Donald Trump embarrassed himself during his introduction of vice presidential candidate Mike Pence on Saturday, saying he picked the Indiana governor for party unity. Huh?

Donald Trump Embarrassed Himself During Announcement of Running Mate Mike Pence

Trump talked mostly about himself and attacked Hillary Clinton for 28 minutes before he introduced Pence. I think he may have forgotten what he was at the Hilton Hotel to talk about.

When he was finished veering off into incoherence, he left the stage after introducing Pence, leaving him alone at the podium. There was no standing together before Pence spoke to show unity and strength. There were also no Trump-Pence signs in the room. In fact, the body language between the two men was quite awkward. This is day 2 of Donald Trump’s humiliation of Mike Pence.

The Clinton campaign also weighed in on the embarrassment:  “We were prepared to respond with the many ways in which Mike Pence is the most extreme pick in a generation—a doubling down of Trump’s divisive rhetoric and policies. But after publicly waffling over his own choice, Trump spent more time today making false attacks on Hillary Clinton—several of which could also be leveled against Pence—and talking about his own businesses than his own running mate. It turns out, you can force Trump to make a choice and give him a speech, he’s always going to be Trump.”

Watch Donald Trump embarrass himself yet again:

Many journalists are weighing in on this weird spectacle:

MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid:  “But there’s been something missing, something that hasn’t allowed them to publicly support him, to feel sort of publicly good about supporting Donald Trump. I think that the purpose of Mike Pence is for them to be able to say, “Well, I’m voting because that guy is on the ticket, he’ll shepherd the Supreme Court picks, he’ll be somebody Donald Trump listens to.” I think the flaw of that is, it’s not clear that Donald Trump would listen to Mike Pence or anyone else. He has to have him on the ticket, but I can’t see them campaigning together. It was very awkward.”
