Pence was the first person to be offered the VP position who actually took the bait. At the time, nobody thought Trump would win
Then Trump won, and now Pence has to tie everything Trump has done to his legacy. He took a long, long gamble on Trump not winning and just boosting Pence's profile and it paid off but in a cursed monkey paw curling its finger sort of way. He has the stink of Trump on him forever, but he doesn't have the Trump charisma to be the ideal drunk uncle shouting racist shit at Thanksgiving skill that Trump has perfected for his base.
Pence is a shit person so fuck him anyway. He modeled his political career on Reagan, another senile racist who paved the way for Trump. He supported South African Apartheid and ignored the HIV crisis because it was gay. Pence is also an immense pussy who got so triggered by the animated Disney movie Mulan having a female protagonist that he wrote a whole dumb article about it, and he's such a religious freak that he won't allow himself to be alone with any woman who isn't his wife.
Which I guess is supposed to be reverential to his wife, who he calls "mommy" because it apes Reagan, but it just makes him come off as a budding rapist.
