Former Vice-President Mike Pence appeared on Fox News on Monday night and wasted no time to show that he is willing to say almost anything to get back in Donald Trump’s good graces.
“Look, you can’t spend almost five years in a political fox hole without somebody without developing a strong relationship,” Pence told host Sean Hannity after being asked about his relationship with the 45th president –particularly in light of his refusal to overturn the 2020 election as Trump had suggested on January 6.
“January 6 was a tragic day in the history of our Capitol building,” Pence admitted before trying to swipe the incident under the rug.
“But thanks to the efforts of Capitol Hill police, federal officials, the Capitol was secured. We finished our work. And the president and I sat down a few days later and talked through all of it.
“I can tell you that we parted amicably at the end of the administration, and we’ve talked a number of times since we both left office.
“But — but I believe that our entire focus today should be on the future. I’ve campaigned a couple of times for Glenn Youngkin who will be a great governor in the state of Virginia. I’ve been traveling all across this country helping our team running for the House and the Senate, and I’ll be helping governor’s candidates around America.
“So I know — I know the media wants to distract from the Biden administration’s failed agenda by focusing on one day in January. They want to use that one day to try and demean the — the character and intentions of 74 million Americans who believe we could be strong again and prosperous again and supported our administration in 2016 and 2020.”
Just wow. Mike Pence wants you to believe that that the media keeps talking about “one day in January” Because they want to distract from the struggles of President Joe Biden And they want to “demean” the character of the people who voted for Trump.
It’s clear that Pence has no sense of self-respect. What is doing here is both shameful and gross: He desperately wants to run for president in 2024 and knows he can’t do that as long as he is persona non grata in Trumpworld. So, despite the fact that he didn’t overturn the election results as the president wanted, Pence is now trying to find common cause with the very same people who chanted “Hang Mike Pence” as they rioted through the Capitol.
Maybe Pence thought the insurrectionists he's defending were yelling "hang WITH Mike Pence?" pic.twitter.com/V0NR7HspKU
