That cover was blown up into an eight-foot-high poster and displayed in Congress by Gingrich's angry opponents, in what was easily one of the most interesting events of the 1990s that didn't involve O.J. Simpson, Iraq, or Bill Clinton's wang.
Why He Might Be A Good Idea:
Newt actually seems to agree with the basic ideas behind the Black Lives Matter movement, and has said as much. Considering Trump's minority bonafides basically boil down to "Doesn't currently support putting Muslims in internment camps," Gingrich would actually count as as a progressive choice.
Claim To Fame:
Mike Pence is the governor of Indiana. He's almost run for president several times, and he has fantastic hair.
His Last Job:
Pence is still the governor of Indiana. But, uh, probably not for that much longer. His approval rating currently hovers around 40 percent, and he's got to decide whether or not to run for reelection by Friday.
What Trump Has To Gain From Him:
You'd think at least the state of Indiana, but Trump is already projected to win that state, and most people in Indiana apparently hate Pence. He's a dyed-in-the-wool religious conservative, with a fine record of saying unfortunate things about gay people ("Homosexuality is incompatible with military service because the presence of homosexuals in the ranks weakens unit cohesion.") So Trump might conceivably want his support to buck up the right-wing religious demographic, even though they're already planning to vote for Donald Trump over a woman they view as the Antichrist.
