Former vice president Mike Pence was asked at a symposium of sorts if he would vote for his former boss and our former president in 2024. Not surprisingly, though forever disappointedly, Pence revealed he wanted someone else on the ticket. After everything Donald Trump did – not least of all elevating this establishment loser to the second-highest office in the country -this is how he returns the favor.
Former Vice Pres. Mike Pence had this to say when asked if he would vote for Donald Trump in 2024, if his former boss is the Republican presidential nominee: “There might be somebody else I’d prefer more.”

The person off camera begins by asking: “If Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for president in 2024, will you vote for him?”
After that, there is a pause as Pence both smirks and the anti-MAGA, presumably Never-Trump audience laughs. Finally, Pence broke the silence.
“Well, there might be somebody else I prefer more,” he says to a room of clapping seals, before continuing:

“You know, what I can tell you is I have every confidence that the Republican Party is going to sort out leadership. All my focus has been on the midterm elections and it will stay that way for the next twenty days. But, after that we’ll be thinking about the future. Ours, and the nations, and I’ll keep you posted. Okay?”
I have commended Pence in the past. He unfairly received a huge amount of flak for his position on not dining alone with other women. I don’t question is Christian ethics and believe he is an honorable private citizen. I have always said the world would be a better place with more people like him than not.
But as a political figure, he is at best misguided and at worst controlled. For all his stated beliefs, how is it possible that he views Trump as the enemy and sees the D.C. Swamp as full of heroes? It is as upside-down as possible. Donald Trump didn’t drain or shrink the swamp, to be clear, and it is my hope whoever runs in 2024 will be much more prepared to battle with our elitist ruling class and dismantle the levers of power used against freedom-loving individuals. Perhaps Trump better understands what he;s up against.
One thing is for certain, though: Mike Pence is not interested in giving up the unconstitutional and immoral power in our federal district. He loves it. For that, he needs to disappear from the public sphere and just retire to his home.
One of the top comments on Twitter suggested that Pence is still considering running and would want to choose the worst possible running mate possible. Take a look below:
So Mike Pence is definitely going to run for President in 2024 and I 1000000% believe he will pick Liz Cheney as his running mate.
It’s hard to tell if this comment is serious, satirical, hopeful, or disparaging. I imagine there are a few people, such as those filling this room in the video, that want to see another RINO sellout run for office. These people love second place and being losers. As bad as Pence is, can you imagine Liz Cheney running for office? She’d be the first person to ever receive negative votes. If she runs as a Democrat, sure, but the ego on her to run as a conservative – which I don’t rule out – must be second to none.
That being said, I absolutely want Cheney to run as a Republican. There is nothing that gets me more excited than watching her standing next to Donald Trump on a debate stage and getting absolutely demolished by the former president. If he was mean to Rosie O’Donnell and other Republican candidates in 2016, we can’t even fathom how ruthless he would be toward her.
Please make it happen. Please run, Liz.
As far as the rest of the comments, it was interesting to read through them because a clear plurality of them were angry at Pence for not speaking up more against Donald Trump. That’s correct; they aren’t angry he’s clearly distanced himself from his former boss (as seen in both speeches like this and his establishment endorsements against Trump’s MAGA endorsements in congressional and gubernatorial races).
Instead, most comments were upset he didn’t distance himself enough. Whether bots or TDA-afflicted users, they all said the same thing: Trump tried to kill you and you haven’t denounced him.
Never forget that, no matter how tough Mike Pence tries to talk about taking Women’s bodily autonomy, his boss tried to kill him and he STILL won’t speak out against him. He’s a worthless coward,” said one of the worst accounts on the platform, BrooklynDad_Defiant!.
“Dude – your own party tried to hang you. But do go on about how yer all “pro-life” won’t you,” said another top bot account from Jo.
Lying bigot Mike Pence makes my skin crawl. I’ll never understand how he’s okay with his former boss trying to have him assassinated,” said another one.
