It’s Vice President Mike Pence’s birthday, a day for us to offer him our sincerest well-wishes as he enters a new year of life.
Oh, JK, this is the guy who thinks we can electrocute the gay away and who wants the law to require women to cremate or bury miscarried and aborted fetuses and who made it legal for businesses in Indiana to discriminate based on sexual orientation and who blocked Syrian refugees from settling in Indiana. Basically, he’s the worst. The internet gets that. That’s why it stepped right up when Speaker Paul Ryan asked Twitter to wish Pence a happy birthday and offered some very appropriate responses.
Chelsea Handler sent him a birthday message
One guy made him a birthday card

Some simply took it as an opportunity for a roast
Let me ask my husband for permission. 🙄

LOL, because he’s super-weirdly restrictive about what his wife can do without permission! Good one!
Some focused on his political history
I'll wish him a HBD when he gets his hands outta my pants and stops trying to push his archaic reproductive limitations on me.

Others made jokes that Pence was sure to really appreciate, you know, with that shining sense of humor of his
Give him a kiss and a few butt smacks for me.

Others just flat-out refused to wish him a happy birthday…
with all of his discriminatory practices, and the GOP's continued support for a corrupt president, i'll be withholding any well wishes.

…or made pretty specific birthday wishes for the vice president
I hope he suffers painful diarrhea for the rest of the week.

There were references to investigations into the current administration…
…and comparisons to the religious extremists Pence attacks on the regular

Lots donated to Planned Parenthood, a vital organization Pence has fought to defund

Luckily for Mike Pence, none of this birthday hate means anything, because Eric Trump confirmed critics of the Trump/Pence presidency are “not even people.”
