Donald Trump Is Reportedly Picking This Dude To Be His Running Mate
That dude. Up there.
Who’s that dude? Fuck if I know. Some old white guy in front of an American flag or something.
Seems like a perfectly acceptable pick to me. Dude *looks* vice presidential-ish, in the white haired, Joe Biden way.
Does anyone know who he is? Give me a second.
Ohhhh shit. It’s Mike Pence.
According to The New York Times, three different sources have confirmed Trump will select the governor of Indiana, the state where Trump essentially solidified the nomination with a crushing victory, to be his running mate.
Let’s meet Mike Pence. From the Times:
A low-key man largely defined in public life by his Christian faith, Mr. Pence, 57, is seen as a cautious choice of running mate — a political partner who is unlikely to embarrass Mr. Trump, and who may help him shore up support among conservative voters still wary of his candidacy.
His staunch conservative views on certain social issues, like gay rights and abortion, may inject a new set of concerns into the general election debate that have been largely overlooked with Mr. Trump at the top of the Republican ticket.
For Mr. Trump, selecting Mr. Pence would be a sharp departure from habit, and the surest sign yet that he intends to submit to at least some standard political pressures in the general election.
That said, he did once tweet this.
I’m sure they’ll get along just fine.
