Vice President Mike Pence is deeply disappointed in the 200,000 husbands and fathers who had allowed women to attend the Women’s March.

“I can’t tell you how let down I feel by the heads of these households who did not simply give their wives and daughters a firm, decisive ‘no’ when they asked to participate in today’s demonstration,” said Pence.

“There are a few men marching as well, so they must be the ones supervising this whole thing, and thank God for that. But I can’t help but feel that these ladies’ custodians—the ones who were supposed to be providing a masculine voice of reason on these sorts of matters—have really come up short today.”

The Vice President had told his 23-year-old eldest daughter that it was simply out of the question when she mentioned she was thinking of attending the march.
