In a discussion with Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA this weekend, Vice President Mike Pence expressed his dismay over the partisan impeachment spectacle playing out in Washington. Noting that Democrats have been looking for an excuse to impeach President Trump from the moment he was inaugurated, Pence said that the American people were getting wise to the games being played by the left.
“We saw resistance and obstruction culminating in this partisan impeachment for the last three years,” said Pence. “To be honest with you, Charlie, a lot of it feels just more of the same. For two and a half years, we heard Democrats talk about Russian collusion— until the Mueller report was completed and the Justice Department found no collusion, no obstruction, case closed, and then off we are on the basis of a phone call.”
Pence explained that any American who cared to know the truth about impeachment could quickly figure it out for themselves.
“The American people could read the transcript,” he said. “They could see there was no quid pro quo, the president did nothing wrong. Ukraine received the aid, and all of this just feels to me an un-ending effort by Democrats that literally began on our Inauguration Day to overturn the results of the 2016 election.”
Pence, however, said that he was immensely optimistic about the upcoming election. He said that reasonable voters all over the country could see the difference between today’s Republicans and today’s Democrats, and that he was confident that they would make the right choice.
“I think the American people see through it,” he said. “I think they see a president who’s rebuilt our military, who’s revived the American economy, who’s appointed a record number of conservatives to our courts at every level, who has America standing tall in the world again, respected as never before.
“And then contrast that with a Democratic Party that just seems to be overtaken by left-wing radicals who support not only this partisan impeachment, but late-term abortion, open borders, free health care for illegal immigrants,” continued Pence. “I mean it’s socialist policies that literally impoverished millions over the last century, and robbed the liberties of generations. I mean, to think that Bernie Sanders is leading in the polls in the Democratic Party here in Iowa here today — an avowed socialist — it really tells you all you need to know about today’s Democratic Party.”
It does boggle the mind, but then again, these voters have been inundated with messaging that casts Trump as a would-be dictator in charge of a fascist movement in the United States. It’s a little troubling to think that there are enough dupes in this country that this kind of propaganda could actually take root, but it is what it is. We can only hope that there is still enough common sense and patriotism flowing through the population to combat this onslaught of utter nonsense. If not…we could be in serious trouble.
