Vice President Mike Pence calls wife ‘Mother’
Creepy Christian Mike Pence has some strange ideas about women, and calls his wife “Mother.”
Earlier this year reports circulated that Pence refuses to eat alone with a woman or attend an event where alcohol is being served unless his wife Karen is present because of his extreme religiosity. However, in addition to these unsettling reports is the bizarre fact that Pence refers to his wife, Karen Pence, as “Mother.”
Rolling Stone reports:
While Mike Pence was governor, his relationship with the Democratic minority in the legislature was crap. Someone on his staff suggested having the Democratic leaders over to the governor’s mansion for dinner. The table was set for 20, but there were only around seven in attendance. One unlucky legislator stuck next to Pence tried to make conversation, but found even at dinner she couldn’t shift Pence off his talking points. Gov. Pence shouted to his wife, Karen, his closest adviser, at the other end of the table.
“Mother, Mother, who prepared our meal this evening?”
The legislators looked at one another, speaking with their eyes: He just called his wife “Mother.”
Maybe it was a joke, the legislator reasoned. But a few minutes later, Pence shouted again.
“Mother, Mother, whose china are we eating on?”
Mother Pence went on a long discourse about where the china was from. A little later, the legislators stumbled out, wondering what was weirder: Pence’s inability to make conversation, or calling his wife “Mother” in the second decade of the 21st century.
In a recent interview with Salon, legendary filmmaker John Waters roasted Pence for his bizarre behavior. Speaking with Amanda Marcotte about the current political situation, Waters declared:
The scary thing with Trump is that if anything does happen, Pence is way, way worse. And his wife is way, way, way worse than Pence. And he calls her “Mommy.”
Waters is correct. While Trump may be a crass and ignorant buffoon, Pence is much worse – a cold, cruel, religious extremist with dreams of a Christian theocracy.
Pence, who is fond of saying he is “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order,” is a conservative Christian nightmare who rejects the separation of church and state, and places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution.
In fact, Pence is anti-science, anti-women, and anti-LGBT. He is a radical religious extremist, a cold, cruel, Christian extremist. And if given the chance, he would turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.
Bottom line: Vice President Mike Pence is a dangerous and deranged Christian extremist who calls his wife “Mother.”
