Everyone needs a good dog
And The Tangerine Shitgibbon has found his in Mike Pence who will faithfully bark and growl at anyone who dares to upset his master.
Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday defended President Trump’s personal attack on the federal judge who blocked his travel ban on seven predominately Muslim countries, saying that the president’s remarks did not risk undermining the bedrock principle of the separation of powers.It is rather surprising to hear Mitch "The Turtle" McConnell speaking rationally but then Tangerine isn't feeding him treats like he does with his loyal pooch Pence.
Asked about Mr. Trump’s reference on Twitter to the “so-called judge” who ordered a stay of the president’s executive order, Mr. Pence said on NBC’s “Meet the Press”: “Well, look, the president of the United States has every right to criticize the other two branches of government. And we have a long tradition of that in this country.”
“The judge’s actions in this case,” Mr. Pence added, “making decisions about American foreign policy and national security, it’s just very frustrating to the president, to our whole administration, to millions of Americans who want to see judges that will uphold the law and recognize the authority the president of the United States has under the Constitution to manage who comes into this country.”
Asked on the ABC program “This Week” about whether Mr. Trump had failed to respect the judicial branch’s check on his authority, Mr. Pence said the president was merely “speaking his mind,” as Americans have come to expect from him.
But other Republicans said Mr. Trump’s attack was inappropriate. The Senate’s top Republican, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that it was “best not to single out judges.”
“We all get disappointed from time to time,” Mr. McConnell said. “I think it is best to avoid criticizing them individually.”
