I really don't think Pence wrote the op-ed. Not his style, But it would be doubly funny if he did, because there's not a damned thing Trump could do about it, except freeze him out of the White House.
Pence could just retire to the Naval Observatory and work on his memoirs; or his plans for 2020. He really oughta just say "I am Spartacus!," especially if he isn't. It would improve his standing and burnish his reputation*, and cost him nothing. Trump's gonna take him down the way Clinton took down Gore anyway; he might as well get something for his time.

*no, not by much, but every little bit, amirite?
