Makes sense, I wouldn't endorse anyone who wanted to murder me either.

[-] grue 154 points 2 months ago

On the other hand, I am a little surprised that he isn't completely spineless.

[-] cabron_offsets 49 points 2 months ago

Mother probably enforced this.

[-] Daft_ish 27 points 2 months ago

He made a play for ousting trump and it fell flat. There is no recovering for pence. Best to just take his toys and go home.

[-] APassenger 13 points 2 months ago

"take his toys and go ~~home~~" to a well paid think tank (like the Heritage Foundation).

He's still paid for political influence.

[-] MutilationWave 5 points 2 months ago

Does he have any? Does anyone actually like that guy or think he has anything of substance to say? Anyone at all?

[-] takeda 26 points 2 months ago

They rarely make sense though. McConnell for example endorsed him.

[-] Passerby6497 15 points 2 months ago

IDK about you, but I don't think I'd wait close to 4 years to start talking smack about the dude who tried to have me killed.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 months ago

Cruz didn't mind. Most Republicans wouldn't either.

[-] Rapidcreek 140 points 2 months ago

Doesn't change the fact he refused to fully cooperate with investigations of Trump's actions on and before 1/6.

Mike Pence will forever be a coward.

[-] cabron_offsets 55 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

And a traitor. Like nearly all republicans.

[-] [email protected] 132 points 2 months ago

Mike Pence, of "Hang Mike Pence" fame

[-] Ghostalmedia 24 points 2 months ago

Are we sure they didn’t just want to hang with Mike Pence?

[-] ilinamorato 39 points 2 months ago

Nobody wants to hang with Mike Pence.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 2 months ago

Even if they did... Mother wouldn't give them permission.

[-] captainlezbian 5 points 2 months ago

That’s just women and of all the 0 people that want to hang with Mike pence women are especially absent from the list

[-] foggy 15 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

[hans moleman voice] I was saying hang with Mike pence

[-] SuckMyWang 9 points 2 months ago

It was poor grammar. It should have been “Hang, Mike Pence?”

This just in: Victim of leopard mauling says he won't give leopard second helping.

Fuck this guy. I'm not giving him credit for not being a completely horrible person when he has been a horrible person. He hasn't learned anything, made amends, etc. He just doesn't want the person who put hundreds of people on a mission for his head to have total power.

Everyone's (rightly) focusing on 1/6 so I'll go a different route and mention what I think was Pence's biggest moment of public humiliation and utter servility as VP:

Remember back in 2017 when Trump made Mike Pence to go to that Colts v. 49ers game then throw a racist temper tantrum and storm out when players took a knee during the national anthem? Lmao

How'd selling your soul to be Trump's VP work out for ya there Pence-y boy? Really gave your political career a boost, eh?

[-] [email protected] 47 points 2 months ago

Also, for anyone who thinks that maybe it was a spontaneous act, it wasn't. Everyone in the Secret Service and the television network knew what was coming.

[-] [email protected] 43 points 2 months ago

Oh yeah, everyone knew exactly why he was there. It was a thoroughly choreographed racist hissy fit.

[-] Witchfire 23 points 2 months ago

A paid crisis actor if you will

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 months ago

A hissy fit from an unfit hussy? Get me my fainting couch

[-] Evilcoleslaw 17 points 2 months ago

No, that's pretty on-brand for Mike Pence. I don't believe that Trump forced him to do that.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 months ago

I forgot he did this lol

[-] [email protected] 43 points 2 months ago

Imagine if you will you have a direct communication link with God. He tells ya, "You're gonna be the prez of the US, Mikey." And then this orange turd of human being says, "Be my vice prez, and you'll be one heart attack way from the Oval Office." All you have to do is give up the entire moral structure you've based your life around. But God said it would happen, right?

Then the bronze shit stain tries to get you killed because you have one, single, last thread of what you were that even God himself wouldn't ask for you to give up. But still there's that hope. "But God said..." So you hang on while the golden idol's flying monkeys boo you every time you step in front of a crowd. You hang onto hope until finally you realize what you thought was God --in fact-- was your own inner dialog bouncing around the insides of your cavernous skull.

That's why Pence, after it was all said and done, finally won't endorse the antichrist.

I wish that mattered.

[-] HLMenckenFan 26 points 2 months ago

Not surprised in the slightest.

[-] [email protected] 24 points 2 months ago

it's a shame he didn't have this opinion a bit earlier... say... Jan 2021?

it's "nice" that he said that, but.. too little too late dude

[-] [email protected] 22 points 2 months ago

I am. I thought he'd lost his spine again.

$10 says he would have accepted being VP again.

I'm seeing a bunch of people who haven't learned from the last 50 years. He doesn't endorse him now. He will when he's named nominee.

Media: Mr. Pence, will you be endorsing Trump in 2024?

Pence: No. Wait yes... maybe? Wait... yeeee-no. No. Yeah I'm sure. Yes. I mean no. No.

[-] [email protected] 24 points 2 months ago

Pence knew what Trump was planning. He even went to former Vice President Dan Quayle for advice.

All Pence had to do was go on some of the national news shows and personally tell the public that Trump had lost and that Biden would be sworn in not matter what.

It's mildly interesting to consider how many people Trump has near-literally shat on just for them to open their mouths and say yes please after. Why not Pence? This can't be a spine, right?

[-] xantoxis 15 points 2 months ago

At one point he said it wasn't a fair play for Trump to try to have him hung, but then later apologized for saying that

[-] [email protected] 9 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Could be that Pence is one of the people Trump is planning to have his revenge on.

[-] JeeBaiChow 6 points 2 months ago

Maybe mother told him to.

[-] homesweethomeMrL 15 points 2 months ago

I think Mother was done with all of it.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 2 months ago

I almost forgot about Mike Pence. The only thing I remember about him is I thought he was well spoken. I didn't agree with anything he said but I liked his voice for some reason.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 2 months ago

He looks like a used condom

The fly finally got control of the host.

[-] rustyfish 8 points 2 months ago

That’s…surprising? A republican with some sort of a spine. Huh.

[-] geekworking 32 points 2 months ago

It's not spine. It's the MAGA wanting to murder him leopard eating his face.

[-] PP_BOY_ 6 points 2 months ago

There were still plenty of other Republicans in that position on J6 who have come out to support Trump

Wait, wait, wait, there was a spine under that facade after all?

[-] ilinamorato 18 points 2 months ago

The stick was shoved far enough up that it provided some support.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 2 months ago

Every time I see this guy he looks a little.more like cotton hill
