POTUS Pokes Pence: ‘I Hope He Comes Through For Us’ on January 6th


For the MAGA wing of the Republican Party, Wednesday’s importance cannot be overstated.

This is the last stand for Trump and his administration, as the electoral college results are set to be certified by Congress, sealing the outcome of that election politically.

There are several members of Congress who plan to object to the results, which will set up a two hour debate on the floor regarding the election itself.  While there is no guarantee that the outcome will change, the finality of the affair has plenty of folks in Washington on edge.

President Trump, perhaps more than anyone, understands the import of the affair, and he’s publicly hoping that Vice President Mike Pence gets it too.

“I hope that our great Vice President comes through for us,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Georgia for Republicans Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in their runoff election on Tuesday.

Trump referred to Pence’s ceremonial role in the congressional certification of the electoral college vote on January 6th.

“He’s a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him quite as much,” Trump continued lightly, and added, “No, Mike is a great guy.”

Pence faces the awkward task Wednesday of serving as the presiding officer of a joint session of the House and Senate hearing with very little power to stop the process.

The Wednesday event has been largely considered a long-shot approach to reversing the results of the 2020 election, but that hasn’t stopped President Trump from rousing his supporters around the congressional certification process.
