Trump Just Gave Mike Pence a New Last Name And The Internet Is Running With It
President Donald Trump just accidentally gave Vice President Mike Pence a new last name, and it’s already starting to stick.
While speaking Thursday evening at the annual Republican retreat in Baltimore, Trump pronounced Vice President Mike Pence’s last name as “pounce.”
America, meet… Mike Pounce.
People on Twitter reacted by mocking the president — and wondering whether the obsequious Pence might change his name to cover up Trump’s error.

Mike Pounce is a great name for a book series about an ultraconservative cat. https://t.co/8vlbrChJJk

Mike Pounce, Scott Free, Tim Apple, Marillyn Lockheed, Pleasure not Paradise, Moon of Mars, Kidney in the Heart, Frederick Douglass’ great things, Covfefe, hamberders, wheel that is older than the wall, people being massacred in Bowling Green, smocking guns. All good, right?
