paid for nearly two decades? We now know that Trump lost one billion dollars in a single year, and may have gone nearly two decades without paying any taxes at all (a move he’d call “smart”). With that information already public, Trump’s continued refusal to release his full tax returns begs the question – what information in the remaining returns is so bad that he’s still set on hiding it?

One thing is clear – voters aren’t taking well to Trump’s refusal to release his returns. A new CNN poll shows that 8-in-10 Trump supporters believe that paying taxes is a “civic duty.” Trump won’t have an easy time explaining this one to his supporters, and until he releases his full tax returns, this […]

“Call Sean Hannity”

Pence claims to have the authority to talk foreign policy. But look at the top of his ticket, headlined by a total foreign policy amateur with an erratic, unpresidential temperament.

Better call Sean Hannity, because he’s the only person plausibly convinced by Mike Pence’s argument that Donald Trump can be trusted on foreign policy and counted on as an even-keeled commander in chief.

Donald Trump falls to pieces over mere tweets, and he’s been feuding with Rosie O’Donnell for 10 years because she made fun of his hair once.

This vindictive man-child who loves torture, “nuclear,” and dictators, cannot be trusted with leading the country and guiding its foreign policy doctrine. There’s no credible argument otherwise.

Here’s a taste of the absurdly alarming Trump Doctrine that no amount of Mike Pence clean-up can paper over:

 

Celebrating World Dictators. From Saddam Hussein to Kim Jong-Un, Trump has repeatedly expressed his admiration for world dictators, […]

Pence Is A Shameless, Yet Ineffective, Trump Apologist

It’s Mike Pence’s job to make Donald Trump look more “presidential” tonight, but he’s failed before he even started.

For months, Mike Pence has done nothing but agree with and defend Donald Trump’s sexism, bigotry, and fearmongering. And Pence is more than game to try spinning Trump’s self-dealing and pay-to-play (with other people’s money) scheming at the Trump Foundation.

But far from making Trump suddenly appear “presidential,” Pence’s desperate efforts to spin and normalize Trump’s racism and con artistry only serve to make Trump look unfit for office and Pence look, well, desperate.
