Donald Trump selects Mike Pence as VP

(CNN) — Donald Trump has called Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and offered him the vice presidential slot on his ticket, CNN has learned. Pence has accepted.

The pick sets up a stark clash in styles: a brash presumptive nominee with a tendency to freelance into controversies alongside a cautious former congressional leader who's stuck close to conservative orthodoxy since starting his career in talk radio.

Looks like it's Trump/Pence 2016.

And Trump is like Rodney Dangerfield in "Caddyshack" terrorizing Judge Smails. Which one did you like better?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump abruptly postponed plans to announce his vice presidential pick following a day of rampant speculation, citing the "horrible attack" in Nice, France, that left scores dead.

Trump had planned to hold his first event with his yet-to-be-named running mate Friday morning in New York. He announced the change of plans Thursday evening on Twitter.

Trump is having fun, this announcement was super understated, very unTrumpian, he is playing. My guess is that this is a shot across the the bow of Team Hillary...."oh so you think you know what I will do because that is what I have been doing for a year, Maybe I do, Maybe I dont.

Trump +1.

Trump won't be needing a VP because he's not going to be the next president.

:lol:

Minorities and women are certainly going to feel the love this year.

It's hard to find a better example for why GOP.com: Growth and Opportunity Project was dead on arrival in this Republican Party.

I just can't be sure on this until it's announce. Trump could do anything. But, Pence would be a good choice. At least there would be one conservative on the ticket. As I see in this thread, he's already being attacked by the jokers here.
