Gov. Mike Pence almost made Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace burst out in laughter this morning when he claimed Trump's Hispanic rallygoers in Miami signaled a big voting turnout for Trump from the Latino community.

Wallace said, "So you think all those Hispanics, sir, are coming out to vote for Trump and not for Clinton? Really?"

It's always about those rally sizes! They know all and they tell all.

To quickly recap, Gov. Mike Pence was boasting to the Fox host that the presidential race has tightened when Wallace decided to get into some specifics.

Wallace asked, "Hispanics are voting early in big numbers in a number of states. Florida, North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada. Are you worried that the polarizing remarks that your running mate, Donald Trump, has made since his opening announcement may come back to beat him?"

Pence replied, "I'm really not. The truth is that Hispanic Americans have the same concerns that every other American does. We want to get this economy moving again. We want our country to be safe. I was just down in Miami this last weekend, saw overwhelming support for Donald this hemisphere..."

See, Hispanic don't care that Trump called them criminals and rapists and denigrated them continually throughout this campaign cycle because -- freedom!

Wallace incredulously replied, "So you think all those Hispanics, sir, are coming out to vote for Trump and not for Clinton? Really?"

Here's where Pence gets really condescending.

"I literally saw it, I stopped by and had some Cuban coffee at a classic stop in Miami. Karen and I had a hard time getting through the place with people that were enthusiastic about Donald Trump's stand for a stronger America."

Cuban coffee shops are at the pinnacle of this election.
