Donald Trump has been called impulsive, disorganized, and a messy bitch who lives for drama. If reports from at least two sources regarding the process of ultimately picking Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate are true, he is all of that and more.
This afternoon, just hours after Trump made Pence’s selection official (on Twitter), CNN’s Dana Bash reported that Trump tried to abort the pick altogether last night:
A half hour later, NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell affirmed Bash’s report with her own:
Sources tell me @realDonaldTrump was on phone till midnight making calls, asking if he could change course on VP pick— Kelly O'Donnell (@KellyO) July 15, 2016
It’s possible that Bash and O’Donnell have the same source, or that they have two different sources working in cahoots to embarrass Trump. Of course, there are a whole host of people who might want to slime Trump by painting him as indecisive and bumbling, starting with the reported VP finalists he did not pick, and finishing with the myriad bitter ex-campaign staffers who may or may not relish leaking damning info to the press.
