Book says Trump threatened Pence over Jan. 6: 'I don't want to be your friend anymore'

Donald Trump threatened to end his friendship with Mike Pence on Jan. 5 unless the then-vice president refused to certify Joe Biden's 2020 presidential election victory. The incident was revealed in "Peril," a new book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Details of the book were obtained by CNN.

The book "describes the tense encounter in the Oval Office on January 5 when Trump pressured Pence to overturn the results of the election," CNN reported. "While the showdown went on inside, the two men could hear MAGA supporters cheering and chanting outside near Pennsylvania Avenue."

"If these people say you had the power, wouldn't you want to?" Trump asked Pence.

"But wouldn't it be almost cool to have that power?" Trump pressed.

"No," Pence insisted. "I've done everything I could and then some to find a way around this. It's simply not possible."

What friendship?

Drumpf does not have one friend. The mirror is his friend.

That sounds like a conversation between Beaver Cleaver and Larry Mondello.

CNN does not mention the Milley conversation with his Chinese counterpart also detailed in PERIL? They have become so irrelevant to current events that NEWS should no longer be CNN’s mission.

R7, CNN did mention that in one of their articles about the book. They had several today.

"If these people say you had the power, wouldn't you want to?"

We've already seen and heard with our own eyes and ears that Trump blatantly wanted to be an authoritarian ruler. Of course, publicly, it's usually couched in 'humor' as if he's ever had the sense of what comedy is.

He's like that grinning weirdo at a party who says some shit that's totally asshole-ish with no punchline and then always says, "Oh, it's a joke! ... Anyways..."

Trump: "Get it? The punchline is: 'I want to be a dictator!' Now, that's comedy! What a knee-slapper!" ... "But it would be kinda nice, wouldn't it?"

The Orange Menace must be kept very far away from ever getting back into The White House, by ANY means necessary! That even means a bullet right between his beady evil eyes.

I've always despised this fool, I still cannot believe this imbecile was ever president. I keep thinking it was just a bad dream. It's extremely scary that this mental midget was anywhere near the nuclear codes.

by Anonymousreply 31September 15, 2021 4:34 PM

Pence wasn't willing to put his ass on the line to reinstall Trump but I think he supported the election being stolen in another way. He seemed like he had authoritarian tendencies. Remember when he tried to use the bible to justify family separations? I love watching him drive away on 1/20. Good riddance.

by Anonymousreply 32September 15, 2021 4:44 PM

I'm assuming Pence won't be chosen as Trump's running mate in 2024... I do pray that Trump runs, shutting every other potential Republican out...and then he loses miserably

by Anonymousreply 33September 15, 2021 5:05 PM


I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell of Trump choosing Pence as running mate again. He despises Pence and his drive for revenge is pretty overriding. He only needed Pence to win over the bible-thumpers once and he achieved that...

by Anonymousreply 34September 15, 2021 6:16 PM

Hopefully, Dump will be dead by then. Or someone will wave some shiny new object in front of his disgusting face and his revenge run will be nothing but a passing fantasy. It would be great if he can be lured to another country and stays there.

Right now, this imbecile is spending all that money his moronic fanbase keeps sending into his campaign coffers.

Presidents of the United States are not "reinstalled." They are elected, re-elected or defeated. We don't install presidents. This isn't a banana republic...yet.

Pence may have wanted to stay in office, but the rules are so limited after being defeated that there are no options to remain in office.

They never were friends. They come from completely different backgrounds. I doubt if they ever even talked much. Pence just went on automatic spin and licked Trump's ass publicly, then he and Karen despised him privately. All in hopes of one day being POTUS himself.

Now his political future is over. 'Lie down with dogs...'.

The reality of it was so surreal that I can only imagine that the cinematic version would seem more realistic than what actually happened.

They would need CGI animation just to accurately depict the reality of Trump's real appearance. And they would have to hire some extremely hack writers to intentionally write unbelievable dialogue and plotting. The 'Dotard versus Little Rocketman' story arc alone that concluded in "We fell in love!" unfolded like a drunk editor nonsensically stitched together scenes from two different badly written scripts. And it really happened.

The whole thing was like an assault on the senses. In order to be true to reality, it would need to be a work of surrealist art...
