On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough explains Nikki Haley's resignation as UN Ambassador by suggesting she is positioning herself for a 2020 presidential run, on the theory that, as Scarborough predicted back in August, President Trump won't seek re-election. Scarborough surmises that Haley wants to get out in front of Mike Pence.

If impeaching Trump is the ultimate goal of the liberal media, fearmongering about a Mike Pence presidency must already be on their minds. That seemed to be the goal of CNN Tuesday when the network had on one of the authors of a new anti-Pence book on both New Day and CNN Newsroom August 28, to ask how the Vice President was really a “Christian supremacist” that all Americans should be worried about.
During Tuesday night’s edition of Erin Burnett OutFront, the eponymous expressed shock that Never Trumper Christine Todd Whitman would actually prefer to see Vice President Mike Pence in charge over President over Donald Trump.

In a move that shows the desperation of the writers of Stephen Colbert’s Showtime animated series, the episode of Our Cartoon President that aired on July 29 shows Vice President Mike Pence confessing to an affair to take the heat off Trump. Pence confesses in a press conference after a trip to Mar-a-Lago with the president and his cabinet.
On Thursday, President Trump tweeted out a threat og levying “large sanctions” against Turkey for their arrest of American pastor Andrew Brunson on trumped up charges of espionage related to the failed 2016 military coup.

Vice President Mike Pence went on a media tour Tuesday to promote Judge Brett Kavanaugh as President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. Needless to say, his CNN stop went as well as you’d expect.

Wade (thus making abortion illegal in one way or another).
HBO proudly aired their star Bill Maher doing stand-up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday night, with a routine centering on mocking President Trump. "Doesn’t everything about this man scream microdick? The bragging, and the buildings with my name on it! And the debates. He was talking about his dick at the debates! That guy is president." Maher went on to suggest Trump "never once brought a woman to orgasm."
Just when it seemed that Michael Moore had finally left the national stage for good, the liberal filmmaker and activist took advantage of comments made this week by comedian Roseanne Barr and President Donald Trump to place the public spotlight squarely back on himself. In a Twitter message posted on Wednesday, Moore stated: “I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me … .”
On Wednesday night’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert, creepy leftist horror-book writer Stephen King accused Mike Pence of being “creepy.” Not only that, but somehow looking like “the mean doctor on a soap opera” who’s a criminal, like a pimp, or a drug dealer. They know how to make liberals laugh at CBS.
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon added his name to the list of liberals sulking over the NFL decision to bar players from kneeling during the National Anthem as he complained that it would "deprive" them of their "First Amendment rights to free speech," and suggested that those who oppose the kneeling will some day realize they were "duped" by President Donald Trump, and that they were "on the wrong side of history" like those who opposed civil rights in 1968. He also concluded the segment by dismissing the practice of playing the National Anthem during games with people standing as "fake pageantry and patriotism" and not "what real patriotism is about."
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd led his show's panel in fretting over the NFL decision to bar players from refusing to stand during the national anthem, and seemed open to discontinuing the playing of the anthem at games after New York Times Washington correspondent Charlie Savage suggested it.
