Donald Trump is down at what he likes to call his winter White House, aka Mar-a-Lago. But where is Mike Pence? After all, the vice president has an important job to do on January 6. That is the day that he sits at the head of the Senate and pronounces President-elect Joe Biden the winner of all that Trump has lost. Pence knows that everything is over, and his distancing is a feeble attempt to clear his own name after four exciting years riding along on the president’s tornado of chaos as it tore through the nation. Shame on Mike.
Yet, he has started trying to escape the stench of Trumpism. As the latest Lincoln Project ad says, he knows that it is all over. Right now, he is in Vail Colorado at a ski lodge, nowhere near the president. Treasuring Secretary Steve Mnuchin went even further after Trump cut off his negotiating legs. He is at a resort in another country, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Pence cast his adoring eyes on the president as if the Donald was his abusive father and he had Stockholm Syndrome. The Trump realm has begun crashing down around the two men and all their silent choir of Republican senators and representatives. The president is pleased that he has managed to create such terrible chaos for four years, leaving a stunned nation and 334,000+ dead Americans in their cold dark graves.
His work here is done. Is Pence done, too? The Lincoln Project thinks so. Take a look at their latest video, one certain to get under Trump’s skin.
