Confess to what, exactly? Is Mike Pompeo part of the conspiracy now, too? Damn. Who is left in the GOP that isn’t?
Also, how does outgoing Secretary of State Pompeo fit into this scenario? If Pence can’t read the numbers in a wooden box on Jan. 6, that honor falls to the President pro tempore of the Senate, Iowa’s Chuck Grassley. If Wood is talking about the presidential line of succession, then, even assuming he gets his death wish for Pence, that still doesn’t add up: Nancy Pelosi ascends before Chuck Grassley, who is ahead of Pompeo.
Perhaps Wood thinks Pence will be soon joining Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brian Raffensberger in prison. They are in prison already, right? They aren’t? On Dec. 15, Wood declared that it was inevitable, which was amplified by the Donald himself.
As of this writing, Trump is yet to retweet Lin’s plan to get rid of Mike Pence.
Just one day in 2021, and Wood managed to threaten the veep, opine that Chief Justice John Roberts was the one behind Antonin Scalia’s death, and declare that Jeffrey Epstein is still secretly alive. Meanwhile, right-wing outlets are still pretending he’s sound of mind.
Pence, meanwhile, is clearly frightened by these antics. He tried to skip town after he presides over Trump’s final defeat on Jan. 6, but his trip was cancelled—perhaps by Donald Trump himself. The former Indiana governor is hated by everyone now, and Wood’s tweet is tame compared to what you see on Parler, indicating that Pence’s life may be in real danger with the QAnon crowd. His wife—aka Mother— has been miserable ever since he became vice president, and must really be cranking up the heat on him now.
I don’t pity the Pences at all. Mike knew who he was getting in bed with. He could have, for once, taken his oath of office seriously and stood up to the outgoing president on this feeble attempt to overthrow democracy. Instead, Pence chose to “humor” him. Now, normal Americans hate him, and Trumpists, including the Orange One himself, REALLY hate him. Trump’s devotees falsely believe that Pence has a magical power to declare Trump president for life by fiat, but simply refuses to do it. His “betrayal” will mean that he will spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulder for one of Trump’s unstable followers. Pence threw away everything he had—his reputation, his odds in future elections, his chance at a comfortable life—for the very people he now fears. Screw him.
Even Trump attorney Jenna Ellis slowly backed away from this latest hot mess, even if Trump hasn’t. The ousted Twitter addict is still mulling martial law, and whether he should appoint yet another loyal conspiracy theorist, Sydney Powell, as special counsel … to investigate the totally non-insane charge that zombie Hugo Chavez conspired with Republicans and Democrats to steal the election from Trump. Trump, of course, is facing a slew of lawsuits upon leaving office, ranging from blatant financial corruption to sexual assaults, and is growing increasingly desperate to stay in power.
Fortunately for us, the people who are left fighting for him are the worst of the worst—the sludge at the bottom of the barrel. It would be funny if it wasn’t so damn tragic … and dangerous. Never again, America.
