Vice President Mike Pence might have been the guest of the Colorado GOP, but protesters outside the fundraiser in Denver where he spoke on October 26 made it clear he wasn't welcome. They wore handmaid costumes, a reference to Margaret Atwood's novel about women trying to navigate an overpowering patriarchal society, and carried signs that called for the impeachment of Pence's boss.

Screw you, Mike Pence.
But if President Trump is impeached, then Pence becomes POTUS. And Mike is much more of a social conservative than the Donald.

I love this, but he’s probably never heard of or understood the Haidmaiden reference.
They look so eerie and ominous, this is awesome!!
