‘The View’ host says she ‘feels sorry’ for the vice president
“The View” co-host Joy Behar said she feels sorry for Vice President Mike Pence and his role in certifying the results of the 2020 election.
Behar joined co-host Whoopi Goldberg in discussing if President Donald Trump’s base was likely to stand with Trump or follow other Republicans.
“Trump’s the only one,” Behar said.
“He has like a negative evil charisma.”
Behar argued that other Republicans didn’t have quite the same effect because they were all “boring.”
“Mike Pence is boring, let’s face it,” Behar stated.
“And I feel sorry for Mike,” she added.
“He’s like all these other politicians. If you kiss his butt, Trump’s butt, he gives you a medal,” she said.
“You know what I mean. If you don’t kiss his butt, you’re toast.”
“Poor Pence is in the position of being toast.”
“He has to pull that thing out of the envelope and say, and the baby daddy is … That’s what I’m waiting for.”
Meghan McCain also weighed in asking whether or not a “medal” from Trump would really hold any meaning.
“There’s going to be a younger, newer coalition,” McCain said.
“I think Josh Hawley is 40. These are young new blood coming up.”
“We’ll see if Trump means anything anymore,” McCain explained.
“I believe when Trump is a regular senior citizen which is what he has been, but he has power, he will lose his mojo,” Behar replied.
Earlier this week, Pence announced was supporting the move by a group of Republican senators to challenge the Electoral College certification of the presidential election results.
The vice president issued a statement vowing to throw his full support behind the effort.
Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short declared in the statement that “Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election.”
“The Vice President welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on January 6th,” Short added, according to The Hill.
