Donny has more excuses than there are people in China.

"You can't put me in that position," Trump said when a host of Fox News Channel's "Fox and Friends" 

Great to see Trump talking back to his bosses at 'Fox and Friends'!

I never could support Pence for any position, and after listening to him waffle and dodge energy related questions am even more convinced that he could be as bad, even worse than Trump for the US.

Ha ha! A surprise question for arguably the most powerful position in the world and this guy can't even manage it. Just like what Rex Tillerson said.

liberals should want Trump to endorse Pence right? Just like Obama endorsed Biden. Oh wait....

-10 ( +0 / -10 )

Of course he won't. He believes he will still be President in 2025 and beyond.

Trump can endorse whomever he wants. It's Trump that needs to be defeated.

Mike Pence, like Ted Cruz, will never be president. They have the combined charisma and appeal of the slugs that just disrupted JR Kyushu. Now this doens't mean the ultimate nominee won't be godawful in every other way. The party is such that they're all virtual Trumpets now.

Biden and Mayor Pete destructed this week. Back to Beto?

Biden and Mayor Pete destructed this week.

Destructed? Trump accused of sexual assault. Again.

Can you endorse a candidate from prison. or from Russia?

Thats what is holding Donny back, he doesn't know where he will be.

Biden and Mayor Pete destructed this week

Is it alternative facts week already?

What does this have to do with this story? Oh - NOTHING.

Pence is a nightmare for any non-fundamental Christian voter. He scares Catholics!

You are clearly holding them to higher standards than you expect of the president.

You have to do that to criticise them.

Trump self-destructs on a daily basis, but the trumplets and slugs from the swamp are safely blinkered from the reality of their leader's audible and visible mental deterioration on the job.

Trump wants a hereditary successor. Ivanka or Don Jr. Or maybe both on the same ticket.

Pence is just window dressing to remind evangelicals that this is a Christian presidency. Trump doesn’t think much of Pence one way or the other.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Of course he won't. He believes he will still be President in 2025 and beyond.

He's gonna get a Constitutional amendment passed that will allow him to run for a third term. Tee hee!

In the meantime we still don't see any endorsement from Obama for his VP of eight years even though Biden is actively running for president in 2020. Go figure.

Somebody should ask religious Pence how he feels about his administration caging and killing children.

That's why he maintains that 44% approval even with all the lies told about him by the media.

Trump accused of sexual assault. Again.

Yeah, this time it was somewhere in the mid-1990s. She's not sure which year it was.

Somebody should ask religious Pence how he feels about his administration caging and killing children.

Somebody should ask the Democrats why they refuse to do anything about the humanitarian crisis on the border.

Mike Pence is not part of the planned Trump dynasty, blood relatives only.

Really, is that something to boast about? With a strong economy(despite Trump) it should have been much higher.

FYI, Nixon has a 48% approval rating around the same period in his tenure.

His supporters don’t see it that way. He’s ‘telling it like it is’ rather than the lies put about by the haters and losers.

Maybe he got this forthrightness from his German heritage. I’ve found Germans refreshingly straight. His father was born in Germany after all.

Serious question here. Do Trump supporters actually like Pence? Seems like he's just kind of tagging along for the ride, and nobody would notice if he disappeared today or tomorrow.

Can any of the Trump supporters give us their opinion on him?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

You are correct, don’t really care about Pence.

Same as no one cared about Biden during the Obama years.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

You are correct, don’t really care about Pence.

Didn't ask about Biden, but sure, you aren't wrong. So, would you like to see him run in 2024? Would you see yourself voting for him if he did?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Based on the quality of the 2020 Dem candidates and assuming these same people will run again in 2024, yes I would grudgingly vote for Pence.

If Dems have someone else actually legitimate by then, probably not.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Pence is pleasant. Seems like a decent chap. Not sure I'd want him for president if there were other options though. I think 2024 could see a surprise ticket of Condi Rice and Nikki Haley, perhaps with a dark horse candidate like Ben Crenshaw sneaking on.

Har! That being said though, zichi, it is entirely possible Don Jr will be the next president following the 2024 elections. Then Ivanka, then Barron!

Don’t forget the family dog, Hannity. He might run in the future.

Also in the interview, Trump criticized Fed chairman Jerome Powell and said his biggest mistake was choosing Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.

That was a big one all right. At least he didn't choose Mitt Romney to replace Tillerson as Sec. of State, that would have been a disaster.

Don’t forget the family dog, Hannity. He might run in the future.

Har! He'd still be better than Obama was!

Sounds like a great idea to me.

Oh, dear lord, yes!

I never met a VP that was just a ballpark knock out of any President to be honest..he is after all...the VP.

and nobody would notice if he disappeared today or tomorrow.*

That goes for all of them..Quail, Gore, Cheney, Biden....

Can any of the Trump supporters give us their opinion on him?

He’s a deeply devoted and devout Christian, another reason why the some Dems don’t want to impeach Trump, if they did and he WERE to be removed from office, Pence would step in and not only would he carry on the Trump legacy, but he would be a landslide with the Evangelicals, which is every Democrats nightmare.

Hannity would be a bulldog - plump, lazy, fiercely loyal and full of gas.

Trump would be a borzoi - long fluffy hair, limited intelligence and used to listening to a Russian master.

Obama was border collie - elite intelligence, sharp and good at dealing with low intelligence bleaters.

Lazy? Hardly, ratings giant, now there you go.

Trump would be a borzoi - long fluffy hair, limited intelligence and used to listening to a Russian master. 

Mueller, 17 angry lawyers and 40 FBI say, No.

Obama was border collie - elite intelligence, sharp and good at dealing with low intelligence bleaters.

And also useless, weak and thankfully those 8 years of a nightmare was finally over.

Anti-Trumpers can't comprehend Trump isn't the buffoon their garbage media makes him out to be.

So, you love dictators, too! Well done!

"Anti-Trumpers can't comprehend Trump isn't the buffoon their garbage media makes him out to be."

Even Fox is calling him out these days, and his own pollsters. Who's the garbage, my friend? Tee-hee... oh my! Twiddle-dee dee!
