Vice President Mike Pence has largely steered clear of controversy.
That all changed in one stunning interview.
And what Vice President Mike Pence said about the American flag will leave your jaw on the ground.
When Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, she permitted U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow flag just below the American flag during so-called “pride” month.
NBC News broke the story that Donald Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had put a stop to this insulting practice.
But the fake news media – which acts as the chief cheerleader for the radical homosexual agenda –erupted in furor.
NBC News exclusively reported:
The Trump administration is rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during June, LGBTQ Pride Month, three American diplomats told NBC News.
The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump’s State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said.
NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker interviewed Mike Pence and raised this subject.
The Vice President noted that the United States flag stands alone as the symbol of America.
“We both feel that way very passionately, but when it comes to the American flagpole, and American embassies, and capitals around the world, one American flag flies,” Vice President Pence told NBC News.
Secretary of State Pompeo permitted embassies to display the controversial homosexual rights flag in other places inside and around the embassies.
But fake news organizations like NBC zeroed-in on Mike Pompeo’s opposition to homosexual marriage because of his strongly-held Christian beliefs as evidence of bigotry.
Pence also shot this down noting that the Trump administration does not discriminate against any American.
“As the president said on the night we were elected, we’re proud to be able to serve every American,” Vice President Pence told Welker.
That won’t be enough for the fake news media.
They hope to make this into a national scandal to embarrass President Trump as he gears up for re-election.
The push to fly the rainbow pride flag alongside the stars and stripes comes at the same time Democrats in Congress renewed their push to ram the gay bill of special rights into law.
This controversial legislation would force churches and other religious organizations to hire homosexuals and make it harder to fire them.
President Trump opposes this law.
So the homosexual lobby’s allies in the fake news media are out to demonize the administration on every front possible.
That’s why the liberal media concocted a completely fake controversy about flying the homosexual alongside the American flag.
But Mike Pence shut down this manufactured outrage by pointing out one simple fact: America only has one flag that represents the nation.
