Is Mike Pence right about how history will remember Trump?

On Saturday Mike Pence said - history will hold Donald Trump accountable for his role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. I think he is right but I also think Pence will not be looked at too favorably in the history books because after the riot he said next to nothing to condemn the riot. I also hope the history books include a real un flattering photo of Trump. Cheers!

Fuck history. He needs to be held responsible in our lifetime.

@Northwest If the system wasnt bent into a complete pretzel his "Career" never would have got off the ground floor..😷
Mike refused to testify against the man who set him up to be hung outside the Capital Building. Mike is such a weak man he can't be alone with any Woman other than his Wife, "Mother" Mike spent 4 years trying not to say anything for fear he might say something that contradicts the worst President in US history.

A politician being held accountable sets a bad precedent.. Besides, theere is plenty of financial crimes to do him for..😷

I’ll translate GOP code to English: what he means is don’t hold Trump accountable for his crimes, history will remember Trump for what he truly is, long after we are all dead.
Much via tapes is coming out about the 6 Jan incident, not an insurrection. That said, Pence performed his duties. But the possibility of an incident was well known before it took place. Anyone going to say Pence didn’t know this ?
I don’t always lambaste my government but in this case there were too many things (IMO) that failed or were let to fail to create a narrative, ergo the 6 Jan committee, a farce if there ever was one.
And there are those incarcerated not charged, a true violation of individual’s rights under our Constitution and these insidious attempts to circumvent the Constitution by a sitting President and administration are tyranny and sow the seeds of rebellion. And God help us if this continues; 6 Jan will look like a picnic on a summer day compared to what may come.

I think history books will get it right, but does that really hold the man accountable? I extremely strongly doubt it...

Maybe hold his legacy or lack there of, accountable... but I don't care about that... I think he'll die before the man is ever held accountable for anything.

I doubt anyone will remember Pence not condemning the riot; history may remember that he was the VP though.
@originnone History may also remember that some of the protesters wanted to kill Pence simply for acknowledging that Trump really did [b]lose[/b].

@bijouxbroussard What's disturbing is I know some really smart people who actually believe Trump won....not just fringe loons....
@originnone Yes, but I don’t see how they can justify that belief. It’s pure delusion.

Considering how most people on here keep talking about him uhh yeah 😂🤣
@Nolovehere Trump remains in the public eye—he’s even announced plans to run for president again. So it’s not like he’s gone away so we can forget him.
Nolovehere · 31-35, M
@bijouxbroussard regardless I wish he would go away..
@Nolovehere You are [b]not[/b] alone in that regard. But I suspect it will take either prison or perdition before that happens. 🙄

Pence sounds like a girl who regretted sleeping with the dude the night before. Lol

History, perhaps, but not the United States.

I thought Trump has been to court for it
eli1601 · 70-79, M
I guess he decided NOT to run for President
Zonuss · 41-45, M
He is correct.
It's hard to take Pence seriously, just a moment ago he was still defending Trump and acting like all of this had been no big deal (even though the insurrection mob wanted to HANG him, no one could get him to commit to truly condemn everything surrounding that day) ... now when it suits him, he changes his tune (kinda like Lindsey Graham)
LordShadowfire · 46-50, M
Oh, he's absolutely correct. And to those people complaining that Mike didn't show this kind of backbone while he was vice president, keep in mind Trump is exactly the type of person who would have demanded his resignation, and then threatened him with the (in)Justice Department had he refused.
LvChris · 41-45, M
What he is saying, i think, is that history will do it.... because the current GOP sure as hell isn't going to.

@BohemianBoo I prefer to think he went along with it because Trump would have demanded his resignation if he hadn't. Not saying that makes him a good guy, just a guy with no choices.
BohemianBoo · 18-21, M
@LordShadowfire If that was the case, then he should have done the right thing and resigned. Authoritarian movements are full of people "just following orders."
