Mike Pence chastised President Obama on Friday for indirectly referring to Donald Trump as a demagogue, saying — perhaps ironically — that "name calling" has no "place in public life."
Pence, responding directly to the president's comments about Trump at the Democratic convention on Wednesday, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt: "I don't think name calling has any place in public life, and I thought that was unfortunate that the president of the United States would use a term like that."
How do you respond to that?
The Onion can't keep up with these people. Satirists can't maintain any semblance of a cohesive thought. We're in Mel Brooks territory. There's no point in calling attention to the absolute hypocrisy of a man chosen to run with Donald Trump who says, in public, "name calling has no place in public life."
I got nothin'.
