“Laughable and absurd.” “Disgraceful and offensive.” “Categorically false.” Vice President Mike Pence wants to make it perfectly clear that he is not considering a run at the presidency in 2020.

His statement was in response to a report that Pence and a number of other Republicans appear to be positioning themselves, as President Trump faces low poll numbers and the ongoing Russia investigation. Too soon to be talking about 2020? Remember, Trump did file his reelection paperwork almost immediately after taking office.

How about some ‘straight talk?’ Mike pence knows that if he doesn’t inherit the presidency because Trump is impeached, he sure as heck is going to run for the office in 2020.
