Michael Pence Alienates Half the GOP Voters in a Speech at the Gridiron

“President Trump was wrong,” Mike Pence said at the Gridiron Dinner. “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence criticized Donald Trump for his handling of the January 6 Capitol riot in remarks at the annual Gridiron Dinner Saturday night.

“Make no mistake about it, what happened that day was a disgrace,” Pence said during his speech, according to the Associated Press (AP). “And it mocks decency to portray it any other way.”

The former vice president is said to be laying the groundwork for a 2024 campaign. He has an odd way of showing it. In February, Mr. Pence said he was nearing a decision on whether he would run for president.

“I read that some of those classified documents they found at Mar-a-Lago were actually stuck in the president’s Bible,” Pence joked. “Which proves he had absolutely no idea they were there.”

No cameras at the Gridiron but Kaitlan Collins had the story.

If he’s laying the groundwork for a presidential run, it’s a bad approach. He alienates half or more of the Republican Party and expects to win? He’s probably not running expecting to win. Instead, he might want to hurt Donald Trump. He’s another John Bolton. Just a guess.

The truth is Pence was never in danger, and the riot should never have happened. It is unacceptable that officers were hurt, although we don’t know the extent of the injuries. We do know NO officers died.

Last Monday, Tucker aired clips never seen before and included commentary that enraged Democrats and some Republicans – the usual suspects. Whether Tucker went too far in his commentary is for people to decide after they watch the videos.

But Pence cheered them on!

Pence cheered on a crowd two days before the election, telling them “we’ve all got our doubts.”

“President Trump was wrong,” Mike Pence said at the Gridiron Dinner. “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know history will hold Donald Trump accountable.”

That day never came:

For a different insight on J6 you should read the Conservative Tree House article entitled “The Parliamentary Motive Behind the J6 Fedsurrection. It appeared March 12, 2023.

He thinks the left leaning bedwetters will like him now. Shows you how dumb Pence is. The left will never like him and now the right thinks he’s an ignoramus.

Judas Pence is only Christian when it’s convenient.

What is actually a ‘disgrace’ is that Pence hid the fact he used his campaign donations for credit card expenses, student loans, and leisure activities. His reasoning is that he “has to make a living too”. Pence is nothing more than small potatoes, a vicious jealous man who has accomplished nothing in his wide-azz life.

I believe under the 12th amendment Pence could have delayed the opening of the envelopes having the electors. The VP is the ONLY one who could open the envelopes. All Pence could have said was “Under the powers invested by me by the constitution. I will not open these envelopes until we have a fair audit in 6 swing states…NOT a recount,,but a full audit”..I believe that would have been fair and equitable…Could have taken a month at most. Pence instead tried to hang Trump out to dry. LEGALLY SPEAKING…Can anyone prove me wrong???
