"Is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing Donald Trump?"

Mayor Pete on Pence: "How would he allow himself to become the cheerleader for the porn star presidency? Is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing Donald Trump?"

I know that snips have been posted before of this but it is such a great takedown of Pence and his hypocrisy I thought it deserved it's own thread. This young man is so impressive. While I do think he may be too young and inexperienced to nominate, I have no doubt he would do a great job as President. His problem of course is that in Indiana he has little chance to win a higher office (and even his congressional district is very red). Like Beto I think it's unfair to expect him to win statewide office there; a Democrat coming close in Texas or Indiana is more impressive to me than winning in Massachusetts or California. Here's the CNN take on this;

He is getting a lot of cable buzz for much of the day for that succinct remark that deftly takes care of Trump AND the hiding-under-the-radar Pastor Pence.

If he has made it to a big office in Klan Indiana, I hope he can play nationally. I would worry about him going to homophobic red states.
