Devout #NeverTrumper Erick Erickson has called for Trump’s resignation due to his “failure to lead.”
“President Trump needs an intervention. Without that, we need his resignation,” he wrote “Republicans who are [reflexively] defending the self-inflicted wounds of this President have no need for him with Mike Pence in the wings.”
It is clear that while the left hates Pence, they would much prefer him to Trump and likely see him as a far less threatening foe, and they are helping to advance the President pence narrative.
“After the inevitable impeachment of Donald Trump will come President Mike Pence – and it won’t be so bad,” writesThe Independent. “Pence, by contrast to Trump, is cautious, conservative and conventional – and plainly ‘one of us’ to the Republican elite.”
“Don’t fear President Pence, liberals. Welcome him,” writes the New Republic. “Some on the left say the vice president would do more damage than Trump. But a post-impeachment Republican Party would erupt in civil war.”
Even the Daily Caller is gently floating the idea that we’ll be “just fine” if Trump is removed and replaced by Pence.
“Republicans in Washington must respond to Trump’s scandals with deliberate, measured caution,” writes David Benkof. “But it can’t hurt to know that if our president does have to go, we’ll be just fine.”
News broke yesterday that Pence had quietly set up a new political action committee of his own – an abnormal move for a vice president, which the media heralded as a maneuver by the vice president to re-position himself ‘as the White House stumbles,’ according to Bloomberg.
If there was ever a time for Trump supporters to dig in their heels and back the man they elected to lead the United States of America – not Mike Pence – that time is now.
