Chris Christie and Mike Pence get props for making cringe-worthy comments as we are now all a bit dumber. This evening, the management at a nonunion shop in Trump’s favorite Michigan County (Macomb), invited Trump to do his usual nonsense in front of 300 invited people among which there were perhaps a few members of the UAW to counter POTUS Biden’s appearance on a picket line.
Trump referencing his sex life during a 2016 primary debate didn’t seem too out of character. The same can’t be said for his former running mate.
On Wednesday night, Pence jumped on the opportunity to talk about how much he … loves his wife. Earlier in the debate, Christie said Biden was beholden to teachers’ unions because he was “sleeping with a member” of one. (First lady Jill Biden is a longtime educator.)
Pence returned to that minutes later, to talk about how much he, too, loves a particular teacher. “My wife is not a member of the teachers union, but I got to admit, I have been sleeping with a teacher for 38 years,” the former vice president said, which was met by stunned silence from the rest of the stage.
After it was done, moderator Stuart Varney dryly declared: “next subject.”
