According to Mike Pence, millions of Hispanics are going to the polls to vote for Donald Trump even though he began his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants “rapists.”
Yeah, and Pope Francis is a Presbyterian.
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Pence told host Chris Wallace:
“The truth is that Hispanic Americans have the same concerns that every other American does. We want to get this economy moving again. We want our country to be safe. I was just down in Miami this last weekend, saw overwhelming support for Donald Trump…in this hemisphere…”
Hey, Mike, I thought supposedly religious people like you weren’t supposed to take mind-altering substances, but clearly you are smoking some killer weed.
Wallace then reminded Pence:
“Hispanics are voting early in big numbers in a number of states. Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada. Are you worried that the polarizing remarks that your running mate, Donald Trump, has made since his opening announcement may come back to beat him?”
No, Pence asserted, he’s seen them at campaign rallies and talked to them on the stump. Which led Wallace to ask:
“So you think all those Hispanics, sir, are coming out to vote for Trump and not for Clinton? Really?”
Pence had the nerve to lay this condescending line of bullshit on the Fox News host:
“I literally saw it, I stopped by and had some Cuban coffee at a classic stop in Miami. Karen and I had a hard time getting through the place with people that were enthusiastic about Donald Trump’s stand for a stronger America.”
Mike, they were excited because you were there spending some of your money. The minute you left they laughed behind your back and pulled the lever for Hillary Clinton. Really, Mike, you need to lay off the hallucinogens, man.
Apparently Pence thinks that even though his running mate has gone out of his way to insult Latinos, they’re gonna put that behind them and vote for him anyway. Sorry, Mike, but that’s not how things work in the real world. You and Donnie are in for a rude awakening on Tuesday night.
