Vice President Mike Pence dismissed a New York Times report that he is eyeing a 2020 presidential bid as “disgraceful and offensive,” amid news of Republican shadow campaign.
The New York Times reported: “Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago” and “multiple advisers to Mr. Pence have already intimated to party donors that he would plan to run if Mr. Trump did not.”
Pence hit back after he was caught: “Today’s article in the New York Times is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration.”

Mike Pence is like his boss, a liar, so excuse me while I roll my eyes to his statement refuting the New York Times’ claims. Why does he have a super PAC? I can’t recall Joe Biden having one while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. He created one when he left office.
Further, Pence has been making key stops in several early Republican primary states. Um, why? It’s laughable that he would say the people want to divide the administration. It’s already a hot mess and infighting is the norm.
