About one minute after the vice president was hustled out of the Senate chamber and into a nearby room, members of the pro-Trump mob arrived at the top of a nearby landing.

  • Scottie, five people already died, but if Trump’s terrorists took out Pence, that would be the ultimate betrayal of someone who was loyal to a fault to this corrupt and deceitful president. I was watching former Senator Jeff Flake today on The View. He said he was on the baseball field when a terrorist shot Rep. Steve Scalise and others. Flake said Pence called him to see if he and others were OK when he got in his car. Scroll forward, the current president never called Pence after siccing his attack dogs on him. That speaks volumes of the sociopathic bent of Donald J. Trump. Keith

    • Hello Keith. I am really not sure what tRump thought he would accomplish. I know that tRump doesn’t know or understand the very government he leads. His plan as has been reported and supported by his actions was for the terrorists to take out Pence, Pelosi, Schumer, and Harris. Then tRump planned to declare marital law then to send in the National Guard to quell the riots. In his mind it makes him the hero. OK but how does that keep him as president? That is the part I do not understand? On the 20th Biden still would be president, if not Pelosi would. So really what was the game? I do love now he is saying he doesn’t trust Pence to pardon him. Honor among thieves?
      Hugs

    • Hello Cagjr. I found the article informative in that Pence argued with the Secret Service about how to keep him safe. But I guess we know why Pence was so angry with tRump, if not for his own life but also tRump endangered Pence’s daughter. If I had been Pence it would have taken a lot of Secret Service to keep me from making that point to tRump himself. Hugs

    Shakespeare showed the mind of the tyrant pretty clearly. The mind of the sycophants may be just as complicated. Maybe political aspirations numb the mind to reality. There is no one he will not discard as soon as they are no longer useful or give the slightest hint of disloyalty. Yet people line up to go through his credibility grinder while they see others ruined.

    Now he cannot find a lawyer willing to defend him. Tyrannies always end in disaster.
