Conservative commentator and ex-Republican George Will appeared on MSNBC with Chris Matthews Monday to discuss the bizarre relationship between Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump.
Will noted that the mind-boggling “love story” between Trump and Pence is notable because it only goes one way. While Pence shows complete admiration and devotion to Trump, the president shows little loyalty in return. Other vice presidents, Will argued, have been able to fulfill their roles without debasing themselves — but not Pence.
Matthews played a series of clips showing Pence’s relentless subservience and excessive praise of Trump, pointing out how odd the dynamic is given the pair’s divergent histories.
