Before the election but after her husband had been chosen vice-presidential running mate, Karen Pence had a choice reaction to Donald Trump and his "Access Hollywood" boastings.

You aren't the only one!

That's one bombshell report from The Atlantic's new story on Vice President Mike Pence.

Mr Pence's wife Karen was even more disgusted and called Mr Trump "reprehensible - just totally vile", the U.S. magazine the Atlantic reported.

You ain't alone, sister!

In the article, author McKay Coppins writes about a number of Republican-led efforts to change the presidential ticket after the October 7 release of the recording of Trump bragging to tv host Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women.

A former campaign aide said that his wife Karen was "disgusted" by the leaked tape. Trump quickly apologized for what he called "locker room talk" but he reportedly has since privately denied that his voice is on the tape. The Atlantic reports that it's unclear whether Trump had knowledge of the conversation and if the group ever made an offer. A White House advisor said that Trump is prone to teasing Pence about his religious beliefs and other issues. "He thinks the Pences are yokels", the adviser told the magazine.

"Regarding The Atlantic's exhausted, false claim about the VP during the campaign - we denied this in the article and deny it again today".

The news of friction between Trump and the Pences was received with interest on Twitter.

"[Trump] sees the calls for [Roy] Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous "Access Hollywood" tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women's genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after".
