REPORT: Trump is "embarrassed" the Pences brought pets to Washington D.C.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A new profile of Vice President Mike Pence says his boss is not a fan of his pets. 

An advisor to Pence told The Atlantic that President Trump was overheard saying he was "embarrassed" that the Pence family brought their pets to Washington D.C. 

The Pence family brought two cats, a snake and a rabbit named "Marlon Bundo" from Indiana to the Vice President's Naval Observatory residence in D.C.
