It was reported Thursday that former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is the one helping Vice President Mike Pence through "debate prep" by playing Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"One of the people familiar with Pence’s prep work said several debate-related meetings were slated to be held Thursday," the Washington Post reported.
Walker, who lost his reelection in 2018, has been brought into the Trump fold with an appointment to the Wilson Center board. He won't say whether he's helping with debate prep, but the Post cites two sources who said they couldn't give specifics because they haven't been authorized to yet.
Walker will go up against a law school graduate, former prosecutor, district attorney, attorney general and now-senator who has a knack for taking powerful men down by asking simple questions they struggle to answer.
The idea that Walker could go up against Harris, much less perform as Harris, was the source of much hilarity for those reading the story online.
