Mike Pence didn’t just abandon his one-time supporters within the MAGA movement on January 6th, when he turned on Trump and voted against him he doubled down on that effort this week during a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday. It’s never been more evident that he’s for the establishment and his own political aspirations, rather than putting America First.
Pence reintroduced himself as perhaps the country’s biggest RINO. As such, he’s never been more disapproved of and seems to have switched his campaigning to the ‘Never Trump’ crowd, creating political suicide for himself.
When speaking to a crowd at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Thursday when he said he was proud of his role on January 6.”
“I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution and the laws of the United States,” he said.
And while he did not mention Trump by name he took a pointed jab at the 45th President of the United States.
“The truth is, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president,” he said.
Pence, who is suspected of a potential run for president in 2024, expressed his disappointment with the results of the election but did not dispute their veracity. He’s certainly not winning any votes among his base with this assertion.
“Now, I understand the disappointment many feel about the last election,” Pence said. “I can relate. I was on the ballot. But you know, there’s more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment. If we lose faith in the Constitution, we won’t just lose elections – we’ll lose our country.’”
