Here is the speech itself and a darned good speech it is too:
Below is Pence turning, once Ryan walks off and as you can see, Pence deliberately turns in order to make the gesture he does:
Whenever he gestured to Trump, he used open hand, Trump’s way is usually to point to the other person. This was neither of those. This, to an establishment figure who refused to endorse Trump, was a symbol well known across the establishment:
And it’s a symbol known to many Christians who are opposed to what it symbolizes:
All sorts of chestnuts have been trotted out to account for it. For example, Bush said it meant longhorn cattle, the longhorn state.
Berlusconi, the Pope and other world figures are presumably all Texans then, including Sarah Palin and Sarkozy.
I call BS on that – it is exactly what many are trying hard not to agree is so. I put that it is exactly as it says on the label.
Which then brings into question this ‘Christianity’ of Pence’s. We’ve already seen Cruz’s ‘Christianity’ in the past few weeks. Which then brings up the question – does the Donald know fullwell about all this or is he naive?
