This defense by Mike Pence was of course laughable on its face, but it was made even more so by these tweets coming from Trump who was live tweeting the debate..@HillaryClinton & @timkaine think you're #Deplorables & #BasementDwellers. @realDonaldTrump & @mike_pence think you're PATRIOTS #VPDebate pic.twitter.com/zkjfmWOCRq— Official Team Trump (@TeamTrump) October 5, 2016

"Okay Donald I am going to go out there and try to do some damage control and start trying to represent our campaign as one about the issues and not one that engages in childish insults and unprovoked attacks okay?"@Gsimmons03Ginny: @realDonaldTrump ..Kaine is awful, Trump and Pence are the ticket..no more lies, we are ready to see America Great Again!— Donald J.

"Sure Mike that sounds good. I'll be backing you up on Twitter."
"Thanks, wait what?"
Kind of makes you wonder exactly what Mike Pence thought would happen when he joined this ticket?
