“We’ve listened to this guy for many, many years in this country on his moral high horse,” Schmidt said. “Assaulting the dignity of gay people, across the board. His moral preening is famous throughout the land.”


“He is the most obsequious of all of Trump’s cultists in the cabinet,” Schmidt continued. “We have never seen such slobbering servility by a high government official in this country than we do with Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PenceScott Atlas: Fauci 'just one person on the task force' Meadows criticizes veteran journalist Lesley Stahl as an 'opinion journalist' Trump plays video of Biden, Harris talking about fracking at Pennsylvania rally MORE and Donald Trump. It is amazing.”

Schmidt’s comments came after Pence said that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerCNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump CNN anchor rips Trump over Stone while evoking Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report: New Hampshire fallout MORE should “wrap it up” in reference to the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

"Our administration has provided over a million documents, we’ve fully cooperated in it and in the interest of the country, I think it’s time to wrap it up,” Pence said in an interview that aired Thursday on the “Today” show. "And I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.”

Schmidt has been harshly critical of Pence in the past. Months ago, he slammed Pence's decision to walk out of an NFL game after some players knelt during the national anthem as “utterly appalling, wasteful, profligate, disgusting behavior.”
