Mike Pence Reached His Limit with Donald Trump, it Wasn’t Pretty

The pressure was on Vice President Mike Pence at this point. There he was being cursed by the president after three years and eleven months of navigating the perilous seas of President Donald Trump’s ego.

After all the tongue-biting, pride-swallowing moments where he used strategic quiet or florid flattery to stay in his boss’ good graces.

Mike Pence Reached His Limit with Donald Trump, it Wasn’t Pretty

Trump was furious that Pence was not attempting to void the election. The president had repeatedly pressed him in meetings, alternately browbeating and cajoling him.

Last Wednesday, just before Pence left for the Capitol to supervise the electoral vote tally, Trump called the vice president’s home one final time.

According to two persons briefed on the call, Trump told him, “You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a p***y.”

The Loyal Lieutenant Finally Came to a Decision

The devoted lieutenant, who had largely avoided deviating from the president and had fine-tuned every other potential split, eventually reached a decision he was powerless to prevent.

Despite the president and despite the mob, he would uphold the election. And he would pay the price with the political support he had earlier sought to mobilise for a presidential candidacy of his own.

According to John Yoo, a legal expert who was contacted by Mr. Pence’s administration, “Pence had to choose between his constitutional responsibility and his political destiny, and he did the right thing.”

For both Democrats and Republicans, he was, in my opinion, the man of the moment in many ways.

He performed his duty despite the fact that, at the time, he must have realised that doing so likely meant he would never be elected president.
