WATCH: Mike Pence Fails Miserably at Defending Donald Trump in VP Debate

AP/Andrew Gombert

Mike Pence and Tim Kaine engaged in the Vice Presidential debate on Tuesday night and if we learned anything at all, it was that it can be very hard to defend the things Donald Trump says.

The theme of the night seemed to be Pence trying to defend Trump and some of the more outrageous claims made by the reality-TV-star-turned-presidential candidate. In many cases, he simply couldn’t. But rather than deflect the question or change the subject or even stand behind his boss, he did probably the worst thing imaginable by outright contradicting direct quotes from Trump.

Here’s a solid collection of all the times Pence directly contradicted things Trump has previously said on the campaign trail. Those Republicans need to get their stories straight, it would seem.
