“You can either go down in history as a patriot, or you can go down in history as a pussy.”
Donald J. Trump to Mike Pence
Of course, Trump was asking Pence to effectively steal the election by refusing to allow the counting of electoral college votes which had been certified in six states that Trump lost. Trump was delusional in thinking that the Constitution gives the Vice-President sole authority to reject duly certified electoral college votes.
Oddly, Trump was correct in making this statement. Pence will go down in history as a patriot for this act in following the Constitution and resisting pressure from a President who was hell bent on the treasonous act of stealing an election. And Pence would have been a total “pussy” if he had kowtowed to Trump’s demand. Red has no love lost for Groveling Mike and his sycophantic act over the last four years, but he did show some spine when he was asked and refused to betray everything this country stands for.
