Many want Trump impeached. What many do not realize is that Vice President Mike Pence is much more dangerous than Trump and the way he handled this Puerto Rican woman's complaints is probative.
A Puerto Rican woman confronted Pence who challenged him on the administration's response. The Vice President's handling was impeccable.

"Don’t go to San Juan," said Everlinda Burgos. "Go inside the country, like where I live. I live in Naranjito, that’s inside the country. You’re not going to see nothing outside the country. Right now, inside the country is where you’re going to see the disaster. Where you can’t -- there’s towns you can’t go in. You don’t know the people that has died there because they don’t know, they don’t have no communication. You know? So, right now they say 18 people died. No, no, no. We have more people died. But we don’t have no communication. So, go in."
After Burgos said a few more words about the conditions in Puerto Rico, about the unreported deaths, and more, Pence had a very empathetic answer.
"Well, we’re going to work every part of it," the Vice President said. "We’re going to help Puerto Rico recover, and you’ll be here. You’ll be fine, your son, your family, and then you’ll be able to go home, right? ... There is no place like home. ... Can I give you a hug."
Mike Pence and most Republicans' policies are no different than Donald Trump's policies. Trump is simply too brash to get many of them into law. Mike Pence, on the other hand, has the style and discipline to use a Republican Congress to his advantage. Those who want Congress to impeach Trump better think twice. Mike Pence just may be the Donald Trump you fear.
