Shameless Pence Pursues Presidential Possibility

Pence has no pride.

Despite Trump's relentless attacks against him, Pence is still pledging total fealty in a bid to run for the presidency in 2024.

He doesn't talk about when Trump's supporters marauded through the Capitol on Jan.6, threatening to hang him. Or, that they even built a scaffold outside in anticipation of lynching him.

He didn't blink an eye when Trump scolded him for not blocking Congress's recognition of Biden's victory. 

He pretends to ignore Trump supporters who are still mad it him for not lying and subverting the electoral process.

Since the election Pence has holed up in North Virginia, sealing a book deal and writing an occasional op-ed for the Daily Signal, a publication run by the extremist Heritage Foundation.

Last week Pence carefully orchestrated a reemergence onto the public stage - meeting with evangelic pastors and top donors to lay the groundwork for a potential 2024 bid.

The challenge for Pence is those loyal Trump supporters who are livid with him for recognizing Biden's win despite Trump's urging not to.

Thus far all of Pence's speaking engagements have banned the mainstream media from attending.

But he can't ignore the reality of his total sell-out to Trump, the most unpopular president the nation has ever had.

As time goes on tough questions will dog Pence and he'll find himself trying to defend his pride and manhood.

The fact is there's no good reason for selling one's soul.
