President Trump’s administration has been taking fire since its inauguration, and in recent days, Vice President Pence has been picked apart for being extra careful not to fall prey to extramarital affairs, even if that means his wife -Karen- has to be at his side for every function and on every trip, whether or not she actually has official business there or not.
According to Slate, this means that Vice President Pence doesn’t trust himself around women and is, therefore, evidence of a “pretty radically retrograde mindset on the part of its adherents, one that doesn’t respect women as humans with thoughts and skills to contribute but rather sees them primarily as sexual temptations.”
As you can imagine, liberals jumped on this like Dolphins in their element.
I see a lot of tweets dismissing the Pence story, i.e., who cares what a man and his wife decide is best for their marriage? I get that, but

However, the White House has had its fair share of sexual scandals. Over the years, at least 10 US presidents have brought the office into disrepute, including Bill Clinton (Monica Lewinsky and Ginny Flowers), John F. Kennedy and his notorious serial affairs (Ellen Rometsch, Mimi Alford etc), Dwight D. Eisenhower (Kay Summersby), George H. W. Bush (Jennifer Fitzgerald).
Shouldn’t it count for something that VP Pence is trying to walk the straight and narrow? Besides, doesn’t it smack of ‘double standards’ that male lecturers are told to leave doors open when they have females in their office but because the VP never takes dinner alone with another woman, he’s disrespectful of women?
