WASHINGTON, DC - According to sources, Vice President Mike Pence snuck into the Capitol a few hours before President Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday and smeared Super Glue all over the Democrats' seats so they would be stuck sitting down for the entire speech.
"He's been a prankster ever since he was a Congressman," said one Republican aide. "Plastic wrap over the toilets, unscrewing the caps on the cafeteria salt shakers - his hijinks are legendary."
Thanks to the VP's wacky stunt, the unwitting Democrats were unable to stand and applaud for the duration of Trump's speech, as he talked about Americans paying less taxes, record low unemployment, businesses promising thousands of new jobs, and even when the assembly honored the parents of two girls killed by MS-13 gang members.
Instead of being able to rise to their feet and clap with the Republicans, the Democrats were forced to sit the whole time with dour looks on their faces. What a priceless gag!
Classic Mike Pence!
