I’m going to go ahead and say it, I’m pretty certain that former Vice President Mike Pence is going to be running for president in 2024.
He sure has been in the media a lot lately and I think that this is not only an effort on his part to stay relevant going in the next election cycle, but also an effort by the mainstream media to prime him for the position.
I think that Democrats know that they don’t have a shot at winning another election with someone like Joe Biden, nor do they want him for another four years, if a Republican is going to win it, they want a “decent” Republican to win it, someone who isn’t a “MAGA Republican”.
This week is nothing new. Mike Pence took time this week to bash President Trump for having dinner with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes last week.
“President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table, and I think he should apologize for it and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric without qualification,” Pence said.
Pence was careful to not cast the former president as a racist or an anti-Semite, and noted that he would not have served under him if he believed he was either of those things.
“People often forget that the president’s daughter converted to Judaism, his son-in-law is a devout Jew, his grandchildren are Jewish,” said Pence. “The broad brush of attack that the media leveled at him… I think the president demonstrated profoundly poor judgement in giving those individuals a seat at the table. He should apologize for it and denounce them without qualification.”
Former VP Mike Pence says Donald Trump should apologize for dining with a Holocaust-denying white nationalist, but said he doesn’t believe the former president is antisemitic. Watch the full interview on NewsNation tonight at 7p/6C. Find us on TV: https://t.co/TkQWhMl5oB pic.twitter.com/KEFBO8qa0j
