When you’re named Mike Pence, you’re going to receive a lot of backlash. Even if you’re not the Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who is kind of, sort of, an incredibly abhorrent character.
He is a software developer, and he is passionate about programming.
I'm a liberal software engineer, not a Republocrat bigot. Send your hate-tweets to @GovPenceIN— Mike Pence (@mikepence) July 13, 2016
Also, because I am seeing press inquiries in my notifications (and can't keep up), I have opened up my DM to the public. Be nice.— Mike Pence (@mikepence) November 16, 2016
Despite being a regular, seemingly good guy, and making the distinction on his Twitter page, Mike's been getting trolled pretty hardcore.
@mikepence You r a clear and present danger to our country? You need locked up!!— Lisa Meyer (@ljmeyer3) November 6, 2016
Raging Racist @mikepence Continues to supprot an ALL WHITE and ALT-RIGHT campaign. A Political Coward.— Richard L. Bodor (@Richard_L_Bodor) November 6, 2016
But Mike, being the internet mastermind that he is, shut down all of his haters with one genius meme.
Seriously. Who could bounce back from that?
Mike's followers were entirely pleased about his meme choice.
@mikepence you, sir, are excellent.— Adam Amin (@adamamin) November 16, 2016
@mikepence Tweet of the damn year.— Rich MacLeod (@richmacleod) November 16, 2016
@mikepence nice, would buy you a drink.— silver ball'r beats (@DJCPI) November 16, 2016
And many offered up their sympathies, with some in the same sad boat.
And others are calling for this Mike Pence to step up as Vice President.
@mikepence please be vice president instead— it can happen here (@spintheiryarns) November 16, 2016
Wouldn't be a bad trade. In fact, we really like the sound of it. Think about it, Mike.
