Mike Pence Denounces David Duke but Won't Call Him 'Deplorable'

"I’m not in the name-calling business," Pence said.

“I’m not in the name-calling business, Wolf. You know me better than that,” Pence told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer today.

The Clinton camp immediately hit back.

Asked about Duke again on Fox News just moments later, Pence doubled down.

"I'm not a name-caller, I don't play that game, but we have denounced him repeatedly," he said.
