“Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, spurned her husband and wouldn`t even say hello to President Trump on Election Day 2016 when it became clear Trump won the White House, a new book about the campaign says.
After Pennsylvania was called for Trump giving him the win, Pence moved to kiss his wife, and she turned away.
`You got what you wanted, Mike. Now leave me alone,` she said, Michael Lewis writes in his book, `The Fifth Risk,` according to an excerpt published in The Guardian on Thursday.”

Karen Pence, hereafter referred to by her pet name “Mother,” is an evangelical Christian who reportedly was disgusted by Trump`s misogynist comments on the “Access Hollywood” tape. Like any evangelical Christian who hasn`t become inebriated on Kool-Aid she finds the president reprehensible.
As the wife of a veteran politician Mother knows that politics makes strange bedfellows, and she wouldn`t be too surprised if she caught her hubby in bed with a 20-something Bernie Sanders bro.
But when Pence agreed to become Trump`s running mate she must have been sick to her stomach. The Bible warns about being unequally yoked with unbelievers, and she must have imagined that the unholy union between her spouse and Trump sealed their damnation.
On election night when it became clear that Trump won the White House, Pence attempted to give Mother a celebratory kiss, but she rudely rebuffed him, saying “You got what you wanted, Mike. Now leave me alone.”
I doubt that Mike has received anything more than a peck on the cheek from Mother the last two years, and she`s probably permanently shuttered her back door, depriving him of the back door action that he craves.
If Mike doesn`t succeed Trump after impeachment or after the end of his term, I`m betting Mother will swiftly divorce him.
