He followed it up with a more detailed explanation:
Pence is a closeted gay man who turned his self loathing into a political agenda 2 punish the part of himself he hates most. Enjoy the game!

Pence is infamously anti-LGBTQ. As governor of Indiana, his homophobia nearly ruined the state’s economy. He believes in totally discredited “conversion therapy,” in which quack practitioners use psychological and physical torture to try to turn a gay person straight.
Many people think that homophobes are secretly gay. There is some evidence to suggest that homophobia is sometimes the result of repressed homosexual desire. But that doesn’t mean they’re all gay, or that Mike Pence is gay. Maybe he’s just a weird, gross asshole?
