Vice President Mike Pence has come under attack after revealing himself to practice his marriage by Christian standards.
The Washington Post ran a story about Pence’s wife Karen on Tuesday where a statement from a 2002 article with the current vice president, was featured.
In 2002, Mike Pence told the Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.
If you read the left’s response to that on Twitter you’d think the vice president is some religious zealot and woman-hater.
This seems to be the tweet that got the liberal insanity rolling:
Mike Pence never dines alone w a woman not his wife, nor does he attends events w alcohol, w/o her by his side. https://t.co/BxfS0JzbAc

Like clockwork, the hyperbole, fake outrage and intolerance started poured in:
1/ If Pence won’t eat dinner alone with any woman but his wife, that means he won’t hire women in key spots.

The revolting thing about Pence’s no-meals-with-women rule isn’t prudishness. It’s that he’s limiting key professional opportunities to men.

Women are (quite literally) not at the table and cannot be in any important roles, whether when he was Indiana Gov, now VP, anywhere.

My takeaway from Pence refusing to dine alone w/a woman not his wife is here is a man who won’t hire, work with, or promote women. 1/2

Others compared it to Sharia Law.
Mike Pence won't eat with women who aren't his wife? Funny, I thought Trump fans were against the encroachment of #Sharia law in America.

People using strict religious beliefs to defend Mike Pence's inherent sexism are the exact people who say they don't want Sharia Law!

Control the wombs, women are just succubuses who drive men to sin, homosexuality is immoral, etc. We get it. Mike Pence promotes Sharia law.

If I had ZERO self-control & was aroused every single person with a vagina, I guess I'd do what Mike Pence does. Self-imposed Sharia Law.

Ironic when one considers that many on the left supported the Women’s March which was led, in part, by Sharia law supporter Linda Sarsour.
Not to mention that a man putting restrictions on himself has no resemblance to anything in Sharia law.
And the argument that he won’t hire women falls flat when you know he just received the Independent Women’s Forum’s “Working For Women” award for fighting for women’s economic rights.
It also doesn’t work after one takes a look at the vice president’s staff, that he announced in January.
In addition to Jen Pavlik, who serves as his deputy chief of staff, Pence announced the addition of the following key staff members:
Sarah Makin, Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs for the Vice President.
Andeliz Castillo, Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs for the Vice President.
Meghan Patenaude, Deputy Assistant to the Vice President and Director of Scheduling.
Kara Brooks, Deputy Assistant to the Vice President and Communications Director to the Second Lady.
Sara Egeland, Deputy Assistant to the Vice President and Policy Director to the Second Lady
Col. Andrea Thompson (U.S. Army – Retired), Deputy Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor to the Vice President.
The vice president also received a ton of support on social media.

Ha. Good one!
KellyAnne Conway put her feet on the couch, Donald Trump put ketchup on steak, & Mike Pence is into monogamy. So many scandals! The horror!

Chelsea's dad is an accused serial rapist, but Mike Pence is the weirdo.

Mike Pence: "Oh, you're going to mock me for being faithful? Watch me cast the deciding vote to defund your abortion factory"
— Sean Spicier (@sean_spicier) March 30, 2017
Leftists have no evidence of Mike Pence denying women opportunities. So they just assume it because they hate religious people.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 30, 2017
Liberals are making fun of Mike Pence for being heavily into monogamy. Yes, this is real life. Yes, this is where liberals are at today.
