Donald Trump said Mike Pence wanted to 'hang all the gays'

On 'SNL,' Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump Can't Stay On Message Either

President Donald Trump has reportedly said he believes, "jokingly", his VP Mike Pence wants to "hang all the gays".

But, according to a longtime associate, Trump also likes to "let Pence know who's boss". Two additional anonymous sources confirmed Trump's mocking of Pence, providing their own story about how Trump would seemingly talk down to the Vice President. During a meeting with a legal scholar, Trump belittled Pence's determination to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The scholar said that if Pence succeeded, many states would probably legalise abortion on their own. He discussed getting rid of "everything Obama did", from health insurance to the Iran deal to vegetables; he repeatedly called Beck Bennett's Mike Pence to ask him to walk out of places like a National Football League game and a Starbucks; he insulted "liddle itty-bitty" Sen.

When the conversation turned to gay rights, Trump also criticized Pence-whose record on equality issues is criticized heavily by advocacy groups.

One Trump campaign staffer also told The New Yorker that Trump used to ask people leaving meetings with Pence, "Did Mike make you pray?".

Iraqi forces 'launch major Kirkuk operation'
The referendum was held in three autonomous provinces of Iraqi Kurdistan, but also in nearby Kurdish-held areas including Kirkuk. An Iraqi military official denied that troop movements around Kirkuk were part of an all-out assault on the Peshmerga.

The President took the opportunity to crack a joke about Pence's opposition to gay rights. "You see?" Trump asked Pence. For starters, hate crimes against the LGBTQ community have in the past (and still today) resulted in deaths and other acts of harm toward individuals who were simply exercising their rights to be who they want to be.

The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the report.

Mayer's whole piece in this week's issue of the New Yorker is worth reading in full.

While critics have long called for the impeachment of Donald Trump over his outrageous behaviour as President of the United States, the prospect of ultra-conservative Vice President Mike Pence taking his place seems even worse. One of the President's allies, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, told the New Yorker that he's anxious what kind of president Pence would be, noting his alignment with the conservative billionaire Koch brothers.
