On Election Night 2016, Karen Pence Was Disgusted By Her Husband
Second lady Karen Pence reportedly was disgusted by her husband on election night in 2016, refusing to kiss then-Vice President elect Mike Pence when he and Donald Trump realized their victory.
According to journalist Tom LoBianco’s new Pence biography, “Piety and Power,” Karen “was livid” at Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood comments that leaked during the election. The footage revealed Trump bragging that he could grab women by their genitals because he was rich and famous.
Karen wanted her husband to drop off the ticket after the leak, but he determined it was too late to abandon his post.
On election night, she reportedly refused to kiss her husband, saying, “You got what you wanted, Mike. Leave me alone.”
