Indiana Gov. Mike Pence ran to the loving arms of Faux "news" this Tuesday to do some damage control -- following his disastrous interview with George Stephanopoulos -- where he was lobbed softballs and allowed to play the "I have one black friend" card when pretending his state's newly passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act isn't intended to allow businesses discriminate.

Pence Invokes Selma March in Defense of Bill: ‘I Abhor Discrimination’:

When co-host Steve Doocy paraphrased Reverend Al Sharpton as saying the bill was racist (did he?), Pence cited his participation in the 45th anniversary of Selma.

“Five years ago my wife and my family walked the Edmund Pettus Bridge with John Lewis when I co-chaired the pilgramage to mark the 45th anniversary of Bloody Sunday,” Pence said. “I abhor discrimination. If I was in a restaurant and saw a business owner deny services to someone because they were gay, I wouldn’t eat there anymore. Frankly, that’s how most Hoosiers are.”

“It’s important to me in this process — and we’ll do it through legislation — that people know that Indiana is standing here for religious liberty,” he added. “But there was never any intention in this law to create a license to discriminate.”

Of course no one on there asked Pence about the people he was surrounded with when he signed the bill. They were too busy helping him play the poor oppressed picked on Christian card. He's a victim being mistreated by those meanies in the "liberal media" don't ya' know.
