Donald Trump has, apparently, picked Indiana governor Mike Pence as his vice-presidential candidate.
For those who are now saying, “Who?” allow me to remind you of something I wrote about a year-and-a-half ago. Yes, this is the douchebag who is all in favor of allowing people to discriminate against, and mistreat, minorities for religious reasons.
He’s a pretty terrible person, from what I can tell, supporting all sorts of extreme positions, none of which are very good. He’s kind of like Trump in many ways, only he has at least something of a filter.
This is, in many ways, a great chance not for Trump, but for Hillary. If she now picks someone other than an old, white male, as her VP, just imagine the contrast. Imagine seeing her and someone like Julian Castro up on a stage, and then contrast that with these two old assholes.
Trump has delayed announcing officially who his VP choice is, due to the mess in Nice. So Pence could still turn out to not be the one. But for now, I feel good about this guy. He’s as terrible as his lord and master, and only helps Hillary.
