Vice President Pence looks a lot like President Pence in these White House videos out of Asia, comforting victims, meeting world leaders, and even reviewing troops.
I don’t remember Vice President Biden ever getting such prominent treatment from White House videographers. Pence also often plays a big role in White stuill photos, sometimes dominating the shots posted on Flickr.
I’m not saying there’s anything nefarious going on, although I’d be surprised if there isn’t a conscious effort by the vice president’s team to promote him. Why wouldn’t they?
And I guess it’s a credit to Trump that he shares the spotlight. White House photographers were obsessively focused on Barack Obama, but there is a far greater diversity of photos and videos produced by the Trump White House.
Then again, Trump is not well-known for sharing the spotlight, so one wonders if he is aware that he is doing it.
