Mike Pence just said he fully supports Trump’s racist comments, ‘I stand with the President’

In case you were wondering how Mike Pence feels about Donald Trump’s horrendous comments regarding the white nationalist rally that happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, he just said that he’s he’s A-OK with them.

Pence, who it is looking increasingly likely will become our next President if/when #45 is impeached, has been in South America meeting with leaders in various countries all week. He was asked about Charlottesville at a conference in Chile earlier this morning.

“What happened in Charlottesville was a tragedy, and the president has been clear on this tragedy and so have I,” Pence told reporters. “I spoke at length about this heartbreaking situation on Sunday night in Colombia, and I stand with the president and I stand by those words.”

Did you catch that, folks? He stands with the president and his words.

What were those words, exactly? Here’s a snippet:

What about the alt-left that came charging at–Excuse me–What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?

You had a group on one side that was bad. And you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. You had a group – you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.

As Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino told The New York Times, comparing the violence perpetrated on both sides is like “comparing a propeller plane to a C-130 transport.”

“Using the fact that some counter-protesters were, in fact, violent, creates a structural and moral false equivalency that is seriously undermining the legitimacy of this president,” Professor Levin added.

And as former GOP nominee for President Mitt Romney explained on Twitter:

In his response today, Pence also had the audacity to say he and his family are “praying” for Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was killed.

Pence’s office said he will be ending his South American trip early and returning to Washington tomorrow to attend the president’s meeting at Camp David.

    Well, the little piss ant has no choice does he? They must’ve both received a call from the grand master himself (David Duke) reminding them again of the money he threw at the hate filled campaign that got them in office.

    Pence, you must be in serious pain. When another man has you by the balls like this, it must make you feel like less of a man. Jesus help us!

  • Paco

    And this surprises who?

    The Republican Party is aligned with racists. Kick them out and save yourselves

  • KaiserVonScheiss

    Lies. Nothing Trump said was racist. He was right to condemn both side. One side has neo-nazis and the other side has antifa. They are commies. They are both collectivist and support some version of identity politics.

    And Mitt Romney is just dense. Does he not realise that antifa would deprive him of his private property and throw him in a gulag, if not kill him for being a “fascist”?

    This is antifa:

    They look peaceful, don’t they?

    Why won’t any of the talking heads in the media condemn them? Why do they only condemn the alt-right? Commies have killed millions, and both the nazis and commies support political violence.

    • Kieran

      There is good reason ROMNEY WON the Presidency and TRUMP went down to a CRUSHING DEFEAT at the hands of the American people.

    • Brody

      The talking heads in the media don’t condemn (or even address) the violence of the left because they themselves have a leftist agenda. But, I suspect you knew that already.

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @Brody

      The irony is that antifa would censor the press and throw them in the gulag. Antfa aren’t big on the first amendment.

    • Kangol

      Because Antifa killed all of how many people this weekend? Oh, that’s right. NONE.
      ZERO. ZILCH.

      Meanwhile, one of your white supremacist gang mowed down an innocent woman. Why don’t you condemn him on here? Why won’t you condemn the Nazis chanting hateful crap about Jews, the KKK scum, the Evropa wannabes who want ethnic cleansing, all of it? Why won’t you condemn it?

      And why don’t you condemn all of the white supremacist murderers, who have committed more mass slaughter in the US than any other group since 1995? No Black Lives Matter activists, no Antifa, NO ONE but your right-wing white supremacist pals, who were chanting homophobic slogans in Charlottesville, have killed as many people over here. Are you going to condemn them? Will Trump? Will FoxNews?

    • amigay

      The alt right complaints about leftie’s attacks is kinda funny. Wasn’t it Melania who said when Trump is attacked he fights back?

      What’s good for the goose….?

    • mhoffman953

      @Kangol

      “Because Antifa killed all of how many people this weekend? Oh, that’s right. NONE.”

      So that’s the basis you have for acceptance of political violence – as long as they don’t kill anyone the violence, assault, and destruction of property is okay.

      Just because Antifa didn’t kill anyone this weekend or the past 30 violent protests they have done this year alone doesn’t mean they couldn’t have killed someone. Just look at how many cops BLM sympathizers have killed or the crazed leftist who opened fire on Republicans at a charity baseball event. After the lunatic nearly killed a congressman, the left justified it and many commenters on here defended it by saying it was motivated by the congressman’s voting record.

      You seem very charged to have people condemn fringe groups on the right, which they have done numerous times over but why won’t you condemn Antifa, BLM, and the fringe groups on the left?

      You cite some slate article as if only white supremacists commit murder. Looking through that list, I’m pretty sure more people died in Chicago in the past 8 years than the entire list combined. Over 60 cops died in 2016 from BLM inspired ambushes or incidents. Will you condemn that violence? Obviously not since you seem to defend Antifa by stating they haven’t killed anyone yet – they just violently assault and nearly kill people, which seems to be your justification.

    • DCguy

      You can tell how desperate the anti-lgbt Trump Trolls are about this story. Multiple screenames of Mo Bros are on here supporting each other. At least 3 in this thread.

    • BigWill

      Look at Kaiser and Mo all conversin’ with each other and everything!

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy

      You never have a real response. You always accuse everyone of having multiple screen names. I guess you follow the quote of your hero, “accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.”

      I think the other people on here were right when they said you sniff poppers before you post. You must’ve gotten a new bottle of jungle juice

    • KaiserVonScheiss

      @Kangrol

      I guess political violence is A-OK as long as no one dies. So is it fine when the set fires to cars, hit people over the head with bike locks, and throw M-80s at people?

      What about beating journalists just because they are there trying to film?

    The “gay community” needs to work to IMPEACH President Trump so we can get President Pence.

    • Jaxton

      Ha – that would be hilarious. I honestly think gay men are so nutty, they could actually replace a gay- friendly President with one who is less so.

      Nuts in the gay community are not rare.

    • ParkerSparx

      Gay friendly?

    • Kangol

      Impeach them both!

  • Brody

    No, Mike Pence did not say he “fully supports Trump’s racist remarks.”
    More proof you can’t spell “gullible” without “lib.”

    • Xzamilloh

      Yeah, and you can’t spell “conservative” without “con”

    • Brody

      Xzamilloh –
      Touché, my friend.

    • DCguy

      Wow, Mo Bro, get your screenames consistent. This one was defending on one thread and now in this one is disputing.

      You should keep notes about what you have each screename say I guess because you’re failing here.

  • Jaxton

    Liberals are the biggest racists.

  • Jaxton

    The Democrats invented the KKK. It’s amazing that any black person would vote Democrat.

    • WindsorOntario

      Well, no Republican would pass a bill that would increase food stamps, Section 8, WIC, etc nor would any Republican make it so easy to get Disability/SSI that so many of these people are on – increasingly – for LIFE thanks to these ads during Divorce Court or those other idiotic talk shows saying how easy it is to get SSI for something frivolous like anxiety or ADHD.

      If they voted Republican they’d have to work and stay in school.

    • Paco

      Oh don’t stop there, @Jaxton

      And then the Republicans had their Southern Strategy to appeal to the racism of the southern white voters and welcomed them and the KKK into their party with opened arms. They also welcomed the religious right and adopted that group’s hatred of gays.

      The Democrats evolved on civil rights (which is what we fight for) and the Republicans regressed and only care about taking rights away from marginalized groups.

    • Kangol

      Yawn. We know, gurl. The two parties switched in beginning with FDR’s election in 1932, and the Dixiecrats, the sorts of people you clearly believe in, became Republicans beginning in the 1960s (Strom Thurmond) and then increasingly in the 1970s. So please, that old canard ain’t working over here. Also, the GOP has repeatedly voted against LGBTQ people. It’s amazing that any gay person would vote Republican. How’s that for you?

  • KiwiJello

    Good! He can go down with him as well.

  • Bob LaBlah

    As bad as I hate to say it Pence had no other choice. Had he, a reverend, did the right thing and condemn the speech it would have ignited an all out war between the WH and Capitol Hill. It would have proven what the world already knows, there is no leadership in the U.S. even with a GOP majority. We are now utterly directionless and to make matters even worse Pence just may have canceled his election bid for the presidency. Do you think Ted Cruz is not going to remind the public what ol’ Brother Pence didn’t do but he (Cruz) did do? (Cruz condemn the donnybrook, its organizers and spoke up about Trumps stupidity and not understanding the gravity of the matter). I thought for sure Pence would use this as his ticket to help with the inevitable 25th amendment being enacted for the first time but it doesn’t appear so. He blew it.

    • amigay

      He has a choice. He can have a moral compass or he can be a Republican. Can’t have both.

    • Bob LaBlah

      @amigay……….I say again with a heavy heart Pence had no other choice. Personally I believe a few of his cabinet members were ready to resign because of a WH out of control and a Hill without direction. We are a nuclear armed nation and the last thing we and the rest of the world need are riots in the streets fueled my a man vindictive man who knows its all over for him and a frustrated, low wage earning populace who don’t realize this guy is not only using them but laughing his rear end off at them for supporting him. Does Trump have any southerners in his business organization? What has he ever donated to that benefits southern white folks directly such as a hospital or a clinic in rural areas down here? This man has turned this country into the very thing he lied and said it was during the elections thru manipulation of the ignorant and Pence has no other choice at this moment but to support it or else we could just stumble across another mini civil war with the National Guard roaming the highways in a show of force if he doesn’t. I rest my case your honor.

  • Riley

    Mike Pence is the worse of lot, it’s very transparent he just like all Creeping Jesus’s who psychotically smoke and mirrors plays the people pleaser to be seen as being the good cop. When in reality he’s always welding a very sharp 18 inch knife in his right pocket ready to use it to stab anyone in the back faster than they could say their name.

  • amigay

    Pence has his nose so far up Trump’s ass, when Trump sneezes Pence farts.

  • RIGay

    Pence is the one who seeded Trumps staff with Bannon; no surprise there.

    I hope this snake gets his head caught in the mower of justice.

  • DCguy

    The Republicans and the right wing are feeling the backlash. You can tell by the panicked and hysterical posting going on here from them, throwing out everything from “What about THIS other group” to “He didn’t do anything racists” to “The Democrats are “Insert whatever fake racist story you want”.

    They’re feeling the heat.

    As for the post. Gee, what a shock that a politician who is such a bigot he didn’t mind tanking the economy of his entire state just to attack lgbt people is also a racist?!!?!? SHOCKER!!!!

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy

      “throwing out everything from “What about THIS other group” to “He didn’t do anything racists” to “The Democrats are “Insert whatever fake racist story you want”.”

      But President Trump didn’t do anything racist. Provide a quote where he supported racists groups

      Here is what the President said, “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.”

      Not sure where you are getting that he said anything racist. You’re either a partisan hack or you’re just a willfully ignorant queen. I think those poppers are really frying your brain this time, probably burning your nose too

    • Brody

      mhoff –

      Why do you bother?
      This “commenter” who claims he’s a “guy” from “DC” is conspicuously unhinged and will never see the proverbial forest for the trees. Reasoning is not in his (or her—don’t want to be accused of using the improper pronoun) arsenal.

    • DCguy

      LOL!!! Dude, Mo Bro,

      Just an ideal, if you’re going to have two of your screenames post and then pretend to talk to each other. Don’t have them literally post within seconds of each other.

      Again, you right wing, anti-lgbt, racist trump troll must be terrified because you have been panicky all over all of those stories.

      You know that your King Putin and his boy Donald don’t look so good when Donny talks about good people in the Nazi and KKK.

      Hey Queerty, these screenames have proven that they are litterally only here to defend bigotry. You already banned the main screename twice. (BJ McFrisky, and then Mo Bro) Just pointing out that he’s got a bunch of sockpuppet names on here.

    • mhoffman953

      @DCguy

      Apparently the poppers are frying your brain so much that you think everyone who disagrees with you is the same person.

      Not much of a shocker that you and the intolerant leftist extremists want to censor and silence any opinion that is slightly different than your own. So much for honoring our founding fathers and their creation of the 1st amendment within the Bill of Rights, but you must believe it’s ok to deny people rights if it doesn’t fit your convoluted agenda

  • paul dorian lord fredine

    well i hope the two of you are happy standing in the shit pile he’s created.

  • He BGB

    It’s called survival. He knows which side his bread is buttered on

  • bobnla

    Pence didn’t say that…be honest, and don’t try to alter a story to make your agenda appear valid.

  • Berkleyguy

    If Trump resigns or is impeached, we must find Pence complicit as well. He CANNOT be President

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Pence is a liar.

  • Captain Obvious

    The Vice President to our Nazi in Chief is a racist homophobe?! NOOOO!!! Seriously where’s the shock?

    I do find it amusing that white people suddenly acknowledge racism still exists after a Nazi killed a white woman though. Like seriously? I can’t.

    • GayEGO

      I do love the white woman’s mother saying on the news that she will not talk to Trump. She was asked if she had anything to tell Trump and she said – “Think before you speak!”, something most of us know that Trump does not do – think!

  • GayEGO

    Remember Pence’s commit when Trump gets impeached so that he will go with Trump to……do I hear the sound of flushing down the hopper? :>)

    • 1EqualityUSA

      What if Ryan was so disgusted with these creatures that he refused to pardon them? Orange skin. Orange jumper. We’d never look at sunsets the same way
