UM….Mike Pence really said this…

Just like the RNC earlier today, Mike Pence is now criticizing Obama for doing exactly what his own running mate has been doing all along:

NBC NEWS – Mike Pence chastised President Obama on Friday for indirectly referring to Donald Trump as a demagogue, saying – perhaps ironically – that “name calling” has no “place in public life.”

But on Friday, Pence, responding directly to the president’s comments about Trump at the Democratic convention on Wednesday, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt: “I don’t think name calling has any place in public life, and I thought that was unfortunate that the president of the United States would use a term like that.”

Pence’s remarks backed up against his own running mate’s use of derogative nicknames over the last year on the campaign, including: “Little Michael Bloomberg”, “Crooked Hillary” [Clinton], “Corrupt [Tim] Kaine”, “Liddle Marco [Rubio]”, “Lyin’ Ted” [Cruz], “Crazy Bernie” [Sanders], “Goofy” [Elizabeth Warren] and “Low Energy Jeb” [Bush].

The president took a pass at the Republican nominee in his primetime convention address on Wednesday and didn’t attach the “demagogue” characterization directly to Trump.

“Anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end,” Obama said.

Pence, who vowed early in his career to not run campaigns fueled by personal attacks, has yet to take hold of Trump-created nicknames for his own use on the campaign trail.

What is he thinking? Has he not been paying attention to Trump for the last year?

Heck Trump has been name-calling TODAY even!

This is just another example of why I said that Pence, who i like, is not a good fit for Trump. He can’t even criticize the opposition without criticizing his own running mate.

This election is terrible. Absolutely terrible.
