Trump Urges Mike Pence To “Come Through For Us” When Congress Certifies Election Or He “Won’t Like Him Quite As Much”

Sounds to me like he just threatened Pence with a good time.

There’s just no denying that Donald Trump has exhausted every option in the book in an effort to overturn the rightful results of the 2020 presidential election and steal the United States presidency from the true winner of the race, Joe Biden. In the weeks and months since the November election, we’ve had the displeasure of witnessing everything from ridiculous recounts that have only served to find even more votes for his Democratic opponent, to baseless lawsuits that have blown up in his face and been laughed out of court over and over again. The fact of the matter is, the guy lost, big time, and his time in the position of power offered by the United States presidency is coming to a rapid close.

So, now he’s pulling out the desperate guns.

Based on everything he’s tried and failed to pull off up until this point, you would think that Donald’s desperation was already at its peak, wouldn’t you? But, as he usually does, Trump proved to us that there truly is no low he won’t stoop to during the rally he held in Dalton, Georgia last night, in a connection to the state’s runoff senatorial races that will determine the overall fate and control of the American Senate.


During the event, Trump all but demanded that his vice president Mike Pence “come through for us” as the VP is set to certify the results of the Electoral College vote on the 6th of January.

“I hope Mike Pence comes through for us. He’s a great guy,” Trump told the audience. “Of course if he doesn’t come through I won’t like him quite as much.”

Joe Biden won the Electoral College 306 to 232. Multiple GOP Senators and a few Republican members of the House have already announced their intention to challenge the College’s vote, which could ultimately stretch the confirmation, and Congress’ session, for hours or even days. In the end, Mike Pence will only be there to serve as the announcer of the final results — Though it appears, like many other things pertaining to the US government, Donald Trump doesn’t actually have a single clue as to how that all works.

The New York Times recently reported that Trump has been putting pressure on his vice president to find a way around certifying the results, such as tossing it to the House of Representatives.

During the rally, Donald unsurprisingly doubled and tripled down on his assertion that he did not actually lose the election, it was just rigged against him, saying, “Hello Georgia. By the way, there’s no way we lost Georgia. That was a rigged election. But we’re still fighting it. And you’ll see what’s going to happen. We’ll talk about it.”

He later added, “I’m going to be here in a year and a half and I’m going to be campaigning against your governor and your crazy secretary of state, I guarantee you.”
