Snapshots: Trump’s vulgarities awkward for Pence

Indianapolis — Mike Pence has long described himself as a “Christian, a conservative and a Republican in that order.”

Pence’s advocacy for Donald Trump came to a screeching, perhaps temporary, halt Saturday in the hours after Trump released a video apologizing for 2005 remarks in which he describes his aggressive conduct toward women.

Pence said in a statement about Trump that he won’t “condone his remarks and cannot defend them.”

“We pray for his family and look forward to the opportunity he has to show what is in his heart when he goes before the nation tomorrow night,” the Indiana governor said.

Kaine says Trump audio ‘much more than words’

Washington — Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine says a recording that captured crude language from Donald Trump reveals “a pattern of sexual assault” by the Republican presidential nominee.

Kaine said “it is much more than words.”

The Virginia senator made the comments Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Kaine noted that Trump has previously made disparaging remarks about women. He said, “There’s kind of a piece of the jigsaw puzzle missing in Donald Trump where he does not look at women and consider them as equal to himself.”
