In a revealing interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, vice president Mike Pence continued his baffling avoidance of the phrase “Black Lives Matter”. Even though it is becoming a point of contention among the 67% who support the BLM movement, Pence seems steadfast in his disdain for uttering those particular words.
Cuomo: “In the wake of the George Floyd killing, popular support for the message of the Black Lives Matter movement has increased a great deal. Mr. Vice President, do you believe that black lives matter?”
Pence: “I believe that all lives matter. Each life is a precious gift from God and has its own unique value and worth.”
Cuomo: “But sir, you do understand that the phrase “All Lives Matter” is being criticized for diluting the focus of the BLM slogan and corrupting its message don’t you?”
Pence: ” I think ‘all lives matter’ includes everyone and leaves no one out. Who could have a problem with that?”
Cuomo: “I see your point but none the less many people are offended by that statement. So for the people who feel offended, could please just say the words ‘black lives matter’?”
Pence: “all lives matter.”
Cuomo: “Can you please say the words ‘black lives matter?'”
Cuomo: ” I think you need to say it.”
Pence: “I won’t.”
Two large men enter the room. One grasps the vice president by the shoulders.
Cuomo: “Say it!”
The second man grabs the back of the vice president’s underwear and pulls it over his head.
Cuomo: “SAY IT!”
Pence: “I WILL NOT!!”
Cuomo: “Say it or we’re going to bring an unmarried woman into the room and Mommie is nowhere around.”
Pence: “NOOOOOO!! NOOOOO!!!”
A scantily clad woman enters the room and begins to give the VP a lap dance.
Cuomo: “You know if you pop a boner you’re going straight to Hell. SAY IT!”
Pence: “Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me… Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me… Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me…”
Cuomo: “You’re gonna want to avoid this next part. Just say it and it’s all over.”
Pence: “NEVER! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!”
Cuomo leaves the set for about a minute and returns with a gasoline can and a razor. “Stuck In The Middle With You” begins to play over the studio monitors as Cuomo starts to dance menacingly. Pence suddenly snaps to a seated attention and takes on a distinct air of defiance. He begins to sing.
Pence: “Oh fatherland, fatherland, show us the sign
Your children have waited to see
The morning will come when the world is mine
Tomorrow belongs to me…..”
