Dan Quayle May Have Saved Democracy

From Charlie Sykes and “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa:

Mike Pence was even more of a windsock than we thought:

The book also reveals how Vice President Mike Pence struggled more than was publicly known over how to navigate Mr. Trump’s demands that he upend the election certification. Speaking privately to former Vice President Dan Quayle, who oversaw the certification of the 1992 election in which he was on the losing ticket, Mr. Pence appeared open to going along with Mr. Trump’s plan, pushed the false claim that Arizona’s voting results were wrong and asked whether there was any way he could delay certification.

In the days leading up to Jan. 6, Mr. Pence called Mr. Quayle, the only living Republican vice president forced to certify an election in which he was on the losing ticket.

Mr. Pence told him that the president was convinced that Mr. Pence could throw out the election results in order to keep himself in power.

“Mike, you have no flexibility on this,” Mr. Quayle told Mr. Pence. “None. Zero. Forget it. Put it away.”

  1. Mr. Trump is a very sick man. I pity him. I believe in God and this man is going to burn in hell. Hopefully before he and his supporters destroy our democracy.

  2. Pence is a weak hypocritical Christian. Dan Quayle shouldn’t have had to tell him a thing. Pence knew better..for god’s sake, the rioters wanted to kill him as well!
