Mike Pence never seemed to like Donald Trump, but blind ambition saw him become the former President’s running mate. Their tenure ended with supporters of Trump marking the Capitol halls shouting ‘Hang Mike Pence.”The former Vice President has now decided that the best course forward for him is running for President. He made this decision despite the fact that he is vehemently disliked by the massive Trump faction of the Republican party. And Newsmax host Greg Kelly thinks that Pence running for President would be “disloyal” to Trump.
Kelly told his audience:
“Alright, Vice President Mike Pence, he thinks he can be President of the United States. According to the reporting, he is taking a good hard look at running. He is opened to running in 2024 against Trump.
Now, I think that’s a terrible idea. Number one, he’s not nimble enough, he’s not decisive enough, he’s too wooden, he’s not imaginative. He’s – I just don’t see it happening. And I think it would be incredibly disloyal to Donald Trump. And some of us do feel misled by Mike Pence.”
The host later followed by saying of Pence, “We’ll hear the evidence, but we won’t do anything about it. That’s the problem. Now, under the Electoral Count Act of 1887, a lot of us thought that he had far more discretion — not to overturn the election, and that’s what he says. He puts it, I think falsely. We weren’t actually looking for what he says we were looking for.”
