Mother’s Husband is jetting off to Florida for a nice vacation during the pandemic (update)

Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in Arizona

Update by CB: Pence has canceled his vacation.


Let’s talk about Mother’s Husband. I actually thought Mike Pence had been in the wind since Election Day, but he actually had been around. On Monday (two days after Joe Biden became the president-elect), Mother’s Husband tweeted: “it ain’t over til it’s over.. and this AIN’T over! President @realDonaldTrump has never stopped fighting for us and we’re gonna Keep Fighting until every LEGAL vote is counted!” Last Thursday, he also tweeted: “I Stand With President @realDonaldTrump. We must count every LEGAL vote.” Trump also sent him to Capitol Hill yesterday where he was supposed to brief congressmen on the pandemic, but really he was there to give Republicans information about the election. Which is over. Pence said words about voter fraud and lawsuits, but he had nothing to back up any of his claims. So, clearly, Mother’s Husband is ready for a big vacay:

Pence is still (nominally) the head of the coronavirus task force, which is doing such a bang-up job that nearly 60,000 Americans were hospitalized with the coronavirus ON MONDAY. Health experts think that America could soon hit a grotesque marker of 200,000 infections A DAY. Oh, and did I mention the fact that Pence tried to give Donald Trump credit for Pfizer’s new corona-vaccine? Within an hour of the Trump administration trying to take credit for the vaccine, Pfizer’s CEO said Mike Pence is a liar and his company had zero interest in working with this administration.

Besides all of that, it just looks stupid for Pence to be jetting off on vacation while Republicans continue to insist that Trump “won.” I mean…

    Dying that you used the picture with the fly! 😂 Please use it on all stories about Mother’s husband going forward (although hopefully soon we won’t have to read or think about him anymore, ever again).

  3. Sylvia says:

    Every time I see that picture of Pence with the fly on his head, my instinct is to blow on my phone screen to brush away the dirt… lmao

    Thanks for the morning chuckle.

    He just wants to have his comeback in the future and be able to say “I was not involved in that shitshow” I know, I know… but honestly, I rather see him on vacation than trying to deny the result of the election…

    • Lemons says:

      A staffer is probably in control of his Twitter account and he’s trying to distance himself as much as possible! Pipe dreams.

  5. Esmom says:

    I thought I read last night that he decided to come back to DC. Maybe he realized the optics of going on vacation when supposedly his and Babyfists fates hinge on massive election fraud aren’t good. I won’t even mention Coronavirus because his lack of concern about it has been clear for some time.

  6. AnnaKist says:

    I still chortle every time I read, “Mother’s Husband”. In the next four years, I hope we continue to get opportunities to mock these gronks. (Sorry Mr Biden, but I still need to get these twunts’ lingering reek out of my system.)

  7. Maevo says:

    Whoa I thought it was just a cover for him having Covid but he’s actually around?! Wtf.

  8. Miranda says:

    Why is Mother’s Husband so damn red in the header pic? He looks like a a sentient piece of tandoori chicken.

    I’m actually kinda enjoying all these Republicans being in denial. The more kicking and screaming fascists they have to roughly remove from the White House on Inauguration Day, the more schadenfreude I get.

    Maybe Sanibel Island (which is GORGEOUS) told him they were closed due to landscaping???

  10. Cassandra says:

    The tropical storm probably had something to do with him canceling it 😀

    Enjoy your karma

    Question – maybe I missed it, but why was Pence dubbed “Mother’s Husband”? LOL

    Don’t get me wrong, I find it hysterical and love the Freudian implications, but did he say or do something once to warrant this? Just curious…

    Oh, and BTW, cannot wait for all these GOP assholes to get dragged out the WH door!! Good riddance!!

    • TheRickestRick says:

      He calls his wife “mother”. Seriously.

    • AMA1977 says:

      He calls his wife “Mother” despite the fact that their children are grown, and she wears the pants (metaphorically) because he’s not allowed to be alone with another woman, like not even in a meeting-to-do-your-job sense. He just rolls over and lets Mother make the rules.

      She definitely had his dangly bits made into earrings early in the marriage.

        I think it is also part of that infantalising mixture of bullshit and patriarchy that the Evangelicals love. A hideous brew of virgin/whore mentality! It should NEVER be forgotten what this man was responsible for during the AIDS/HIV pandemic. I suspect that when/if he reaches the Pearly Gates he will be directed downstairs to his own special corner, along with all the others of his loathsome ilk!

      • AmyB says:

        LMAO – awww thank you ladies!! I knew there was something hysterical there!!!

        hahaha!!!
