When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president last summer, he was quickly criticized by the media for referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Since that time, Trump's controversial campaign tactics have come under-fire from the press, but his running mate appears ready to defend him at every turn.

Pence on the media

It came as a surprise to many when Trump was able to get through the Republican primary, officially being nominated by the party in July.

During that time, the billionaire real estate mogul made a habit of attacking his conservative opponents, often getting personal in the process. In addition to his foul language and questionable policy proposals, Trump has also been hit with various scandals in the last week, which include the recent release of his tax returns, to possibly violating the Cuban embargo in the late 1980s, and even having his charity foundation accused of soliciting money illegally.

In response to how the media has handled the Trump campaign, vice presidential candidate Mike Pence decided to offer his thoughts during a campaign rally on Wednesday, as reported by The Hill on October 4.

"It’s like almost every day they come up with something new and different,” Pence told a group of supporters in Virginia. "They say, 'Now we got him.' 'He said this.' 'We can parse that," Pence said, asking those in attendance "You with me?" Pence then attacked the media for going after Trump's late-night tweets, saying, "They think they got him, and then they turn on the television the next morning and Donald Trump is still standing stronger than ever before!" Pence was visibly excited during his speech, taking the volume up an extra level, while chuckling and laughing in his anger directed at the media and press, eventually concluding, "This sh*t is fun to watch."

Pence's campaign stop was his final gathering with supporters before he heads to take on Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, in the first and only debate between the running mates.
