Former Vice President Mike Pence was very loyal to Donald Trump, there’s no question about that.
But since the Jan. 6 protest, the day he refused to count contested electoral ballots back to states for evaluation and a second look prior to certification, he has repeatedly claimed he did the right thing.
Maybe so, maybe not.
But in recent days, he’s added a new twist to his self-congratulatory ways: Blaming Trump’s supporters for being “un-American” in their belief that he did not utilize his constitutional role as president of the Senate to its fullest capacity when he had a chance to save his own reelection from being stolen.

Whether former President Donald J. Trump decides to mount another White House run in 2024 remains to be seen. However, his former vice president may soon see any of his own hopes of sitting in the Oval Office go up in smoke. Although, he himself ignited the dumpster fire.
Mike Pence joined Democrats in accusing supporters of the ex-POTUS of being 'un-American' for skepticism about whether Joe Biden's election 'win' was legitimate. Trump himself has repeatedly expressed this doubt.
According to Pence, 'January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol, but thanks to the swift action of Capitol Police and law enforcement, the violence was quelled, the Capitol secured, and we reconvened the Congress the very same day to finish the work of counting Electoral Votes from every state in the union.'
Pence continued, 'No there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session, that I possessed the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states, but the Constitution provided the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress'
'But the truth is, there's almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American President. The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone.' He said this while refusing to acknowledge what appeared to be a brazen theft of an election on a level with a third world country. An idea that many hold and will continue to hold until audits of the ballots have been conducted such as the one in Arizona's Maricopa County.
Pence added, 'I understand the disappointment many feel about the last election, I can relate. I was on the ballot. But you know, there's more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment.' This is the strongest indication yet that Pence supports the coming war on 'domestic terrorism' that will cleanse the establishment of Trump and all of those who support him.
If Pence wants to further his political career and make a run for the White House, it won’t be as a Republican. He’s done in that party.
