People Can’t Get Over Mike Pence’s Latest 'Ridiculous' Praise Of Donald Trump

“Do you think these guys wake up in the morning and say to themselves 'What is the craziest thing I can say in defense of the boss today?'" wrote journalist Mehdi Hasan.

Vice President Mike Pence raised eyebrows with his latest praise of President Donald Trump, which critics described as “ridiculous” and “embarrassing.”

“I always tell people that to know President Trump is to know someone whose word is his bond,” Pence claimed Thursday during a “Life Wins!” event in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Twitter users quickly reminded Pence of the thousands of lies that Trump has told throughout his time in office.

“Do you think these guys wake up in the morning and say to themselves ‘What is the craziest thing I can say in defense of the boss today?’” asked Al Jazeera presenter Mehdi Hasan.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) weighed in as well.

“This is a ridiculous statement,” he tweeted. “It would make more sense with a laugh track.”
