I'm sure Bono will receive plenty of blowback for cozying up to Mike Pence but who cares. The man knows what he is doing, and he's putting politics aside to continue the dialogue of AIDS relief in Africa.
This isn't the first time Bono has been chummy with Republicans. He single-handedly convinced (then) President George W Bush to increase US aid to Africa by $5 billion which also included help from Pence, who was an Indiana congressman, to get the AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) passed in 2003 and then renewed in 2008.
Bono also jokingly called Pence, "The second busiest man in America."
