The Funniest Tweets About Mike Pence Show People Are Turning To Laughter Rather Than Tears
On Thursday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced his running mate will be Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, best known for legalizing discrimination against the LGBT community in his state with a "religious freedom" bill, and getting trolled by menstruating women after trying to enact a ban on abortion due to by fetal abnormalities and force women to bury or cremate aborted fetuses. Americans now have two choices: stare at the ceiling moaning "Noooooo" from now until November, or cheer themselves up with this roundup of the funniest tweets about Mike Pence that I could find on short notice. I recommend the latter.
UPDATE: Trump confirmed Pence as his vice presidential running mate in a tweet Friday morning and said he would host a news conference on Saturday.
The pairing of these two polarizing characters is disturbing to plenty of people, but crying, screaming, or intentionally putting oneself into a diabetic coma by eating literally all the ice cream won't help anyone. And as evidenced by the Periods for Pence movement, the new potential vice president is infinitely fun to troll. His politics may make some people sick, but we all know that laughter is the best medicine. The question is, now that he's on Team Trump, will the governor start clapping back on Twitter like The Donald loves to do?

This was the first one I saw when I began my search, and it's just flawless. Why did anyone else even bother to tweet?

OK, technically this is making fun of Trump, but that is also a very worthwhile activity.

Let's all try to imagine the menu. I'll go first. Salad – all greens and no dressing – followed by a baked boneless chicken breast, raw broccoli, and white rice that could stand to be a little softer. A handful of walnuts for dessert.
