Pence Family Magnanimous After John Oliver’s Attack

Vice President Pence’s 24-year-old daughter Charlotte Pence, who wrote a children’s book about the family’s pet bunny, decided to be above the vicious attacks on her father and praise John Oliver’s parody of her book by noting the proceeds go to charity.

In the parody, written by a staffer for his weekly HBO show, the bunny is gay. Vice President Pence has become a hated and vilified symbol among liberals like Oliver for his support of traditional values.

“His book is contributing to charities that I believe we can all get behind,” she said. “So we have two books that are giving to charities.” Karen Pence, the vice president’s wife, illustrated the book.

Oliver’s book donates to AIDS United and the Trevor Project, which supports suicidal LGBTQ young people. He announced the book in a profanity-laced tirade against Pence Sunday night.

President Obama seems to have forgotten that he is the leader of the armed forces, and as such, needs to lead them.

I know, it’s a complicated job and stuff.

HBO comedy show host John Oliver is a liberal from Britain. But his wife served in Iraq as a U.S. Army combat medic, so maybe that helped him pick up on President Sourface Thursday night leading our troops into battle with all the enthusiasm of a five year old who just found out it’s bedtime.

“Ah, yes, reluctance — it’s always been the best tone for leaders to use when inspiring troops before battle,” Oliver notes.

Here is a link to the video. I have to link to it rather than display it because it loads automatically and will drive you crazy after you’ve seen it.

Reminds me of a swim team coach I once had. He had the same hyper-rational personality as Obama, without that slight air of superiority.

Denny was a great coach, but not when it came to the rah rah sis boom bah part.

Once, on the bus to swim meet, Denny got us psyched up, his way. Yes, it was going to be close. Yes, we would need to swim our best. And if we all indeed did our best, he had calculated, we would lose by two points.

Now that was inspirational.

As I remember it, we of course lost by more than that. Here’s hoping our brave servicemen and women are better self-motivators.
