“I’d rather deal with a simpleton and a puppet than an egomaniac billionaire who is plutocratic and clearly racist and homophobic and misogynistic,” he continued.

“We laugh at what he says sometimes,” he said. “That’s about it.”

Pence has largely been a staunch supporter of Trump since joining the ticket during the campaign.

He publicly rebuked Trump after the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape emerged featuring Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent, but has otherwise consistently backed Trump's agenda and comments.
