Student Bullied For Posting Photo With Pence Says She Would Post It Again
A college student was harassed for posting a photo with Mike Pence from her days as a congressional intern.
McKenzie Deutsch interned with Rep. Kathy McMorris Rodgers and got a rare opportunity to pose with the vice president for a picture.
She was afraid of being "shunned" by her peers, but she posted the photo anyway, after which she got texts and comments asking why she would stand next to someone who is “a threat to human rights everywhere.”
“How many LBGTQ folks do you need to help send to conversion therapy in exchange for reproductive rights from Pence?” another wrote.
One responded with one word: "B***."
"It's something that I've seen all over my college campus in the classroom and outside of the classroom," the Scripps College junior told "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday.
"We're all American and I respect the office of the vice presidency," she continued, adding that she would post the photo again.
"Regardless of who the vice president was, I still think it's a cool opportunity and anyone should be excited about that."
