With over ten years of experience as a congressman, campaign advisorshope Pence will be able to soothe Republican voters with his governing experience, considering Trump has had no prior experience in politics, NBC News reports. Apparently, Pence impressed Trump’s team with his animated performance at Tuesday night’s rally in Westfield, Indiana.
Though the New York Times cautions voters that there’s a fairly strong chance Trump couldchange his mind and retract his initial decision.
Naturally, Twitter users had a lot to say about Trump’s decision.

Or revealing how underwhelmed they are by the decision.
OK Mike Pence is the first boring thing Trump has done. He might as well have picked a plate of scrambled eggs for VP.

While most of us would rather be in denial about this year’s presidential race altogether.
I don’t know who Mike Pence is, but can we pretend he’s Hunter Pence and start coming up with funny sayings for signs again?

Though, when it comes to Trump, it’s never too early to start cracking jokes.
Prediction: By Sept Donald Trump will have fired Mike Pence & picked someone else to be his VP running mate, he’ll also call him Pencel-dick
