Pence Recaptured After Fleeing Campaign Bus

http://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/pence-recaptured-after-fleeing-trump-campaign-bus
<snip>
Calling it a “scary moment” and a “close call,” Donald Trump’s campaign officials confirmed that they had recaptured Mike Pence after the Indiana governor attempted to flee the campaign bus in the early hours of Friday morning.

According to the campaign, Pence had asked to stop at a McDonald’s in rural Virginia so that he could use the bathroom, but aides grew concerned when the governor failed to reappear after twenty minutes.

After determining that Pence had given them the slip, Trump staffers fanned out across the Virginia backcountry, where the governor was believed to have fled.

News that Pence had vanished touched off a panic in Indiana, where residents feared that he might return to resume his political career.

He draws a picture in your mind where you see this tuff happening

11. To quote tha movie marshal-- Tommy Lee Jones:

"I want a full pattern search of every outhouse, doghouse, stashhouse, klanhouse, gun nutterhouse, and birther house, for our runaway governor. He is now a fugitive, and he has been on the run for 20 minutes, last seen with a big mac, rc cola, and bag of fries in his coat pocket."

12. "Lamestream Media"

This is where the "lamestream media" gets it all wrong.

The real story is that Pence sneaks out of the bus frequently and needs to be tracked down. He loves his Taco Bell.

And nobody from the Trump campaign should ever be seen "running for the border".
