Mike Pence is homeless after leaving office and 'couch-surfing' with Indiana politicians, report says. Perhaps the however grateful Trump can put him up somewhere. Apparently Pence didn’t have a plan B for the November election, or maybe he’s hoping to borrow Clarence Thomas’s RV. x 📍Trump Hotel, DC – Looks like they drained the...
