Mike Pence Not Dining Alone With Women Without Karen Pence Raises Eyebrows On Social Media
By Shawn Rice
Vice-President Mike Pence’s wife received a Washington Post profile that gave insight into the Second Lady Karen Pence’s personality and her relationship with the vice president. The second lady reportedly acts as her husband’s “gut check,” shield” and “prayer warrior,” and she is often by his side sometimes with a tray of cookies. Of course, social media had a bit of fun with this news and raised some questions about their relationship.
A profile of the vice president’s wife in the Washington Post reveals the couple adheres to strict rules to preserve the sanctity of their relationship. According to the article, Mike told the Hill in 2002 that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife. He also will not attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side.
Before they were married, she had a cross engraved with the word “yes,” ready for the moment that he proposed. They kept his and hers offices in the Indiana State House when he was governor. He allegedly calls her “mother,” a practice of roughly the same midcentury vintage as some of his past stances on L.G.B.T.Q. issues. Even President Donald Trump understood her importance and consulted her in critical campaign moments.

I think it’s sweet that Mike Pence insists his wife be there when he rips off his human mask & plunges his fanged maw into live puppy-flesh
