INDIANAPOLIS — After Donald Trump lost Monday’s debate against Hillary Clinton, his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, initially told the media that his guy did great because he was himself and because he spoke for average Americans.
But things changed quickly after Pence received a call from Dr. Maria Oquendo, the president of the American Psychiatric Association. Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was with Pence when he received Dr. Oquendo’s call.
Dr. Oquendo gave Pence her detailed psychiatric evaluation of Trump, based on his performance in the debate, as fitting all the signs of a classic narcissistic personality disorder.
Pence’s advisers, including Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas), told him that the only safe thing to do politically would be to simply walk away.
Pence’s phone call to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus did not take him completely by surprise. “Mike,” Preibus said, “I’ve been expecting this for quite some time. You’re doing exactly the right thing.”
Priebus then convened an emergency meeting of the Republican National Committee, which promptly tapped Cruz, the runner-up in the primaries, to replace Pence. “It’ll be a good way for us to restrain Donald if we can,” Priebus explained to associate solitary reporter Melissa Martin.
After learning of Pence’s defection from Priebus, Trump had had enough. He quite the race as the candidate of the political party which he despises.
But Trump vowed to keep fighting and immediately created the Trump’s Rump Republican Party. Its main platform consists of building casinos everywhere where they are not needed.
“I am the creator of my own comic book, and I love living in it,” Trump explained to associate solitary reporter Jeanne Smith, repeating the statement quoted in Michael D’Antonio’s 2015 book, Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, at page 211.
Priebus was close-mouthed about whom he would replace Trump with. “Maybe Rick Perry,” Priebus explained to Martin.
