    I'm starting to wonder if Trump thinks that if he can force a government shutdown, and keep it shutdown, then Biden will never become president? He's not that stupid, right?

    He is, but I don't really think that is a goal of his.

    I got my laughing out of my system before typing. Indeed, Pence has no chance, because Trump is quite the piece of #2.

    Even if that was the idea, and no it isn't Trump would never find a loophole nobody else ever found, but even if it was, we'd still be far more likely to see President Pelosi.

    And I'd be okay with that.

    Considering he thinks that Pence can stop the transition to Biden on January 6th, yes, he really is that stupid.

    I mean, forget the ball dropping on Dec 31, I want to see the tweets dropping on Jan 6. Trump has repeatedly yelled at people for doing the only possible option.

    Oh, plus Trump can't fire Pence and Pence is due to flee the country.

    It's going to be amazing.

    I've requested to open on the 5th, and burn a vacation day for the 6th. Get up early and see the shitstorm starting.

    Pence may wonder if his immunity as VP is a curse or a blessing. he cannot be fired but it is his duty to "backstab" his master (and himself).

    still a chance of him resigning early january, so the wrath will be aimed at somebody else ? or will he hold out for the slim chance he is needed as President for 1 day for a pardon to Trump ?

    If Pence confirms Biden as president that will be hung around his neck in perpetuity by the republican base, and his negligible but non-zero chance of becoming their nominee in future years will fall to absolute zero.

    He knows this of course which is why its so absolutely hilarious.

    He's got no choice but to ruin his own ambitions.

    Someone needs to ask him if he will be Trump’s VP on January 21st... maybe ask him if he plans to attend Biden’s inauguration or Trump’s inauguration misinformation clan rally.

    He recently was spouting the same Trump BS about excluding illegal votes... after the EC voted. Here’s him on Dec 22nd at a TPUSA event.

    And as our election contest continues, I’ll make you a promise. We’re going to keep fighting until every legal vote is counted. We’re going to keep fighting until every illegal vote is thrown out. we’re going to win Georgia, we’re going to save America and we’ll never stop fighting to make America great again. You watch.

    He knows his entire political future has been tied to Trump since he signed up to be VP for this shitshow. Hopping off now would destroy any chance of a deep 2024 run which could lead to a cabinet position. Even playing up this shit won't really help him in 2024 since Trump's base wants a circus, but he's hoping enough evangelicals go for him that Cruz may try to buy him off so he concedes early.

    If he feels it is anything other than his Constitutionally mandatory duty to do it, he shouldn't do it.

    We're about to find where his principles lie.

    Pence was a Republican first, but over time became the only one left in Team Trump. I don't think he's drunk the Kool-Aid...but he might be really parched after a four-year party.

    That's not the reason he's doing it. He's doing it because he wants to run as president in 2024 and he needs the support of the Trump cult for that.

    Basically he is a giant raging hypocrite who goes against his own teachings for personal gain. Yep, he is a Christian alright....
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    What if pence goes to the floor, reads the votes, and then just... declares trump the victor?

    It will have no legal weight or authority of course, Biden will still be president, but... pence will have made the democrats angry and refused to declare Biden the victor, which is exactly what trumps cultists want.

    And we all know all the GOP will do is roll their eyes. He might even get applause from some of them trying to suck up to trumps base.

    What’s to stop pence from doing that? Even If it’s a federal crime... Trump can just pardon him.

    That's a terrible idea. Pence is not Trump. Cults don't have vice-dictators. If he tries that, he'll get primaried.
