Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway joined Fox News’s “Media Buzz” on Sunday to talk about Vice President Mike Pence’s decision not to dine alone with a woman who isn’t his wife.
Hemingway explained that some pundits’ over-the-top reaction to Pence’s statement about his marriage shows newsrooms need more diverse attitudes.
“So when you encounter something like this you don’t treat it like gorillas in the mist,” she said.
“It’s really about a battle between a progressive mindset and a more traditional mindset that acknowledges human nature,” she said.
“It is kind of weird for a politician to actually hold his marriage in such high regard, but the idea that this would be something to mock is not necessarily healthy given how much damage is caused by marital infidelity,” Hemingway said. “We should probably have more conversations about how to be faithful, and what makes a good marriage, because it’s very good for men, women, and their children to have healthy marriages.”
