The media is chastising Mike Pence just because he refuses to bad mouth someone just because they say he should. In my opinion he just refuses to stoop to the level of the left. Just because David Duke is one of the worst people imaginable doesn't mean someone has to call him names.

But, no one forced them to say what they did like they tried to force Pence to say what they wanted.
Isn't trump the one who comes up with names starting with Cruz and the other candidates. It's funny how people try to make a big deal about Hillary's emails but are quick to dispel trump's lies and scandals and racist remarks.
I totally agree
Those are just nick names, and David Duke is not running against Trump. If he were, he would get a nick name.
While the left likes to call anyone not them, Racists, Homophobes, and Deplorables.
Would you like to be forced to say something you don't want to? Even though you might feel that way, maybe you don't want to stoop to their level of name calling. I, personally, am proud of him that he didn't stoop.
Greg, it's part of being a politician. Comes with the job. I have to do a lot of things I don't want to do. If you want to win, you gotta do it. Calling Duke a name is not rude. It's expected. Pride does not win elections.
My point is, that Pence did NOT want to say it and they hounded him to say what he did NOT want to say.
That's thestrategy,media always tries to get people on the right to say something they don't want to say so if they won't say it,as in this case they'll say Pence won't say Duke's deplorable so people likeLMCwill say Pence approves of Duke.
That's it exactly taze.
I am not OK with free speech being muffled anywhere at anytime in America. I am also not OK with force or coercion nor any sort of demand or threat to make anyone say something they choose not to.
The whole nation knows Duke is KKK. Old news.
They also know what he is and what he stands for. Pence didn't have to say it just to appease the left. Thank you Paula.
The problem with the news is that they don't accurately report the news. And they editorialize it. And they seem to do it as if they were part of the extreme political left instead of being the non political reporters of events.
