Donald Trump’s pick for vice president didn’t exactly inspire confidence in everyone. The Republican presidential candidate himself reportedly tried to pull out of his decision to choose Indiana Gov. Mike Pence at the last minute. And after the choice was solidified, most people were left asking the same question: "Who?"

Luckily, Stephen Colbert is here to help us make sense of it all. The Late Show host described Pence as a man who was born when "lightning struck a jar of mayonnaise" while showing a clip of the governor’s speech at the Republican National Convention during his live show on Wednesday night. In his speech, Pence said he plans to balance out Trump’s "large personality, colorful style, and lots of charisma" on the ticket, which Colbert characterized as "Crazy-Boring 2016."

Among Pence’s political accomplishments: Saying in 2001 that smoking doesn’t kill, decrying the secret political agenda of the Disney movie Mulan (to change minds about women in combat, naturally), and signing Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allows businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ patrons.

One might ask, "Who really cares about the vice president? They don't get much real political power or say in policy." But that is where Trump is reportedly going to change things, which is exactly why you should care. According to a report from the New York Times on Wednesday, Trump's camp originally tried to recruit Gov. John Kasich of Ohio for the VP position by telling him he would be the "most powerful vice president in history." So if Trump is elected, Pence might end up being one of the most powerful men in the world.

When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?

“Making America great again” was the casual reply.

Sounds like a guy you should familiarize yourself with immediately. Thank you, Colbert!
