Mike Pence refutes Trump on Jan. 6, urges GOP voters to pick different candidate in 2024

Story by Candy Woodall, USA TODAY • 7 January 2024

Former Vice President Mike Pence, who said his life was threatened during the violent U.S. Capitol attack three years ago, is refuting the unsubstantiated claims of former President Donald Trump and encouraging Republicans to choose another candidate in 2024.

Pence, once fiercely loyal to his old boss, dismantled Trump's recent description in Iowa that Jan. 6, 2021, was "peaceful" and the work of "patriots." Trump also describes more than 1,000 people, who were convicted in connection with crimes on Jan. 6, as political "hostages." And the former president has made unsubstantiated claims that the Jan. 6 attack was the work of the FBI.

Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence speaks during the Seacoast Media Group and USA TODAY Network 2024 Republican Presidential Candidate Town Hall Forum held in the historic Exeter Town Hall in Exeter, New Hampshire. The former Vice President of the United States and former Governor of Indiana spoke to prospective New Hampshire voters about issues during the hour-long forum.

"The truth is that this was a riot that should never have happened," Pence said Sunday morning during an interview on CNN's State of the Union.

He also emphasized what he has said before − Trump's words were reckless on Jan. 6 and Pence did his duty in certifying the will of voters who elected President Joe Biden in 2020. Pence, who was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, said he saw people breaking windows, ransacking the Capitol.

"It just infuriated me," Pence said. "I remember thinking, you know, 'Not this, not here, not at the United States Capitol.'"

He thanked the FBI for bringing criminals to justice and countered Trump's false claims. "I've heard the many repeated assurances from the FBI that they were not involved and I take them at their word," Pence said.

Though Pence said voters are more likely to make decisions in 2024 based on the last year, and not three years ago, he hopes Republican voters get behind a different candidate than Trump.

Pence said the upcoming Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary are a chance for "good Republican voters" to "give our party a fresh start and give us new leadership to lead our party forward in the election and beyond."

You did your duty, Mike? You ought to tell about how you and your family were threatened that "you had better real ALL of the results of the Electoral College."

In the election of 1800 Jefferson was elected after 35 ballots were taken in the House and on the 36th vote Jefferson won after Hamilton convinced several representatives to switch to Jefferson.

That was clever Ghost.

his·tri·on·ic /ÌhistrÈänik/ - noun, plural noun: histrionics

1. exaggerated dramatic behavior designed to attract attention.
"discussions around the issue have been based as much in histrionics as in history"

2. ARCHAIC - dramatic performance; theater.
"he loved the theater and everything which savored of histrionics"

Also see: Histrionic personality disorder. Also called: HPD.

A mental health condition that affects the way a person thinks, perceives, and relates to others. Genes play a role in the development of personality disorders. Abuse or instability during childhood also may increase risk. A person with histrionic personality disorder seeks attention, talks dramatically with strong opinions, is easily influenced, has rapidly changing emotions, and thinks relationships are closer than they are. Treatments typically include talk therapy.

Characteristics What are histrionic traits?

Persistent attention seeking, dramatic behavior, rapidly shifting and shallow emotions, sexually provocative behavior, undetailed style of speech, and a tendency to consider relationships more intimate than they actually are.

The vowel you are looking for is "A". That's not exactly a secret inside the Beltway. As a matter of fact, it's pretty well known. I think the content of the article bears that out pretty well.

It seems that Wikipedia omitted the details about Pence being a compromised homosexual.

That seems odd.

The Wikimedia Foundation runs Wikipedia. But we do not know who Wikimedia really is now, do we? ;)

It's all very clear to me now. Suffice it to say that the people running the MSM, Big Tech and the government don't have the best interests of the US in mind.

I don't understand it anymore than I understand Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) or the need of some people to kill a large percentage of the population to "save the planet."

I've seen a lot of the World, it's a really big fucking place. I'd be happy just being left alone on my little 3/8ths of an acre, and be happy leaving everybody else alone in return.

But no, there's always got to be those one-in-a-million motherfuckers like Bill Gates, George Soros, et al, that have to fuck things up for the sake of fucking things up.

I've seen a lot of the World, it's a really big fucking place. I don't like it. I just want to be left alone.

Nah, I just thought you knew Pence was a homo. I thought your post was great. Dr. Kimmy gave me some advice about the psych shit about Pence though.

What is my karma? I just thought Odin hated me or was afraid I'd take control of Valhalla or something. I'm way past my expiration date.

It is, has been since the Kenyan. It's just out in the open now. Openly praised, in fact.

The very first thing Trump did in the Oval Office was to reverse ALL of Obama's unlawful Executive Orders. ;)
