TWITTER WAR: Pence Absolutely Destroys Eric Holder — With Four Pictures And Not A Single Word!
Mike Pence is no slouch when it comes to trolling on Twitter.
Of course, he works for KOAT (King Of All Trollers) Donald Trump, so he’s sure to have learned a thing or two off the master.
Some brief background first before we get to Pence’s slam dunk.
Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday appeared on MSNBC, where host Ari Melber asked him: “There is a lot of talk about America being a leader as a democracy, quote unquote, in the 1800s when women and African-Americans couldn’t vote. What kind of democracy is that?”
Holder lit into America with a vicious question for Trump supporters. “Exactly when did you think America was great?”
“It certainly wasn’t when people were enslaved. It certainly wasn’t when women didn’t have the right to vote. It certainly wasn’t when the LGBT community was denied the rights to which it was entitled,” Holder said.
Melber asked Holder if he thought Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan — Make American Great Again — was racist. “Does that phrase echo as discrimination in your ears?” “It takes us back to what I think, an American past that never in fact really existed. This notion of greatness,” Holder said.
So, the vice president mulled these words for a bit, then — without saying a word, using only Holder’s quote — completely annihilated Holder.

Those are at least four times America was pretty “great” — George Washington crossing the Delaware during the Revolutionary War as he led troops against Hessian forces; Marines hoisting the American flag at Mount Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II; Americans landing on the moon and planting Old Glory; and Martin Luther King, Jr., delivering his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial.
Holder, knowing that he’d been fully p’wned, responded in a tweet, saying, “America IS great,” and “can-and must-be greater still,” but that the “Make America Great Again” slogan means “YOU think America is not great now-and is backward looking.”
America IS great. And can-and must-be greater still. “Make America great again” means YOU think America is not great now-and is backward looking. America is at its best when we look forward, embrace an uncertain future and make it ours. That is what defines American greatness https://t.co/ASagCEPMZ5

Twitterers, as they are wont to do, ripped Holder hard.
Nice back pedal, Eric.

Interesting from a person that served in an administration that clearly helped spawn a period of the strongest racial divide we have experienced. An AG that went after no one on Wall Street that caused Global financial collapse in 2008. Yet your simple minded minions applaud,

That is not what you said yesterday. You know your Boss was corrupt and so are you. You got out in time and you new bad things were coming your way. You are an embarrassment to my Country. Surely it is not yours. Pendejo!
