Shortly after the ruling was announced, Vice President Mike Pence took to Twitter and tried to suggest that what had taken place in the high court was a convincing reason to reelect his boss, President Donald Trump to a second term in office:
After today’s disappointing decision by SCOTUS, one thing is clear: We need more Conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. #FourMoreYears

That was all it took to set off a firestorm of mockery and and reminders that the country has much more pressing issues to face:
Imagine being so staunchly anti-choice that you’re willing to get in bed with mobsters like Trump & Putin, and then botch the pandemic response so that many more Americans die.
How is any of that “pro-life,” exactly? https://t.co/NSJ3SGFurq

You only care about the unborn – not people’s lives
– taking away healthcare
– taking away SNAP benefits
– putting bounties on soldiers
– zero leadership on COVID-19
– 130,000 dead Americans
*** not one of these lives have mattered to you ***. YOU ARE NOT PRO LIFE!!!

You already have the majority.
If you still can’t get your way with everything rigged in your favor, that could be a sign of how wrong you are on every issue.
Remember the old Cherokee proverb: When you think everyone else is crazy, it’s probably just you.

Odd how the GOP hates govt regulations, except for regulating our bodies and the doctors and clinics that enable women to exercise their reproductive rights.
Odd how the GOP goes on and on about “Liberty!” and “Freedom!” except for **women’s** liberty and freedom to choose.

Awwww- really kills you that women won again in having bodily autonomy. We don’t need more Conservative justices. We need your Bible out of our laws. Can’t wait to vote you out.

As usual, Mike Pence makes it crystal clear that the only god he truly worships is the orange-tinted one he so dutifully stands next to and moons over like a lust-consumed teenage girl.
