Pence is frantically running away from Trump on Ukraine: ‘Everyone is trying to get off the Titanic’

Published

Vice President Mike Pence is “trying to save himself” in the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s administration illegally soliciting foreign assistance in the 2020 election, an MSNBC analyst explained on Saturday.

“I want to take a look at another character in this Ukraine controversy, and that being the vice president. NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard repeatedly pressed Pence on whether he knew about a link between the interest in investigating the Bidens and then that aid being held up for Ukraine,” MSNBC anchor Alex Witt said.

The clip showed Pence repeatedly dodging the question.

For analysis, Witt interviewed MSNBC commentator Alaina Beverly.

“Everyone’s trying to get off of the Titanic,” Beverly said. “That’s what I make of this.”

“If he answers the question and says that he knows and is aware of all of the details that were in that conversation between Trump and the president of the Ukraine, then he becomes a conspirator in this larger enterprise,” she explained. “So, I think Vice President Pence is trying to save himself, and that’s not unusual given the dominos that we’re seeing and the evidence that is mounting up against Donald Trump.”

They were "openly siding [with] white supremacy and causing a civil war," which he said he thought was "far worse than anything Trump could do."

Trump’s dangerous mental condition grows worse as America faces devastating crises: Yale psychiatrist

Published

on

A nation most afflicted with a mental health problem is the least likely to address it.  I am speaking of the mental health, or lack thereof, of the president.  His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
