Mike Pence Posts Nastily Hypocritical Post-London Attack Tweet, Gets Taken Down Instantly

Vice President Mike Pence posted a tweet on Saturday that was an attempt at reaching out to those affected by the London Bridge attack but it, unsurprisingly, fell short.

The attack claimed the lives of 7 people and has left dozens of people in the hospital.

Pence’s message of condolences draws on one that was posted by President Trump late Saturday — after the President stumped for his travel ban on Twitter.

Pence’s message reads: “Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the victims, courageous first responders & all the people of London. As President Trump said: WE ARE WITH YOU.”

The biggest problem with Pence’s message is his claim that President Trump has made any sort of significant move to substantively reach out to the U.K. following the London Bridge incident.

Again, showing just where his priorities lie, President Trump tweeted a message putting in a plug for his Muslim targeting travel ban before he tweeted a message of condolences.

President Trump’s message of condolences says: “Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!”

About ten minutes before that message, Trump posted a message reading, “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”

Twitter ripped into Mike Pence for pretending like President Trump is some sort of model of how to reply to terror attacks.
