Pence Slams ‘Disgraceful And Offensive’ NYT Over Alleging Shadow Presidential Campaign

Pence Slams ‘Disgraceful And Offensive’ NYT Over Alleging Shadow Presidential Campaign

The New York Times has been so desperate for attention lately that they have just come out with anything they can that might get them some sort of recognition.

Apparently, the actual news stream has been so slow that they are now accusing Vice President Mike Pence of running a “shadow campaign” in an attempt to oust President Trump. Well, Pence didn’t much care for their baseless accusations.

This weekend, the New York Times ran a piece claiming that Vice President Pence is getting ready for a Presidential run in 2020, according to his political schedule. (I mean, he’s the VP, is he not supposed to be busy with politics?)

Pence pushed back against the accusations, calling the piece “disgraceful and offensive.”

“Today’s article in the New York Times is disgraceful and offensive to me, my family, and our entire team. The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this Administration.”

The article insinuates that the actions taken by Pence prove that he is prepping for a Presidential run.

The vice president created his own political fund-raising committee, Great America Committee, shrugging off warnings from some high-profile Republicans that it would create speculation about his intentions. The group, set up with help from Jack Oliver, a former fund-raiser for George W. Bush, has overshadowed Mr. Trump’s own primary outside political group, America First Action, even raising more in disclosed donations.

Now this is just my opinion, so take it for what it’s worth, but I don’t see Pence as being so politically ambitious that he would stab Trump in the back by using the Vice Presidential position to line his own pockets and push him even closer to the actual Presidency. In fact, he seems to be doing everything he can to keep the Trump train on the rails.

But Pence wasn’t the only Republican this article claims is setting themselves up for a run in 2020. The New York Times also calls out Ben Sasse, Tom Cotton and John Kasich as potential challengers to President Trump or, as the article claims, in the event that Trump doesn’t run for a second term.

This is utterly ridiculous. It’s much too early to even think about doing something like this and these people are trying to work for their constituency.

Seriously, did NYT hire Alex Jones to come up with their theories?
