Donald Trump Reportedly Jokes About Mike Pence Wanting To 'Hang' Gays

According to The New Yorker, those extreme views haven't missed the attention of the president himself, who, despite choosing Pence as his right-hand man, reportedly likes to "let [him] know who's boss" every now and then.

The legal scholar reportedly said if the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many states would legalize abortion on their own, prompting Trump to say to Pence, "You see?"

The conversation turned to LGBT rights, The New Yorker has reported - at which point Trump motioned to Pence and cracked a dark, dark joke.

Trump's second-in-command - and next-in-line for the presidency, should any impeachment be successful - is the most homophobic politician to hold such a high office in recent history. Throughout the cold open, Trump continues to check in with Pence, finding new reasons to tell Pence to bail on whatever situation he's gotten into.

As Indiana governor, Pence signed the 2015 Religious Freedom Act, which allowed businesses to discriminate against gays.

Since the publication of the article, the report has made a splash on social media.

Bottom line: Trump knows that Pence is a right-wing Christian extremist with a faith based hatred for LGBT people, and he thinks it's amusing. In 2002, he declared that "educators around America must teach evolution not as fact but as theory", alongside such theories as intelligent design, which argues that life on Earth is too complex to have emerged through random mutation.

Mike Pence, the Vice President of the United States, does not believe in evolution. Drollinger describes Catholicism as "a false religion", calls homosexuality "a sin", and believes that a wife must "submit" to her husband. Administration members who attend include Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Mayer writes.

Pence's views on LGBTQ rights have often been sharply criticised for his hardline Conservative values.
