Mike Pence Saw ‘DO NOT TOUCH’ On Critical NASA Tech, So He Touched It (TWEETS)

We already knew Vice President Mike Pence doesn’t trust those funny people in lab coats called scientists. He doesn’t believe them when they say global warming is a thing, he doesn’t listen to them when they say the world is older than 10,000 years old, and he damn sure isn’t going to listen to their goddamn propaganda they have posted about not touching stuff he wants to touch.

Pence was photographed during a visit to NASA touching a piece of equipment adorned with a sign that reads:

Critical Space Flight Hardware
“DO NOT TOUCH”

Fortunately for Pence, Republicans have a long-held tradition of being OK with touching things that don’t want to be touched (just ask any woman who tries to get them to take rape seriously). So he touched it.

Naturally, the internet is having a field day with this, with many wondering if “Mother” (the super-creepy nickname Pence has for his wife) is OK with him touching space things:

Fortunately, Pence didn’t do any damage. In a statement on Pence acting like a four-year-old, NASA explained that touching the surface of that piece of equipment is not going to place lives at risk:

Whether or not he actually did any damage, this latest incident is just another example of how little regard anyone in the Trump administration has for rules, laws, or anything else that doesn’t have a dollar sign by it.
