Name Calling Has No Place in Public Life

When you're as accomplished as Mike Pence, name calling is beneath you...

When you're as accomplished as Mike Pence, name calling is beneath you...

This is the whole fucking joke.

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?

You don't.

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'.
