They say opposites attract, but what do they attract? Incompatibility, artificial situations, bad jokes, all of the above. This paring couldn't be funnier if Neil Simon wrote it himself, but not when it’s not a sitcom but a reality show. While this is fine for a TV situation comedy, it isn't the right mix for a Presidential campaign. We really should take these seriously.
Mike Pence was in Congress for many years and even though he's very conservative, he was well-liked and respected by his colleagues on either side of the isle. Pence is now the conservative Governor of Indiana, which had been hit hard by unemployment. Gov. Pence brought back jobs and believes that Donald Trump will fix the economy and the Country, but Trump's promises are not based on realistic plans.
Donald Trump is a megalomaniac with delusions of grandeur. Like the good con-man he is, he is very convincing when he talks about "Making America Great Again," but he doesn't explain how to do this in any detail. There's no there, there in Trump Land.
I studied acting many years ago. A good actor takes on the characteristics and personality of the character he is playing. Trump is a showman, and as one he is playing a role. That role is always Trump, 50, 100, and 200 shades of Trump.
I caught the end of a joint interview with the running mates on 60 Minutes. Pence believes everything Trump is saying. I believe that because Pence is such a sincere person he cannot comprehend how disingenuous Donald Trump is. Pence said of Donald Trump, "This good man would be a great President of the United States." Heaven help us, Noooooo!
