Vice President Mike Pence looked as if he was caught by Mother (how he refers to his wife) in a room alone with a woman. People can see him closing his eyes and trying to wish himself away from the chair where he sat between a strong woman going toe-to-toe with the would-be leader of the free world. Now, why would he do that?
The vice president kept his body so still, he almost did not appear alive. Maybe, he was trying to become invisible during the adults’ disagreement. Certainly, the other two were expressing themselves not only through their words, but their active body language. White House reporter for CBS News, Kathryn Watson, captured the trio on tweet:
‘This image of Pence says so much. Via Reuters.’
It got embarrassing when Pence did not breathe for 20 minutes and began checking a wristwatch that was invisible to everyone but him:
‘Pence checking his nonexistent watch for 2020’
Mark Harris urged someone to help the vice president in his tweet:
‘This is horrifying! Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer are just carrying on arguing as if Mike Pence is still alive! Somebody help him!’
It was a little frightening to realize that the number two man freezes over a little disagreement. Imagine what he would do if he had to become number one man? It was not clear whether the back-and-forth was what bothered Pence or whether he was trying so hard to not take sides that he became immobile. Clearly, the little white fox was uncomfortable.
Was it possible that he realized that he was sitting between the president of these United States and the woman who could potentially become the first woman president of our great country. Trump has been up to his knickers in swamp muck, wherever he walked. It was possible that Pence was somehow involved in the president’s Russian problems.
The third person in line to the presidency will be Representative Pelosi in three weeks, when the House brings its new 40 members into the place. Time will tell.
