(THE FEDERALIST) – The New York Times' Frank Bruni really upped his game this week. In an atrociously brutal piece, he called Vice President Mike Pence a "holy terror," claiming he's multiple degrees more sinister than President Trump, the otherwise most sinister person on the planet. Bruni actually warns the best case against impeaching Trump is the much greater danger of Pence.
Think about that a moment though. For all the venom and apocalyptic hysteria being spewed at everything Trump has ever said, done or probably even thought – and there is plenty there of concern – there is someone even "worse" than this president. Bruni makes Chicken Little seem measured.
So what makes Pence so evil, other than the fact that he is, as Bruni has it, "self-infatuated," "a bigot," a "liar" and "cruel"? Pence's original and most damning sin is that he's a Christian who actually believes what Christians actually believe. Imagine that.
