Tweets of the Week: Veepstakes Edition
Mike Pence has been confirmed as the Donald’s running mate.
The veepstakes drama might finally be easing after presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump announced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate on Friday morning. Indianapolis played host as Trump auditioned Pence, Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, and others in a series of meetings and calls to become his sidekick.
Folks had their say online as the “Pence Must Go” slogan was realized, the Indiana governor’s seat opened, and that uncomfortable logo was released. Here are our favorite tweets from the past 24 hours.

I have to believe the staffer who created the Trump/Pence logo was giggling the entire time.

I feel like "trumpence" is some amazing Victorian insult… Something Maggie Smith would call someone.

America, to be clear, this is not what Hoosiers had in mind when we started saying "Pence Must Go" last year.
