Mike Pence 'Grinning' After His Plane Skidded Off Runway

I've been in a car accident before, it wasn't life threatening and no one died... but I wasn't grinning.

If I had been in a plane accident I'm pretty sure I would not be grinning, unless something happened in my dream after I FAINTED.

Science says that planes fly because everyone onboard believes that they do (like fairies), so I want to know who on this plane, which was transporting Governor Mike Pence of Indiana, stopped believing?!

The plane, which held the Republican vice-presidential nominee onboard, skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport on Thursday. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Pence went to check on the media after the event.

Hmm...

His "grinning" makes it sound like Pence low-key tried to perform the landing himself and then was like, "Hehe, sorry about that guys! Just goofin'!"

The plane apparently landed hard before skidding off the runway.

Tim Alberta, the chief political correspondent for National Review, was on the plane.

He insists that the experience wasn't what it looked like on TV. The plane landed hard and skidded, everyone onboard laughed, and then they were met with sirens.

According to a press pool report,

Mr. Trump called him from the car. He reached out to Governor Pence and he is very glad everyone aboard is safe.

There were 37 people onboard the Boeing 737.

Hmm.. there were heavy rains while the plane tried to land in New York? The state where Hillary Clinton was a former senator?

This sounds like two people I know may have been in cahoots, not to harm anyone, but maybe just to give them a little fright.

Jokes aside, we're extremely happy that everyone onboard is safe and sounds.

Officials from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which manages LaGuardia, said that the aircraft stopped skidding onto the highway by the airport thanks to crushed concrete at the end of the runway.
