Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence had one heck of an answer when a WBNS anchor asked him to respond to an 11-year-old’s question about her body image.
Anchor Scott Light told Pence that the Girl Scout stopped and told staff, “When I hear those words and look in the mirror, they make me feel bad about myself.”
“What would you say to that 11-year-old girl?” Light asked Pence.
Instead of directly answering the question, Pence took the time to discuss another issue — foreign policy.
“I would say to any one of my kids, Donald Trump and I are committed to a safer and more prosperous future for their family,” Pence answered.
“The weak and feckless foreign policy that Hillary Clinton promises to continue has literally caused areas of the world to spin apart. The rise of terrorist threats that have inspired violence here at home. We’ve seen an erosion of law and order in our streets and we’ve seen opportunities and jobs evaporate and even leave Ohio and even leave this country,” Pence continued.
“I would tell every kid that if Donald Trump and I have the chance to serve in the White House that we are going to work every day for a stronger, safer and more prosperous American.”
