Former Vice President Mike Pence is no longer mincing words about his former boss and is calling Donald Trump “reckless” and someone who “endangered [his] family.” Pence was talking to ABC’s David Muir about the events of January 6, 2021. He said, “it doesn’t take courage to break the law. It takes courage to uphold the law. I mean, the president’s words were reckless. It’s clear he decided to be part of the problem.” Pence will no doubt be treated like a hero in some circles for coming out and saying this but he doesn’t deserve any credit. Mike could have spoken up about Trump immediately after the Capitol insurrection when his opinion would have carried some weight. Instead, Pence waited until now, when Trump is at his weakest following so many Republican losses in the 2022 midterms. If anything, this interview reveals that Mike Pence is more of an opportunist than a courageous man taking on the head of his own party.
