The New Yorker reports that Donald Trump in the past has “joked” that Vice President “wants to hang” all gay people.
Trump jabbed at Pence after a legal scholar told the pair that if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many states would probably legalize abortion.
You see?” Trump reportedly said to Pence. “You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.”
And when the meeting began to focus on gay rights, Trump reportedly pointed to Pence, joking, “Don’t ask that guy — he wants to hang them all!”
One Trump campaign staffer also told The New Yorker that Trump used to ask people leaving meetings with Pence, “Did Mike make you pray?”
So Donald Trump “jokes” about the number 2 person in the US wanting to hang some of its own citizens because of his religious views. There is no part of that that is funny. Especially since its probably true.
