Mike Pence sure seems to love Donald Trump.
I mean, he really, really loves his boss.
At the signing of the veto canceling the resolution blocking his national emergency on Friday afternoon, Mike Pence was allowed to say a few words, and of course he used the opportunity to praise Dear Leader.
Pence said, “I don’t know that I have never been more proud to stand next year desk than I am today… I know I speak on behalf of all gathered here and people across this country when I say, thank you for keeping your word, Mr. President.”
Pence even gave him a round of applause!

Of course this isn’t the first time Pence has been over-the-top in his praise of Trump.
Back in late 2017, Pence caught flak for his incredible praising words of Trump during a cabinet meeting following the passage of the GOP tax bill (tax scam.)
“I’m deeply humbled as your vice president to be able to be here. Because of your leadership and because of the strong support of the leadership of the Congress, you’re delivering on that middle class miracle,” Pence said of the tax overhaul bill that has been criticized by some as benefiting corporations and the very wealthy while hurting the poor and middle class.

And we can never forget that Pence sent out a tweet claiming Trump coined the phrase “the forgotten men and women of America.”
When @POTUS coined that phrase “the forgotten men and women of America,” he tapped into a frustration the American people were feeling that they knew our nation could be better. As we see America grow stronger and grow more prosperous, we're going to grow more united. #MAGA pic.twitter.com/dhViSa72D8
