THIS is your Vice President! Mike Pence FTW!
(In case you’re not a long-time gamer like me, FTW is a little slang meaning “for the win.” It’s a way of indicating just how a team managed to beat the other team. Often it’s used sarcastically, so today you could actually say “Ted Cruz Addresses the GOP Like a Spoiled Losing Brat FTW” too.) Well, today we can also say it about our next Vice President, Mike Pence: FTW!
Last night he officially accepted his nomination as Republican Vice Presidential candidate. “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican in that order,” Pence said as he introduced himself. “I thought I’d be spending this evening with all my friends from the great state of Indiana, yet there I was a few days ago in New York City with a man who won 37 states, who faced 16 talented opponents and outlasted every one of them, and along the way brought millions of new voters into the Republican Party.”
As delegates from Indiana shouted, “We like Mike! We like Mike!” He went on. “He is a man known for a large personality, a colorful style and lots of charisma. So I think he was just looking for some balance on the ticket.”
According to Politico, Pence pointed to the Supreme Court, the Second Amendment and foreign affairs as reasons to vote for Trump.
“Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!” the crowd chanted after Pence mentioned Benghazi and Clinton’s “what difference at this point does it make” remark during a subsequent Senate hearing.
“As the proud father of a United States Marine, let me say from my heart, anyone who said that, anyone who did that should be disqualified from ever serving as commander in chief of the armed forces of the United States of America,” Pence declared.
We have the entire speech right here, you can watch it now!
