Appearing on MSNBC's "The Sunday Show" the former counsel to House GOP members expressed her disgust with former vice president Mike Pence for not declaring all-out war on Donald Trump for almost getting him killed on Jan 6th.

Reacting to a report that Trump challenged Pence in a phone call to either be a "p*ssy or a patriot" and keep him in office, attorney Sophia Nelson called out the former vice president who has an eye on running for president.

After host Jonathan Capehart showed her the clip from ABC News, Nelson said of Trump, "We know he likes the 'p' word, he's said it before. So, having been said, I'm not surprised at all. And I just think that we're in a sunken, dark place and we're getting lower and lower."

"Mike Pence is trying to walk this line where he is trying to not to be at war with Trump instead of manning up and calling him out and totally and resoundingly rejecting him and his vile language and his rejecting the Constitution being subverted. But I don't see that happening," she exclaimed. "I'm not surprised by this. Donald Trump is a sociopath, he is not a well person. No, I'm not a therapist, but I have some common sense and I can see and it's all about him and if it's not about him, then he does what he does. He turns on everybody and anybody, that's just who he is."
