tldr:
"When Mike Pence was asked to respond to an 11-year-old girl's questions about body image and female objectification, the Republican vice presidential nominee responded by talking about foreign policy."

I dislike Pence, but he doesn't have many options here -- what's he supposed to say? "Yeah, the guy on the top of my ticket makes women feel bad and we're all ashamed of his comments."

He cannot say that. What's he supposed to do but pivot?

He could be a decent human being and disavow his running mate, then stop campaigning.

If he was going to do that then he never would have been his running mate in the first place. It's not like we didn't already know that Trump was a horrible person in the first place.

A friend of mine who is extremely conservative mentioned that when Pence was picked as the running mate that Pence seemed like a good conservative pick but anyone who considers Trump qualified to be president automatically disqualifies themselves as being qualified also.
He said that back in July.

Sorry but this nonsense is exactly what Pence signed up for. He should have known better.

My favourite part of his answer:

Quote:
The weak and feckless foreign policy that Hillary Clinton promises to continue has literally caused areas of the world to spin apart.


Really, though? Maybe I'm overly pedantic/ underexposed to the hyperbole of the US elections, but I'm not sure the misuse of the word 'literally' is helping him there.

Australia has moved 5 feet, so it's probably Obama's fault.

Obama is like, literally tectonic, he's seismic, he's right off the richter scale!
