Of course Pence has only marginally more credibility than Trump

Pence's hair has more credibility than Trump's. But when you've said that you've done.

"At a pre-inaugural press conference, Donald Trump said no one from his team was in contact with Russians during the campaign. 

Asked if anyone with Trump’s political operation had any contact with Russians during the election, Vice President Mike Pence said, “Of course not.” It wasn’t Pence’s only bogus denial on this. 

Kellyanne Conway, asked about the possibility of communications between the Republican campaign and Russians, said, “Absolutely not.” She added the conversations “never happened” and any suggestions to the contrary “undermine our democracy.” 

On the same issue, Hope Hicks said, “There was no communication between the campaign and any foreign entity during the campaign.” 

Sarah Huckabee Sanders added, “This is a non-story because, to the best of our knowledge, no contacts took place.” 

Reince Priebus said, “Of course, we didn’t interface with the Russians.”

"No puppet. No puppet." Right, Trump toadies?

Of course there was collusion between Trump, his campaign and the Russians. Big time.

Mr Pence is the head cheerleader of the Trump Administration ... that is what’s expected of him. He is the second in command of purveying fake news, disinformation and misinformation.

Even before the shutdown began, Pence was in an awkward spot in the wall debate — quite literally. When Trump hosted then-incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer at a heated Oval Office meeting in December that ended with the president saying he'd be "proud" to own a government shutdown, a stone-faced Pence sat by, speechless in his chair, drawing quips on social media comparing him to a statue or the "Elf on the Shelf."

Elf on the Shelf? I thought he looked like the Chump on the Stump...dissed by his Daddy Trump....

Look at what an abject FAILURE Pence was as governor of Indiana! Utterly abhorrent.

Look at what an abject FAILURE Pence was as governor of Indiana! Utterly abhorrent.

I think he also fostered a serious disease outbreak in Indiana because of poor leadership.

With all of Pence's faults, he's a heck of a lot better than that idiot Tim Kaine who Hillary picked as her VP.
