UPDATE: The plot could not be thicker here people.
Reporter on Fox says VP was “about to land in NH” and was “turned around.” A guest on MSNBC says the plane was turned around in midair. But a senior WH official told the press pool that “The VP had not left DC and he’s currently at the White House.” https://t.co/vInf9QOK7E
