Tense Trump-Pence interview goes haywire
Donald Trump would hardly let Mike Pence talk. When Pence did talk he had a difficult time explaining how he can reconcile both his style and his views from the Yakking Yam..
When journalist Lesley Stahl asked Pence what he thought “about your running mate’s campaign and the tone and negativity of it,” the notoriously conservative Indiana governor replied by avoiding the question.
“I think this is a good man who’s been talking about the issues the American people care about,” he said.
“But name calling, ‘Lyin’ Ted,'” Stahl interjected, referring to the condescending nickname Trump awarded to former rival Ted Cruz.
“In the essay that I wrote a long time ago, I said campaigning ought to be about something more important than just one candidate’s election,” Pence continued…
“Leslie, Leslie,” Trump cooed at the veteran broadcaster.

“We’re different people. I understand that,” he said about he and Pence.
“I’ll give you an example. Hillary Clinton is a liar,” Trump added plainly
“That’s negative,” Stahl responded.
“You better believe it,” Trump hit back sharply. “”Hillary Clinton is a crook. I call her ‘Crooked Hillary.'”
