The wife of Vice President Mike Pence is not hiding her opinion about President Trump anymore.
A former campaign aide told the Atlantic that Karen Pence think Trump is “reprehensible and just totally vile.” The Vice President’s wife made the comment after hearing the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump boasted sexually harassing women. Mrs. Pence was disgusted by the tape.
The Access Hollywood tape came out weeks before the presidential election last year. At the time, the issue created a short faction between Pence and Trump.
The Pence’s distanced are devoted Christians so when the Access Hollywood tape was disclosed to the public, they distanced themselves from Trump, according to a former campaign aide as reported by The New Yorker.
The report indicated that at the time, the Pence’s sent a letter to Trump and told him that they are Christians and were deeply offended by his actions. They also informed Trump that they needed time to decide whether to remain in the campaign.
Alyssa Farah, the press secretary of Vice President Pence denied The Atlantic’s article regarding the matter. In a tweet, Farah wrote, “Regarding The Atlantic’s tired, false claim about the VP during the campaign—we denied this in the article and deny it again today. Didn’t happen.”
A recent report indicated that Trump was questioning the authenticity of the Access Hollywood tape. Therefore, the media is again focusing on the issue.
Former “Access Hollywood” and “Today” show host Billy Bush said the tape is real. The video shows Trump riding on the Access Hollywood bus with Bush.
In the video, Trump talked about him trying to have sex with a married woman. He also boasted about women allowing him kiss and grab them because he is famous. He said, “When you’re star, they let you do it.”
In an op-ed published on Sunday, Bush said there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time when Trump boasted sexually harassing women.
