#pnut4prez: Trump Makes A New Friend
No doubt that Donald Trump was feeling loved yesterday. He kicked things off by getting a quasi-apology from Chief Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who “regrets” the things she said but doesn’t deny that she is still thinking them. And then Trump wrapped up the day by announcing his new BFF and running mate: Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
Who The Hell Is Mike Pence?
Well, for starters, he’s not Chris Christie or Newt Gingrich, even though those two were rumored to be top contenders for Trump’s Vice President pick. Pence used to host a conservative radio talk show in the 90s, and although he describes himself as “Rush Limbaugh on decaf,” he wasn’t your typical bombastic talk show host and was considered a rather mellow guy. (We guess Trump wanted to balance the ticket.) Probably his most noteworthy act as governor was signing the controversial Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a divisive issue between LGBT groups and business owners.
