Establishment Republicans Preparing For PENCE To Become President

1647

Over the past week, President Donald Trump has been involved in a series of scandals, including his firing of FBI Director James Comey, his alleged leak of classified information to Russian officials, and reports that he urged Comey to drop an investigation into a top aide. Now, members of the GOP establishment are reportedly whispering about the possibility of pushing Trump aside so that Mike Pence can be president.

“If what the [New York Times] reported is true, Pence is probably rehearsing,” one House Republican who asked not to be named told Politico. “It’s just like Nixon. From the standpoint that it’s never the underlying issue, it is always the cover-up.”

Some Republicans are reportedly growing weary of defending Trump and believe that Pence looks like a particularly good alternative right now. Erick Erickson, a conservative pundit who was a strong Never Trumper but then pledged to give the president a chance, wrote this week that Republicans should abandon Trump because they “have no need for him with Mike Pence in the wings.”

  1. I am so repulsed by the disgusting viagra and toenail fungus ads thrown in my face when I attempt to read your posts that I almost give up trying! Do you have any control over ads shown or do you know who does? This is pornography! Why is it allowed on FB?

  2. I agree with Sharon Smith and have complained to facebook, the adds turn my stomach, I keep a pad to cover them so I can read the article. I have begged them to fix this with no results. If whoever is in charge consider that the majority of decent people do not want to see these will they please do something.

  3. Pence is a push over . The Democrats’ know they can bully Pence . I do not want Pence for our president . I want Trump . Just try to hold in there Trump they can not impeach without evidence of a crime . I still think this was Obama and Hillary’s back up plan .

  4. YOU ESTABLISHMENT GOP IDIOTS better be VERY CAREFUL what you do or say about WE THE PEOPLE’S POTUS. WE VOTED him in to do JUST WHAT he is DOING. If the GOP or DEMOS do ANYTHING to IMPEACH TRUMP, WE will DEAL with you HARSHLY. LEAVE TRUMP ALONE.
