Sometimes, the truth will out despite the best attempts to hide it. Mike Pence had his moment of truth, and it was televised.
During an interview on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence had an unplanned moment of truth. What started out as the answer to a question posed by Williams regarding an additional accusation of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump morphed into an attack on Hillary Clinton. Only it didn’t quite come out that way.
What Pence said was:
“It’s truly remarkable to me that unsubstantiated allegations against my opponent have gotten so much media attention and yet this avalanche of hard evidence, documented evidence … blah blah blah.”
Never mind that his opponent is not Hillary Clinton, since Pence isn’t at the top of the Republican ticket (a little Trump envy maybe?), which is a Freudian slip in its own right. He continued with a laundry list of things like Benghazi and everything that has been thrown around, dissected, discredited and committee hearing’d to death.
He obviously misspoke, but in doing so, Mike Pence defended Hillary Clinton. Oh, the irony.
His statement starts at 4:20 (and isn’t that ironic as well?)
