OK, so Pence turned out to be the lowlife everybody knew he was. Surprise!
Pence, unsatisfied and reluctant to honor his commitments, kept pushing, exploring ways to help Trump remain in power, despite having lost the election. Quayle found the ideas “preposterous and dangerous,” according to the Woodward/Costa book. Pence nevertheless inquired about whether he could perhaps delay the election certification.
“Forget it,” Quayle told him, adding, “Mike, don’t even talk about it.”
Wow, imagine what kind of a wretched miscreant you are if Quayle finds your ideas “preposterous”.
Pence reportedly replied, “You don’t know the position I’m in.”
Oh, I bet he knew exactly, Mike, because:
“I don’t want to be your friend anymore if you don’t do this,” Trump reportedly replied, apparently referring to his coup scheme. He later told Pence, “You’ve betrayed us. I made you. You were nothing.”
