Mike Pence tweets that he wants a horse “inside” him and all of Twitter freaks out

This is a thing that actually happened.

On Friday afternoon, the current Vice President of the United States of America tweeted a picture of himself standing beside a white horse, along with a head-scratching caption:

Pence was taking a horseback tour of the Absaloka Mine near Hardin, Montana along with the Crow Nation tribal leaders, Montana Senator Steve Daines, and Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke.

The internet shared a collective “WTF” moment as they tried to make sense of the tweet, particularly of Pence’s use of a Ronald Reagan quote very few people remember and that some say might actually be from Winston Churchill.

Then, of course, there was the beastialic undertones of the whole tweet, which are ironic coming from a homophobe who once served on the board of an antigay group that compared homosexuality to beastiality and incest, among other things.

Naturally, the rest of Twitter had a field day over the V.P.’s post. Check out what they’ve been saying…
