Wait, did that really happen?

Vice President Pence denied that any discussions have taken place in the White House about the possibility of removing President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment in a new interview with CBS News set to air Sunday.
Asked whether any such discussions had taken place between members of Trump’s Cabinet, Pence was adamant that none had occurred.
“No, never. And why would we be, Margaret?” Pence asked CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation.”
Pence blasted the op-ed and the Times in the CBS interview, calling the anonymous author a “disgrace.”
“I think the author of the anonymous editorial, and frankly The New York Times, should be ashamed,” Pence told Brennan.
“[I]t seems to me to be just an obvious attempt to distract attention from this booming economy and President Trump’s record of success,” he added.
You know it just kills me that this administration is still riding on the coattails of the Obama Administration’s economic success, and then trying to take the credit for themselves.
As for Mike Pence it is never a good sign for your president that you have to go on a Sunday talk show and deny that you are working behind his back to remove him from office.
And keep in mind that this whole 25th Amendment thing was first brought up by Steve Bannon in Michael’s Wolff’s book, and how now been confirmed a number of times by others.
So Mike Pence can deny these stories until some color finally comes into his face, but that does not mean that these conversations are not happening.
