Mike Pence claims he was bitten by a triple crown winning horse last year, but was he?

If the horse actually bit him I think that makes him my favorite horse now.

Vice President Mike Pence says Triple Crown winner American Pharoah bit him hard enough on the arm during a 2018 visit to Kentucky that he nearly collapsed.

But farm manager Dermot Ryan, who was there as Pence was presented with an American Pharoah halter, said Friday it would be out of character for a horse he described as “sweet.”

“If he gave someone a nasty bite, I’d know it,” Ryan said. He said Coolmore’s Ashford Stud in Versailles was “very honored” to have the vice president visit and called him “very pleasant.”

Pence offered the horse tale Friday at a policy retreat for House Republicans in Baltimore, who face a challenge retaking the chamber in 2020: “In our line of work, you’re going to get bit sometimes, but you keep fighting forward,” Pence said.

The close encounter with American Pharoah, who in 2015 became the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years, came as Pence traveled to Kentucky in March 2018 on behalf of Rep. Andy Barr, R-Kentucky, who faced a competitive race against former Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath.

According to Pence the horse bit him while he was getting his picture taken and this is how he described it:

“I just gritted my teeth and smiled, because you know what? In our line of work, you’re going to get bit sometimes, but you keep fighting forward.”

So let me get this straight.

Pence claims that he was bitten so hard “I almost collapsed” but that he gritted his teeth and smiled? 


I worked on ranches when I was a kid and though I was never bitten, I did see one or two bite marks and NOBODY is going to stand still while that shit is happening to them. 

All this story does is confirm in my mind that nobody associated with the Trump Administration should ever be believed about anything, ever!

    If the horse didn’t get sick afterwards, I doubt it happened.

    That Pence story is a pile of horseshit. And where did the horse bite him? His arm? His leg? His ass? Either way, wimpy Pence would have jumped and his clothes would likely have been ripped.

    But then again, giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe the horse really did bite Pence. If true, then American Pharoah should receive a Fourth Crown called the “I bit that Indiana clown who wasted over $600,000 of tax payers money for ground transportation while visiting Ireland.”

    (By the way, can’t you just picture the Secret Service laughing their asses off while watching Pence get bitten?!)

    What a weird thing to lie about. Looks like his boss’s pathological lying is starting to rub off.

    I sure if he had been really bitten, he would have sued.

    I’m sure that Pence imagined that he was bitten. He was simply terrified at being so close to a horse and thought he might faint.

    Everyone would have noticed if AP had bitten him. Trust me noone stands and smiles while being bitten by a horse.
