Pence: Media Will “Attack This President For Any Reason”


In a long interview with Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace on Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence blasted BuzzFeed and the rest of the mainstream media for harboring a dark “obsessions” with taking down President Trump using even the flimsiest, fakest allegations they can pull out of their you-know-whats. Pence, who is known for being a measured and deliberate counterpoint to Trump’s wild and undisciplined straight talking style, could not hide his frustration with the Democrat operatives in the news media when the subject turned to BuzzFeed’s fake news story.  

Pence said that it is the “obsession of many in the national media to attack this president for any reason, for any allegation.” But he said that while the BuzzFeed report – later contradicted by a statement from Special Counsel Robert Mueller – was a prime example of media bias, it was hardly the only such example. He said that the problem extended to the whole of the mainstream press, which has made it is special mission to turn Trump into an ex-president as soon as humanly possible.

“It was remarkable what we saw happening for 24 hours in the media, on the basis of the report that appeared in BuzzFeed,” Pence said. “It’s one of the reasons why people are so frustrated with many in the national media.”

Pence also addressed the ongoing government shutdown, accusing Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats of playing political games with the negotiations process rather than seriously considering the proposals on the table. He assured Wallace that Republicans were still willing to compromise, but expressed disappointment in Pelosi’s strategy, which seems to be based less on finding common ground and more on fundraising off the shutdown.

“It was disappointing to see Speaker Pelosi reject the offer before the president gave his speech on Saturday,” Pence said. “The president is offering a solution. And what we have from Democrats’ leadership is just soundbites.”

On Saturday, President Trump offered Democrats protected status for Dreamers and extended protections for immigrants in the Temporary Protected Status program. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to put that version of the bill – which would include $5.7 billion for Trump’s wall – to a floor vote this week. It remains to be seen if Republicans can get the 60 votes they need to overcome a Democratic filibuster, however.

“I was sitting right next to the president when Speaker Pelosi said, if we re-open the government and took 30 days to negotiate, that she would not give the president funding for border security or a wall,” Pence said. “The most important thing is for the American people to let their voice be heard.”

For now, Democrats are more interested in pushing fake news and profiting off the shutdown. We’ll see if that turns out for them the way they are hoping it will.

  1. Has common sense died in DC? With over 10 million ILLEGAL Immigrants in country 63% on some kind of welfare taking money away from our citizens. Over 15 million dollars spent in medical care for women to have kids on our tax payer money. It’s time to hold the members of congress responsible. It’s time to send all members of congress a letter telling them how the american voters feel about their childish and petty behavior. Our congress espically the democrats have made us a joke around the world. Let’s hold them accountable.

  2. Even Andrew, who thinks himself a journalist has to throw negative shade at the president. This JOEY ,AS IN STALIN, keeps his socialist dumbocraptic view.DRINK MORE BRAWNDO Joey, made from the excrement of dumbocraptic house members

  3. If Trump would break wind the press would find something stupid to say about it. These lying yellow dogs need to be removed from covering politics all together, in fact, the hack networks need to be shut out of anything to do with Pres, V Pres, their cabinets and WH functions for the lies they make up and spew.

    • I totally agree…. Mr. Trump has NEVER told a single ‘Un-Truth’ in his life. He built a giant business from a tiny little loan… and even though he’s had a handful of bankruptcies… He always came out ahead. When he made his organization a public company, he made millions… although all the investors were busted.
      So, you suggest we have a Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabian style media… in America. Report what WE say… or be put in prison… or be murdered! Gee, that sounds just GREAT! ‘Think just like me… or disappear’. Doesn’t sound very ‘American’, to me.

      So, I’m just guessing you’re really, really gullible and/or stupid…. or you’re a Russian/Trump troll.

    • Blind allegiance to a pathological, insecure, narcissist philander…. GOOD IDEA. But, don’t worry, the Wall will get built and MEXICO WILL PAY FOR IT! That’s what he promised! Remember?

  4. We seem to forget the ‘Republican Cabal’ at the time… when Obama was elected, gathering together in a dungeon somewhere ‘VOWING’ to make Barack a ‘One-Term President’… doing everything in their power to bring him down. This was NOT the media…. but a part of our government who swore an oath to serve on behalf of the American people.
    So Pence finally has some guts to say something… except, the wimpish, little, ass-kissing hypocrite has to make yet another ‘Fake News’ type claim. The MSM clearly has their problems… but like every other ‘corporation’, they’re just trying to make money at their business. Trump, with his 8000 lies (so far)… the chaos, the firings, the dissent, the revolving door, the threats, the ridiculous comments, berating friends and praising enemies, getting laughed at while making braggadocios, but false statements on a world stage… is THE CIRCUS the media feeds on.
    Blaming THEM… for bringing the circus to town is a false narrative… Then again, what would you expect from this ‘Clown Show’?
