This is a joke, right? We mean, Mike Pence, aka the anti-choice, anti-feminist, anti-LGBTQ Vice President, is receiving an award for helping women and it isn’t fake news?
The award in question is the “Working for Women” award given out by the Independent Women’s Forum, a conservative nonprofit. And shocker — Kellyanne Conway sits on the board.
Hmm… this doesn’t seem rigged at all…
In a press release, the IWF explained that “the award recognizes an individual who values free markets, works to create a more dynamic and innovative work world, and celebrates the valuable contributions women make to society.”
As a reminder, here are all the things Pence did to supposedly “work for women:”
- Signed a bill to force women who get abortions to bury their fetal remains
- Killed funding to Planned Parenthood while the governor of Indiana
- Called LGBTQ couples a sign of “societal collapse”
- Voted against equal pay for women three times while in congress
Yup, he’s a keeper!
Pence will receive the award next Wednesday. No word yet on how many protestors will show up to the ceremony.
