Double Trouble

One To Watch: Mike Hot-Pence Is The Short-Short-Wearin’ Politico We Need Now


If you’ve ever looked at Mike Pence and thought you’d like to see him in a pair of hot pants, today’s your lucky day. (Also, please take a few steps away from us.)

A gay man named Glen Pannell bears an uncanny resemblance to our soon-to-be Veep Creep, and he’s using that likeness to its best possible effect by trawling the New York streets in a pair of sky-blue short-shorts.

Unlike Mike Pence, however, Pannell’s alter ego “Mike Hot-Pence” collects money for Planned Parenthood. And he does it in all in a pair of really sexy hot pants, in case you somehow missed that part.

“I was really dejected after the election and spent a month as a prisoner of my Facebook feed,” he tells People“But then I decided to do something to make a difference and put my likeness to Pence to good use.”

For a series on his blog called “Times Square Weirdness,” writer Howard Sherman profiled the 51-year-old graphic designer, who explained the character was born on Halloween, when he decided to dress up as “Sexy Mike Pence.”

“Once I decided on jacket and tie for the top half and short shorts for the bottom half, the ‘Hot-Pence’ moniker popped into my head,” he told Sherman. “And that’s the origin story of Mike Hot-Pence.”

We hope Pannell is ushering in a new phase of left-leaning characters loosely based on our least favorite conversative creeplings.

A few possibilities off the top of our head:
