Here's the Incriminating Case Against Mike Pence

Mike Pence, the estranged, one-term Trump vice president who is widely expected to announce a 2024 presidential run against his former boss, showed up at the NRA’s convention in Indianapolis, Indiana – his home state – to deliver a speech Friday afternoon.

It didn’t go well.

Pence, the Republican former Indiana governor and U.S. Congressman, was loudly booed.

Despite the less-than-welcoming welcome, Pence told the audience, “I love you too.”

To be fair, he did get applause, which apparently was not captured by the C-SPAN microphones.

Pence is no stranger to being booed.

In fact, he’s been booed at at least four other events, two of them also in his home state of Indiana. That should come as no surprise. In 2016, before Donald Trump chose him to be his vice presidential running mate, Governor Pence’s approval was “underwater” and he was seen as “unpopular” – so much so he could have lost his re-election bid.

In 2016, while still governor of Indiana, Pence was booed at a baseball game for signing a highly-restrictive abortion bill.

Here he is, also in 2016, getting booed by the audience at Broadway’s “Hamilton.” He later received a respectful plea from the cast:

The following year, now officially vice president, Pence was again booed, again in his home state of Indiana, as graduating students literally walked out in protest while he delivered the commencement address at Notre Dame University.

In 2021 at the Faith & Freedom conference, which should be considered his base, Pence was booed and called a “traitor.”
