3. He'd be eclipsed by a cold bowl of oatmeal.

He is as dull as can be. He's an obsequious kissass. And he lies incessantly.

4. Not likely by being elected so, but I can easily see...

...that if Trump can't steal and bluster his way to a win, and can't effectively deny that he has lost, he could very well resign before the end of his term, in hopes of getting a pardon from Pence. That won't get him out of state charges that are likely headed his way, but it would free him from all federal changes.

So, yes, a President Pence for time time span between November 2020-January 20, 2021, that I can see.

6. Actually, it should read, "Handpicked by Paul Manafort at the direction of the Kremlin"

From: https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/pence-exposed-as-part-of-manaforts-right-wing-trans-atlantic-conspiracy/

Pence exposed as part of Manafort’s right-wing trans-atlantic conspiracy
September 17, 2018 1:48 PM CDT By Mark Gruenberg


The Justice Department documents said Yanukovych paid Manafort two million Euros, then equivalent to $2.5 million. Yanukovych is widely considered to be a corrupt puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who ordered Russia’s pro-Trump interference in the election.


And Pence? Well, that’s a direct Manafort tie to Trump – not Ukraine — without all the go-betweens.

Trump originally planned to name then-Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., as his running mate. Manafort inserted Pence, then the governor of Indiana who was going down the tubes politically after companies and conventions fled the state due to Pence’s anti-LGBTQ law.

“Manafort had arranged for Trump to meet with his first choice for the job on July 13: Pence,” Yahoo News reported.” Afterward, the plan was for Trump and Pence to fly back to New York together and a formal announcement would be made, a campaign source said of Manafort’s thinking. Set on changing Trump’s mind, he concocted a story that Trump’s plane had mechanical problems,” forcing Trump to stay overnight in Indianapolis with the Pences. That clinched it.

7. The only way Mike Pence is likely to become President is if

what’s-his-name flat-lines between now and Inauguration Day.

8. Manafort helped pick Pence because he was campaign manager at the time VP picks are usually made

Whether Manafort’s Russian connections had anything to do with the selection of Pence or whether it was entirely coincidental is not yet known.
