Via TTN:

Former Vice President Mike Pence says that he hasn’t spoken with former President Trump since last summer. The once-close Republicans had an infamous falling out over the Jan. 6th Capitol riot.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“You know, we talked last summer,” Pence told Fox’s Jesse Watters on Thursday. “And, you know, I’ve said many times, it was difficult. Jan. 6 was difficult. It was a tragic day in the life of the nation.”

“I know I did my duty under the constitution of the United States,” Pence added. “But the president and I sat down in the days that followed that. We spoke about it, talked through it. We parted amicably.”

Pence has downplayed the broader import of Jan. 6, saying “one tragic day in January” was being used to demean Trump supporters in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. However, he has not expressed regret over upholding the election results that day.

The former vice president’s decision not to overturn the election on Jan. 6 has placed him at odds with some Trump followers, leading the former president to claim that Pence’s relationship with the party was weak.

However, the two Republican coul be talking again soon as both have been floated as possible conteders for the 2024 Republican nomination. Trump has strongly hinted that he plans to launch another presidential campaign and Pence has done the same.

There all traitors, to get what they want
Use your brains for a change people
Most of these politicians don’t give two
Shits what we think. Most vote for what keeps them in office. When they get elected things change from what got them elected. Most of these politicians will stay until they die or get.
Thrown out. It becomes there home away from home. There all kissing cousins believe Me.

Pence was in the end either spineless or a damnable traitor—perhaps a blackmailed traitor?

Well, I used to like Mr. Pence, But I should have listened to my old pal from Indiana who told me that Mike as Governor was no damn good. Because today I’m not so sure old ‘Mr. Constitution’ had no other option than to certify the election. .
