Giving Pence credit for not attempting insurrection is like praising a dog for not biting.
i don't think it's quite that glib an answer....Pence is guilty...but not nearly as guilty as trump. he stood up to a lot of pressure to buckle and do what he was told...and stayed true to whatever principles he held. they might not have been your prinbciples, but they were his, and he didn't abandon them in the face of intense pressure to do so. i think he deserves a small amount of credit for that, he had at least a small amount of integrity in an administration built on quicksand

And you have to have a few adults in the room with Trump to try and limit the damage.

Have you ever heard Pence say he did the right thing? I haven't. All I've heard is him say is he could not do what Trump and his minions told him to do. He was stopped by others.

You are praising a slavering vicious but leashed and muzzled dog for not biting you.

Trump Should Cough Up His $570,000 Debt To El Paso Before He Tours Border: Judge Says stop being a cheap fuck

When Donald Trump arrives in Texas for an appearance with GOP Gov. Greg Abbott to tour the state’s border, he should bring a check to pay off his campaign’s nearly $570,000 debtto the city of El Paso, a local judge said.

“We have been trying to reach out to get the $570,000 from when he had his campaign” rally two years ago, El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego told local NBC affiliate KTSM-9 TV earlier this week.

If Abbott “helps us collect” the money Trump owes, “that would be real nice,” Samaniego added. (Check out his remarks in the video above.)

Trump racked up the hefty bill for his “Make America Great Again” rally on Feb. 11, 2019, at El Paso County Coliseum. Local authorities provided security, transportation, emergency and traffic services, and the bill was due in April that year.


The Trump campaign hasn’t yet paid a dime. It owes the El Paso police department more than $381,000 alone. Michael Glassner, the CEO of Trump’s campaign, told ABC two years ago: “We are reviewing” the bill.

“It shows a lack of concern for the community and the tax-paying voters of El Paso,” city Rep. Alexsandra Annello told the El Paso Times as Trump let the debt twist in the wind. Trump has “put a financial burden on this community , that fat cheapfuck” she complained.

perhaps you're right...maybe its just the contrast, anyone next to trump looks sane and trustworthy, in comparison

DeSantis tops Trump in 2024 presidential straw poll
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) ran narrowly ahead of former President Trump in a straw poll of potential 2024 candidates in a survey conducted over the weekend at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.

Of attendees who responded to the survey, 74.12 percent said they would approve of DeSantis for president in three years, compared with 71.43 percent who said the same of Trump. DeSantis won 275 votes, while Trump got 265.

The duo had wide leads over the rest of the sprawling field, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) coming in third at 42.86 percent approval.

If Donald perceives him as a threat for control of his base of suckers, he will go after him bigly, he won't be able to shove his head up his ass far enough. Trump is looking at up coming NY indictments over the summer and will need all the political power he can muster. DeSantis had better wait until he's down for the count, before he jumps in the ring to cut Donald's throat. While Trump is on trial and during his sentencing in NY, the republican party will become an even crazier place, as Donald's fear and desperation grow. Just wait until Donald is indicted and on trial, if you wanna see the depths of depravity and desperation.
