Pence Begs Trump Not to Make Him Sit Next to Woman at State of the Union
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Vice-President Mike Pence has begged Donald J. Trump not to make him sit next to a woman during Tuesday night's State of the Union address, sources confirmed on Monday.
According to those sources, an emotional Pence came close to breaking down in tears as he explained that being seated next to a woman other than his wife was a violation of his personal code of behavior.
Pence offered Trump a variety of solutions to the problem, including introducing a third chair between him and the woman where his wife, Karen Pence, could be seated for the duration of the speech, "to make sure that that woman doesn't try anything."
"Let Mother sit next to me, or let me sit on Mother's lap, but don't make me sit next to that woman alone," Pence reportedly sobbed.
According to those with knowledge about the meeting, Trump was less than receptive to Pence's impassioned plea. "God, Mike, you're such a loser," he reportedly said.
