CNN really believes that President Trump is going to be impeached. But if he does, than they will have to deal with Mike Pence as President, who they would hate even more based on his religious convictions. It’s why Robert Reich argued that we can’t just impeach Trump we must “annul” his Presidency.
CNN had Michael D’Antonio, on the show who wrote a book called “The Shadow President” where he called Pence the first “Christian supremacist” who could become President.
“Now he’s not the first committed Christians to be anywhere near the White House. I mean there have been a lot of deeply religious figures there,” said CNN’s John Berman.
“I think he’s a very divisive figure. He would like to impose a religiously inspired politics on our country that means rolling back marriage equality, it means a ban on abortion, a whole host of policies that are religiously driven. He’s very upfront about that,” responded D’Antonio.
“And the goal here is not to really pick on Mike Pence’s belief system. But he made his particular kind of Christianity the centerpiece of his political personality and I think we have to talk about it. You know, he is very much anti-gay. He’s anti-marriage equality. He wants to roll back Roe v. Wade. All of the things are religiously inspired. He has a right to those positions but we should all be aware of them,” said D’Antonio.
