Skip to comments.Mike Pence destroys his remaining goodwill among MAGA Republicans: It’s hard to say if Pence a useful idiot for the Democrats or if he was an establishment Republican pretending to be a MAGA Republican

As Vice-President, Mike Pence was reviled by the DC Democrat establishment and their PR wing that masquerades as the news media.
Pence is religious, conservative, and pro-life, he also believes in marital fidelity and traditions. He seems to stand for everything that liberals abhor.
They disparaged Pence as anachronistic and misogynistic because he revealed that never dines alone with a woman other than his wife and neither does he attend any event where alcohol is served unless his wife is present.
When Pence was lectured by the sanctimonious cast member of Hamilton the media applauded it.
They mocked Pence each time he led prayers in the White House alongside Trump.
When a fly landed on Pence’s forehead during the 2020 vice-presidential debate, Pence was compared with excrement.
The attacks received by Pence paled in comparison to the Trump Derangement Syndrome that plagued all liberals not just in the US but beyond. It would be fair to say that Pence was attacked by the media the same way Romney and McCain were during their respective Presidential runs. It wasn’t personal or destructive as it was against Trump.
But since leaving office Pence has been the recipient of favorable treatment by the media.

Also last year the NYT claimed that “We Should Thank Mike Pence for His Courage on Jan. 6”
The Atlantic Magazine claimed that Congress should honor Mike Pence and name any D.C. building in Pence’s honor.
Esquire magazine too seemed to join the Pence fan club.
A CNN contributor who was caught in an act of self-gratification on a Zoom call crossed further limits of decorum by comparing Pence to Harrison Ford i.e. implying that Pence is a solitary force of bravery and morality.
I never thought of Mike Pence as a Harrison Ford type, but he sure sounded like one in the description of the hearing today. #January6thHearings — Jeffrey Toobin (@JeffreyToobin) June 16, 2022
‘Republican’ Liz Cheney branded Pence a hero, and so did Democrat Jamie Raskin.
Obviously, because he is pushing the January 6th 'deadly insurrection' narrative and blaming President Trump for it.
It must be remembered that as Vice President, Pence wasn’t actually averse to the swamp.
It was Mike Pence as Vice President who complained about of Trump’s first National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lying to him about his contacts with the Russians which led to Flynn’s firing. Flynn was among those who had pledged to drain the swamp, so with Flynn gone weeks after Trump was inaugurated the possibility of reforming national security agencies reduced.
Pence was in charge of the COVID-19 response that allowed Fauci and others to hijack the proceedings.
Even after leaving office, Pence’s conduct was suspicious.
Weeks after the news of the discovery of classified documents at Joe Biden’s offices and homes caused headlines, Pence’s lawyer discovered a dozen documents marked as classified at Pence’s Indiana residence. Pence’s lawyer volunteered this information to the appropriate agencies and the news appeared in the media. Was this a move by Pence to make Biden’s mishandling of documents seem like business as usual? One could wonder why Pence’s lawyers did not undertake a similar search for classified documents at Pence’s home when Trump’s home was raided.
So, what has Pence been up recently?
Last Saturday, Pence attended the annual Gridiron Club dinner, which is an event of, by, and for the D.C. Establishment, where he said the following
“History will hold Donald Trump accountable for Jan. 6.
Pence may run as an Independent. He’s a traitor.
He was a pantywaist anyway.
Look up milquetoast and there’s probably a picture of him.
Many vice-presidents have been forgotten. Pence pretty much already is.
Trump was just telling us that Pence is an honorable man. Trump knows Pence better than any of us do - I’ll take him at his word and will assume that Pence is an honorable but very misguided man. A dunce.
He’s in good company with the many establishment Bushite neocon GOPers here on FR. Funny thing is, I can remember when many of these neocon FReepers actually flirted with that MAGA fad.
No it isn’t hard to say. Bush was to Reagan, as Pence was to Trump. Put there to undermine and watch.
When the pussygate tape came out, he schemed with Ryan and Priebus to replace Trump at the top of the ticket. His first act was to lie about Flynn and conspire with Sally Yates to get him out at NSC leader.
During Mueller he was silent. His intent was to remain silent and see Trump gone in a month or two and then take office himself. He did nothing to get the wall built, or repeal Obamacare.
He let Fauci run wild. He was with Milley during the Black riots. He was silent as a stone during the fake impeachment. He is always hiding behind his wife’s skirt and his pious Christian act. His final act was to support the 2020 coup.
He is GOPe, a simpleton, trash, and a backstabber.
Never trust a man who pretends to be perfect. With Pence it’s a well designed facade to cover up the rotten core. I didn’t trust him from day 1.
He had remaining goodwill?
Pence would be wise to run for the US Senate from Indiana in 2024. He has zero chance to be elected President.
Pence is an establishment Republican who pretended to be MAGA. He isn’t really interested in Making America Great Again.
Et tu, Mikey?
I don’t think I would vote for him after the nonsense of the last few years from him. He isn’t trustworthy.
when did he ever pretend to be MAGA? I was surprised when Trump picked him ...
Leading up to the 2020 election there were snippets of him being MAGA. It was all a show.
Pence was a very good Governor of Indiana - he started the idea to lure Illinois Businesses into Indiana - he was very successful at bringing manufacturing plants to Indiana
Indiana had a surplus in the Treasury when he was Governor and continues to have low taxes.
Too bad he caught Swamp Fever when he got to DC.
That and VP were his pinnacle, he is not even close to being presidential material.
“It was Mike Pence as Vice President who complained about of Trump’s first National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lying to him about his contacts with the Russians which led to Flynn’s firing.
Worse than that. Obama put sanctions on Russia in his last 6 weeks in retaliation for “Russia stealing 2016 for Trump”. The Russian Ambassador asked Flynn about that. Flynn said “I cannot discuss that, it will have to be a topic some other day”. The FBI and everybody knew because they were spying on Flynn already.
Pence asked Flynn and Flynn told him no, sanctions were NOT discussed.
But fake Christian “straight arrow” Pence said telling the ambassador “I cannot discuss sanctions”, is in itself, discussing sanctions. So he ran straight to Meet the Press and started saying Flynn had lied to him.
Why was Flynn exploring that in the first place? He was not the president, but there he was already running policy before being sworn in?
How did Pence know to ask about sanctions at all? It was Comey and the FBI spying on Flynn, and through Yates feeding it to Pence.
He is a Judas and always was.
UGH! Too soon to see a picture of that white haired traitorous turd...I just ate.
Deep State is scared to hell.
