Donald Trump finally held that press conference he promised to introduce his running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Twitter had a field day.
I must add that the body language between Trump and Pence was stiff and awkward. This is a shotgun wedding for Trump. It was strange that Trump left the stage after introducing Pence. That’s after he spent most of his 29-minute intro talking about himself.
Donald Trump picked Mike Pence with all of the enthusiasm of someone third wheeling their ex.

"Let's come together."* -Mike Pence

Here's the thing though: Pence needs this moment, and Wednesday, to intro himself to Americans who have no idea who is he / what he's done
