After the Access Hollywood tape surfaced that caught Donald Trump on audio bragging that he likes to sexually grope women without consent, his running mate Mike Pence discussed ousting Trump and running for president, The Atlantic reports: "[H]e wasn't just thinking about dropping out -- he was contemplating a coup. Within hours of The Post's bombshell, Pence made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump's place as the party's nominee. Such a move just four weeks before Election Day would have been unprecedented -- but the situation seemed dire enough to call for radical action."
McKay Coppins reports for The Atlantic, "The furtive plotting, several sources told me, was not just an act of political opportunism for Pence. He was genuinely shocked by the Access Hollywood tape. In the short time they'd known each other, Trump had made an effort to convince Pence that -- beneath all the made-for-TV bluster and bravado -- he was a good-hearted man with faith in God. ... The couple was appalled by the video, however. Karen [Pence] in particular was 'disgusted,' says a former campaign aide. "She finds him reprehensible -- just totally vile."
If this is news to The Gropenfuhrer does that mean that he will "You're Fired" Pence?

I think that Pence should start preparing his own meals when visiting the White House. Trump already does.
"Pence made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump's place as the party's nominee"
is this the "Deep State" we keep hearing about?

USA = Zimbabwe
... [H]e wasn't just thinking about dropping out -- he was contemplating a coup. Within hours of The Post's bombshell, Pence made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump's place as the party's nominee. ...
And VP Pence knowing that, still said all the things he has said since then?
What redeeming qualities has Pres Trump shown since then that have caused VP Pence to go quiet on Pres Trump's suitability for the highest office in the Land?
He can't - at least not until 2020. Pence was elected VP.
As a practical matter, a vice president would face enormous pressure to resign if the president demanded it. I don't think Pence could stay in that job without Trump's support.

Just like the Christians in Mexico doing it right? Or do you think all those hombres aren't Christian just because they are in Cartels?

But it would be his decision. I'm not saying it would be a pleasant stay but he is an elected official.
The RNC should explain why they didn't support Pence against Der GrabbenFuehrer.
Oh, wait, Roy Moore. Never mind.
Stone's a molester, he won't be making any more movies.

It's ok if he produces them in Alabama.
I like it, they could put something like "Come to Alabama and molest" or "Alabama is for pervs" on their promotional literature. I'd better buy before land values skyrocket with Hollywood money.
Oliver Stone eats controversy for breakfast, digests it for lunch, and passes chunks of it in his stool before he retires for the evening.
In an evangelical religion, if you're winning souls for [insert deity here], any device is OK to use. Especially when the end result for not joining the religion is eternal damnation in a lake of burning sulfur.
Why do religions say "Thou Shalt Not Lie"
Probably because it doesn't. The actual context is "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour". Historically in Jewish tradition, a distinction was made between lying in general and bearing false witness (perjury) specifically.
