When it was Marco Rubioâ€™s turn to try taking down Donald Trump during the primary, Trump branded him â€œLittle Marcoâ€ who was a choker.Â
Rubio had infamously panicked under the national spotlight. While delivering the live, nationally televised, official Republican Party response to President Obamaâ€™s State of the Union, Rubio reached for a bottle of water. It was the stuff of late-night mocking. Then during a primary debate that might have done him in, Rubio turned into a â€œrobotâ€ (thatâ€™s what pundits called him) who repeated a single talking point over and over when attacked by the other candidates.
Now Rachel Maddow says Trump has picked another lawmaker who â€œchokedâ€ under pressure. Before Trump today announced his pick, Maddow was already warning that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence wonâ€™t be able to handle the role of running mate.Â
Pence had his own nationally televised awkward moment, one that lit up Twitter. Pence was being attacked last year for signing a Religious Freedom Restoration Act that activists said was actually a â€œlicense to discriminateâ€ against LGBT people. Businesses were threatening to leave the state as outrage spread. Pence called a news conference, and walked up the podium as 24-hour cable news broadcast live. Then he just stood there, not making a sound, except for some curious deep breathing.Â
Watch how Maddow remembers the moment that Pence â€œchokedâ€ in her segment from earlier this week:
