Team Pence on Sunday denied reports that VPOTUS signaled to GOP donors that he wouldn’t exactly be crestfallen if Trump was impeached and he had to take over.
But in an interview Monday, Pence Press Secretary Marc Lotter passed on a chance to rule it out completely:
Hallie Jackson: These steps are happening. Hypothetically, if the President were, for whatever reason, decided not to run in 2020…are you saying Vice President Pence would not step up and take that role?
Team Pence: Well, I don’t– I don’t talk about hypotheticals–
HJ: Well, you do talk about hypotheticals. We talk about hypotheticals all the time. So…are you ruling out that possibility?
TP: What I’m saying is, [talks in circles].
Expect [redacted] assets to manufacture links between Pence and Pizzagate and/or Seth Rich shortly.
UPDATE: That was fast…
