Mike Pence should never tweet about International Women’s Day but he did anyway

Vice President Mike Pence, who calls his wife “Mother,” who makes arbitrary rules for himself that forbid him from dining alone with women who aren’t his wife, who laid waste to women’s health when he was governor of Indiana, and who is a champion of the anti-choice movement, took a moment to give a shout out to International Women’s Day on Twitter this morning.

“Today, on #InternationalWomensDay — and ALL days — we recognize the countless contributions women have made to our economy, our communities, & our Nation,” Pence tweeted. “The Trump Admin will continue to strive to empower women across America to keep making a profound impact.”

That’s an ironic thing to say, considering that one of the main preoccupations of the Trump administration is navigating the accusations and lawsuits of all the women the President has allegedly desecrated.

The response was as expected:







As The Cut‘s Gabriella Paiella points out, Pence honoring IWD is “only slightly less embarrassing than McDonald’s flipping their golden arches to a W.”
