Republicans, especially since Donald Trump came into the White House, are now better known for their hypocrisy and spinelessness than almost anything else. All of the values that they claimed to uphold so strongly went out the window with Trump’s presidency, and his Vice President isn’t making things any better.
Vice President Mike Pence has been extremely outspoken about his extreme religious beliefs, and can’t stand when anyone points out the fact that the VP and his family are complete hypocrites. This was recently brought up by Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, and now Pence and his wife Karen are having a full-blown meltdown over it.
In a recent statement to Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, Pence’s wife fired back at Buttigieg and whined about how she was being “attacked” for her religious beliefs:
I think in our country we need to understand you shouldn’t be attacked for what your religious beliefs are and I think kids need to learn that at a young age that this is OK, what faith people have; we don’t attack them for their faith.”
She also claimed that Buttigieg was only saying those things to “get some notoriety.” Pence and his wife are clearly threatened by the fact that Buttigieg, who is openly gay, called them out for their disgusting bigotry. Buttigieg had said:
Speaking only for myself, I can tell you that if me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade. [T]hat’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. If you’ve got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
And Trump wasn’t off the hook, either. Buttigieg trashed the entire Republican Party and the religious conservatives who continue to support the president despite his immoral character, abuse and exploitation of women, and highly un-Christian behavior. You can watch Buttigieg put conservatives on blast below:

Buttigieg is merely exposing the truth, and we all know Republicans can’t stand that.
