Reports suggest President Trump has been asking his trusted advisers about Vice President Pence.
"Is he loyal? Should he remain on the ticket?"
The feedback the president has reportedly received is that while Pence doesn't take anything away from the 2020 reelection campaign he doesn't necessarily ADD anything to it. Trump is going to win Indiana without any help from Pence. If President Trump harbored any suspicion of Pence not adding anything, those suspicions were confirmed yesterday's Oval Office debate with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
Pence. Just. Sat. There.
Not one word. Not a single facial expression. Was it actually VP Pence or a lifelike three-dimensional facsimile? Have the makers of Elf on a Shelf expanded their product line? Elf on a Shelf is so 2010. This year, let your children know they're being silently watched by Pence on a Fence.
The President is trying to make a case for getting the funding we wants for a border wall and he's doing it with a CPR training mannequin.
Is it a coincidence that the day after the VP sat weirdly silent in his chair as if being hunted by a Jurassic Park raptor, former UN Ambassador (and far more useful 2020 VP candidate) Nikki Haley is doing interviews all over television? She walks! She talks! And she can help the GOP win back the suburban moms they lost in droves last month.
You're a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. Demonstrate that your heart actually beats.
