The Internet Roasts Mike Pence For His Fawning Thank You Speech To Trump (VIDEO)

Mike Pence decided to give Donald Trump an early and obsequious Christmas present at a cabinet meeting Wednesday.

As Trump sat and listened, Pence heaped praise on the Dear Leader, telling him:

“Congratulations and thank you. Thank you for seeing through the course of this year an agenda that truly is restoring this country.”

But the Vice President was far from done kissing the Donald’s fat ass:

“I want to thank you, Mr. President. I want to thank you for speaking on behalf of and fighting every day for the forgotten men and women of America.”

And then there was this:

“Because of your leadership, Mr. President… you’re delivering on that middle-class miracle.”

Being an evangelical, Pence is big on miracles, but he failed to explain how the “middle-class miracle” would work with tax cuts for the wealthiest one percent of Americans and the largest corporations on the planet. It must involve drinking lots of wine and pretending that you can walk on water. Provided, of course, you can afford the price of the wine and water after the company that bottles it decides to pass along their tax savings in the form of a higher price.

Thankfully, despite Pence’s blatant knob polishing, Twitter responded with lots of righteous indignation and outright hilarity:

Working for Donald Trump has got to be the worst job in the world. He not only doesn’t know a damn thing about how to run the place, but he also demands you build up his ego at least once every hour. Good thing Mike Pence is such a fast learner.

Watch, but have a barf bag handy:
