Mike Pence joined a debate he should have left alone by criticizing a speech President Joe Biden made recently in which he criticized the extreme views of the MAGA Republicans who continue to remain loyal to Donald Trump and make excuses for his every illegal action.
In case you missed it, here’s what Biden said:
Pence, who is clearly trying to mend fences with the far right wing of his party that still worships Trump, took to Twitter and began slamming Biden for daring to speak the truth:
“Did you see that speech last week? President Biden held a partisan campaign rally at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, flanked by uniformed United States Marines, and revealed what’s truly at stake in the next election.”
“Never before in the history of our nation has a President stood before the American people and accused millions of his own countrymen of being a ‘threat to this country.’ To top it off, President Biden had the audacity to claim, ‘I’m asking our nation to come together, to unite.’”
Those are bold (and incredibly stupid) words coming from a man that Trump suggested might should have been hanged on January 6 to placate the rioting thugs who attacked the U.S. Capitol. As House Select Committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney noted at a hearing in June:
But now Pence wants to take umbrage with Biden for calling it like he sees it and making it clear to American voters what’s at stake when they go to cast their ballots in November?
The former VP’s postings raised eyebrows and ire on social media.
