Pro-Trump Kid Confronts MSNBC Anchor For Saying He ‘Challenged’ Mike Pence (Mediaite)

In what will probably be the only instance of the words “at a Mike Pence rally” ever appearing in a national news story, 11 year-old Matthew Schricker propelled himself into the political news bloodstream this week when he asked a precocious-sounding question at a Pence event in  in Raleigh, N.C. In a rare instance in which Indiana Governor and potential Republican Vice President Mike Pence wasn’t being upstaged by Donald Trump, the kid upstaged him by asking if his role in a Trump administration will be to keep “softening” Trump’s comments and policies.

On Friday morning, Schricker appeared on MSNBC to explain that he wasn’t trying to challenge or “bait” Governor Pence, and got a little bit confrontational with anchor Chris Jansing for suggesting he had.
