ABC News Uses Mike Pence’s Christian Faith to Attack Trump Over Coronavirus

An ABC News anchor used Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith to accuse President Donald Trump of killing Americans through negligence.

Interviewing Pence on ABC’s “Nightline” in a segment on the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, anchor Byron Pitts closed the segment by asking him if he used his prayer time to consider how he and Trump have killed thousands of Americans.

“Mr. Vice President, I have a final question for you, and I ask this in a non-political way,” Pitts began, making it clear it was entirely political.

“You are a person of deep faith.  No one doubts that. When you talk to God in your moments alone, do you find yourself worrying at all that people you represent, and care deeply about, have died and will die who did not need to because of steps the federal government did not take soon enough?” asked Pitts.

The question seems to imply God would personally judge Pence for political decisions with which the mainstream media disagree.

Pence did not take the faith-bashing bait.

“Well,” Pence began, obviously disappointed in the personal and political smear disguised as a question. “Thank you for mentioning that we are talking about one American at a time.”

He added, “We wanted the American people to see the numbers so that we understand the challenging days that lie ahead. But I want people to know that our future is in your hands, that if every one of us will do and put into practice the Guidelines for America, that we can bring those numbers down.”

Despite claiming people were dying because Trump did not take action, neither Pitts or ABC News offered any examples.

The interview was pre-taped and Pitts’ question was left in, despite the fact it was a clearly personal attack.

  1. tHIS low life Trump hater could not find anything good that Trump could do. He is going to find fault no matter what actually gets done. WHY? Because he is on the front edge of the election attack to get a Demo in office.
    Now he wants to attack Trump for the economy going bad because most of the Democrat cities led by Democrats to force the shut down of all businesses as possible. No matter what Trump does, this jerk will find fault and claim that it was not enough.
    So when will America realize that Trump is doing good. and the Democrats with 2.2 trillion of added debt is only going to destroy us.

  2. Bryon Pitts does not believe in God. Why would he try to twist is approach to accuse Pence of being guilty for the deaths of Christians.
    IF he were a Christian, he would know that REAL Christians do not fear death. But Pitts is a political hack and does anything he can to attack those who are doing good. May God forgive him.

    • The party and people for hate and division of America for Americans the anti-American democrats and their tools for it the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES, promoting unrest and racism for ratings and profits for years and anything anti-American President Trump, just the perversion of the so-called gay rights, LGBD movement using Faith to attack Christians! Beware people and stop this now and far into the future!

    • Hey Spike, I stopped watching ABC when they refused to vet Obama and did everything in their power to destroy McCain. What they did to Sarah Palin was disgraceful. What a bunch of left wing socialist bums.

      • When I want to know how well Trump is doing, I turn to MSN and see how horrible the alleged reporters treat Trump and his cohorts.
        In this case here one of the big wigs who must be an atheist, slammed Pence.
        What happened to truth in reporting??????????

  3. What else could such a question made as a statement be other than a baited political propagandic ploy. These folks are becoming so obvious that it doesn’t take much to see what they are up too. Many of their audiences ignorantly cheer this underhanded behavior on. It is despicable. I am not very tactful, if that were me I would have called him out by outright asking him, How is that not a political statement when you imply this administration was responsible? I would have further stated being that it is obvious that you were attempting to falsely imply guilt, therefore that question doesn’t warrant being answered.

  4. Byron Pitts is a low life anti American POS. Trump
    has done a great job leading this country..and
    a great job during this crisis. This a great
    country and if you ignorant liberal fake news hacks
    had a clue you would bury your TDS..and help unite
    this country.
    Every American regardless of race or color needs
    to join hands to vote EVERY DemonRAT and
    RINO out of office.
    If you were a REAL REPORTER you would report
    on how Pelosi held our nation hostage…or how
    she committed EXTORTION…or how Shiff
    committed PERJURY during the Impeachment.
    OR how two ILLEGALS just raped a couple of
    eleven year old girls. .BUT NO…FAKE NEWS HACKS

    • Bravo Ross for speaking the truth!! You nailed it!!
      This ABC Bryan Pitts is just another political hack attacking the Trump Administration!
      Today is my birthday & I am self-quarantined reflecting on how far the Trump Haters will go !!
      President Trump did an outstanding job getting our country back! So to imply that he knew about this Coronavirus in November is just more LYING by the liberal media!!
      The View (ABC) lies everyday along with MSNBC, CNN, & ALL

      Citizens need to watch OAN for straight news …. just the facts! Or Newsmax!!
      Enough Already!
      Trump 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  5. Heaven has walls and you must do certain things to enter. Hell has no walls and is wide open! There is no such thing as a Christian Democrat! These POS’s like Pitts know which direction they or anybody related to them are headed. Role on Mr. President. You are the man!!

  6. “Antichrist ” is not just a noun, designating a particular person. It is also an adjective, designating a spiritual attitude.
    Is it clear enough yet that the “Mainstream Media” is “antichrist” at its core?

  7. Bryan Pitts,
    Repent or you will hear these words from the Lord Jesus “depart from Me, I never knew you” … the most devastating words a human being could ever hear !!
    Mike Pence has put his trust in the One who died for his forgiveness & rose
    again for his justification … The Giver of Life … Our Hope of Glory … The Lover of Our Souls … that name which is above every name … The King of Kings & Lord of Lords …”JESUS” !!
    God help America to repent & return to our national model: “In God We Trust”

  8. If President Trump asked everyone in America, “What do YOU want, I will do it for you,” and he did it, the left would find a way to make it bad. It would still not be enuf for them to be happy because no matter what this President does, the left cannot be satisfied. There is just no pleasing them, so why even try anymore?

    • If Trump cured Cancer,
      They’d accuse him of putting oncologists out of business.
      If he walked on water,
      They’d accuse him being afraid to get wet

  9. I quit watching ABC when the daytime news people outraged me with their crap during the last election. I’ve learned during the last election that its day, just like Hillary’s will eventually come to cause retribution for actions.

  10. Byron Pitts is the pits!! Pence prays for wisdom to make the best decisions to save the most lives. And God gave him that wisdom and saved lives when the Pres shut down travel in Jan. He hopes the Gov and Mayor of NY would pray to make better decisions in the future so less people would die next time. Governor should have ordered those ventilators in 2015 when told they would be needed for a future pandemic. And the Mayor hopefully won’t be encouraging people to go the Chinatown to watch a parade and go to the movies as an outbreak is starting.

  11. How would ABC goes so low, as the Nation and the leadership are doing what they could to calm this storm down? I could not believe what a stupid question it was. May God help him to understand, that one day he will turn his life to Jesus

  12. The whole thing is a farce, especially the attacks by the Godless mediaites. My daughter has flue symptoms and the doctors refused to give her the Covid-19 test. They said she should go back to work after three days of no symptoms, but if she has symptoms (which she obviously did, which is why she went to get the test) she should self quarantine for 14 days. What a crock. Why are we allowing these self important idiots be destroying our lives because of a virus that is obviously no worse than many of the flus we have had to negotiate in the past and still do, today. More people die from flu than from Covid-19.
