Trump Flubs VP Announcement

Donald Trump is supposed to be an amazing business manager and organizer. If only he could use some of that organizational talent to not bungle his running mate announcement. Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Donald Trump has chosen Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate, a source with direct knowledge confirms to NPR's Mara Liasson.

A rollout in New York City had been planned for Friday at 11 a.m., but Trumptweeted Thursday evening that "in light of the horrible attack in Nice, France," he was postponing that announcement.

Even with sources and multiple news organizations reporting Pence has been offered the job, Trump called into Fox News Thursday night and said he hasn't "made my final, final decision." He underscored that the two other finalists, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, were still in the mix, calling both of them "fantastic" people.

But Pence is the only one who has a clock ticking. He cannot run for both re-election as governor and for vice president, and he must withdraw by noon Friday so that the state party can replace him on the ballot.”*

    Trump said it best… “look at what he’s done for Indiana”. This guy is
    worse than Trump.

      Indiana spent $210.4 million less than it took in during the 2015 budget
      year that ended June 30, growing the state’s reserve funds to a year-record
      $2.14 billion. Public record. That is the kind of leadership we need.

    In the UK Trump is a northern slang term for a fart (genuinly, it is!). In
    this case a stale old fart.

      A better and unbiased channel is SecularTalk, it’s technically part of the

      getting emotional at times he’s fair.

      Tell me how do free government programs help poor people. Critical thinking
      and evidence show unmoral distribution of wealth to the dumber lower class
      is not helping them at all. They just think it is helping them.

      Nah…only the entire scientific community supports evolution because there
      is overwhelming undeniable evidence. Even the Catholic church has been
      supporting it for a while now. It’s just backward thinking arrogant
      anti-intellectual morons like you that don’t. Yeah…go prove your
      delusions are real, you’ll win a Nobel Prize. Like all lunatics who are
      completely out of touch with reality, you’re sick in the head and need

    best choice!

      important and what you’re saying is too ground breaking right?

    I’ve supported Trump this entire time, but Mike Pence is an absolutely
    atrocious VP pick. In no way, shape or form was he the “safe pick”; in
    fact, the moment it was announced Hillary hit him with an attack ad.

    Trump has never been anti-gay. Back on Miss Universe he even pulled strings
    to allow a transgender to compete, something even I wouldn’t of allowed(due
    to anatomical differences). Pence nullifies all of that.

    DUMP Mike Pence and replace him with Michael Flynn, or this is Hillary’s

      entire existence prior to this lol

    • Ivan Garcia
      July 16, 2016 at 5:18 AM

      On another video Cenk was rambling about Pence, but he said something that
      made me wonder: maybe he picked Pence just to give the conservative donors
      some comfort and confidence that they still have a foot in the White House,
      but will then effectively oust him after the election, and replace him with
      a VP more Trump’s style. It would be fantastic television: “Michael Richard
      Pence, you’re fired.” #MakeAmericaGreatAgain
