And some good #FF—> Also @MatthewNussbaum, @JDiamond1, among others... per Trump campaign aide, Pence's tone was "disappointed" and "frustrated." He was not happy about the comments, or the ensuing fallout.Must have been awkward phone call when @JebBush asked his cousin why that wasn't leaked in February.
Retweeted by Ashley Parker"Tic Tac respects all women." Well, then. morning, Pence called Trump and told him he had to handle the next 48 hours alone. He didn't think he'd be an effective surrogate.Pence watched the video when he got back to the Gov. Mansion last night and immediately realized the severity of Trump's comments.NEW: @NBCNews has learned Mike Pence is not going to the Wisconsin GOP event today.

Retweeted by Ashley ParkerCan't. Wait. 📚📙't. Wait. the media has become a new favorite of Trump crowds, up there w hauling out protestors and shouting at Mexico to build the wall.It does kinda jibe with @mike_pence on the trail today in Virginia: “From where I sat, Donald Trump won the debate.”
