Newsweek Mocks Loss of Mike Pence’s Cat Pickles. [VIDEO]

Vice President Mike Pence and his family love having pets. In fact, they love animals so much that when they moved into their home in the Naval Observatory, they brought two cats, a rabbit, and a snake. Moreover, the rabbit, “Marlon Bundo,” even has his own Instagram account.

But now one of their furry family members has died. Pickle, a rescue kitty, died at 16 years, which is a ripe old age for a cat. Second Lady Karen Pence noted Pickle’s passing on Twitter:

And daughter Charlotte added her tribute on Instagram:

But, leave it to the media to question the passing of Pickle. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution posted a video on Pickle while noting that yet another Pence pet has died.

And Newsweek went even farther with their headline, “Mike Pence’s Pets Won’t Stop Dying.”

Oh, Em, Gee, it’s a conspiracy!  The Pence family is somehow offing their pets!

Newsweek reporters are probably rubbing their hands together, eager for little Marlon Bundo to meet the same fate as the pet bunny in Fatal Attraction.

Or maybe the animals’ deaths are due to the Big Boss. You know, President Trump. Because according to a report in The Atlantic, Trump didn’t care much for his VP bringing all those critters to DC. In fact, he was supposedly “embarrassed,” and considered it “low class.” Trump even called the Pences “yokels.”

Allegedly. We only have the word of an anonymous “long-time adviser.”

So what’s causing the rapid departure of the Pence pets over the Rainbow Bridge? Are the Pences abusing their pets? Is President Trump sending out a hit squad to whack them?

Or is it because they were just old? Look, a cat living to 16, and a dog to 13 is pretty typical. No doubt the Pence family loves their pets and cares well for them. And right now they’re sad at the loss of Pickle. Anyone who’s lost beloved pets (raising hand here), knows that kind of grief hits you harder than you would ever think. “It’s just an animal!” right? No, no it’s not.

So shame on Newsweek for mocking Mike Pence and his family. What’s wrong with these people?

    Typical leftist scum!

  • Steve S. says:

    What’s wrong with these people? Jealousy – ’cause they know that no one will mourn them when they die.

  • GWB says:

    OK, a bit of observation before you post can prevent potential smart-ass problems….
    Because my first thought when you posted that “Bundo” tweet right after saying “they brought two cats, a rabbit, and a snake” was…
    Which one’s the snake?

    And I know how the left will run with that one……….

  • GWB says:

    Honestly, if this is the best they can do in attacking Pence, then I have to say “Go, Mike, go!”

  • MikeE says:

    Remember, Newsweek was sold for a dollar. And that was overpriced.

    • P. Aaron says:

      And the WaPo for front pocket change. That’s how valuable the media are these days.

      FWIW, I’m still not over my cat who passed in ‘15. A terrific buddy who always sat w/me and was awaiting me at bedtime every night. Saw me through chemo and was the best lap kitty. First few nights were especially hard.

    What’s wrong with these people? They’re liberals, that’s what. I sometimes point out to people that this long-ago TV show illustrates what liberalism used to mean. We come are a long way from Eleanor in 1953 to today’s shrill Hillary.

    “What’s wrong with these people?”

    Simply put, we are all Homo Sapiens Sapiens. But not all of us are human.

    i always wondered how these progressive twits think they received their moral authority…they are the most vile, despicable and vindictive people history has ever known. and now they have a myriad of outlets to vent their absolute hatred of anything good. i really believe they are angry at people who do not hold their worldview, and that those people could be happy and fulfilled without going along with their bigoted, hateful behavior

    RIP Pickles

    When you have a beloved pet die
    It is natural to feel bad & cry
    When mocked at this time
    By partisan slime
    Tell ‘em shove it & spit in their eye

    Illegitimi n0n carborundum

    You are absolutely right that the Newsweek article you mentioned was terrible. Here is an article from The Huffington Post on the same topic – clearly displaying sympathy for the Pences’ loss:

    I agree that Newsweek should have never run that story/opinion piece. I am a Democrat and have never liked Newsweek for many reasons (mainly bad writing) but Newsweek is generally considered to be right next to USA Today on the political spectrum (in the center). Huffington Post is liberal, and they sympathized with the Pences.

    This is your blog, so you are free to write what you please, but aren’t you curious about whether Newsweek’s terrible article represented liberals’ opinions? It certainly doesn’t represent mine. In fact, I admire Mike Pence for his obvious love of his pets. Any cat owner knows that only a cat that loves his/her owner lets the owner carry them around in public like Pence does.
