Borowitz Report: Pence Considering a Run for Presidency–in 1820

Andy Borowitz, a humorist for The New Yorker, writes today that Mike Pence is seriously considering a run for the Presidency–in 1820.

According to several prominent Republican donors, Pence is already laying the groundwork for such a campaign, outlining what he believes are the most serious challenges facing 1820 America.

In a conference call with donors last week, Pence reportedly said that, as President, his No. 1 priority would be to repeal and replace the Bill of Rights.

He offered a sneak preview of a potential 1820 stump speech, in which he unleashed a brutal attack on the Bill of Rights’ author, James Madison, and called for the development of the telegraph key.

This satire reminds us that Trump has no ideology; he just does whatever he thinks will appease his evangelical base. Pence, however, is deeply ideological. He is no joke.
