Vice President Mike Pence stated that Joe Biden “caved to liberal activists” when the former vice president backtracked after calling Pence a “decent guy,” according to a recent Fox News interview.
Pence was asked about Biden’s remarks, and his backtrack, once he was shamed by far-left Democrats for defending his character. He also weighed in on Biden potentially entering the 2020 presidential race.
“Well look, they’ve got an awfully big field,” Pence told “Fox & Friends.” “On the other side, the reality that you see — on the Democrat side, is it’s largely being driven by the most extreme liberal elements in their party, and the way Joe Biden caved in to liberal activists after making a kind comment for me is evidence of the pressure that all of their candidates are going to face.”
Biden defended Pence for praising President Trump during the Munich Security Conference. Pence was met with stone-cold silence.
“The fact of the matter is, it was followed on by a guy who’s a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, ‘I’m here on behalf of President Trump’, and there was dead silence. Dead silence,” Biden said during a speech in Nebraska.
But Biden was hit with intense criticism by liberals like former New York City gubernatorial candidate and “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon, who blasted Biden for calling “America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader ‘a decent guy’.”
“Please consider how this falls on the ears of our community,” Nixon tweeted.
Biden took a step back and said: “You’re right, Cynthia. I was making a point in a foreign policy context, that under normal circumstances a Vice President wouldn’t be given a silent reaction on a world stage. But there is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the Vice President.”
