Did anyone really believe Pence would be the one to take him down with the 25th and have a target

on his back alone? Hell no! Of course he is going to hand that off to congress. I actually don't blame him. Trump's supporters are fucking NUTS!

1. not really

I figured if it was going to happen it would have been in the first 24 hours after the attack on the Capitol and only if the attack and threat to his own life made him appropriate levels of furious.

2. I never took it as a given that Pence could whip together half the "primary officers"

Especially once Trump heard that the effort was underway -- he'd start firing the probable yeses and replacing them with blindly loyal "actings"

3. Nope. For two reasons.

1. It was intended for when the President became incapacitated, such as Woodrow Wilson.

2. He probably can't get the support he needs from the Trump "yes men".

4. He could have

said according to legal advice he can't do this and left it there. Instead he accuses dems of playing politics and dividing the nation.

5. Hardly

Trump only kicked Pence in the ass and the gut. His man parts were spared up to now, so it was a safe bet that Pence would be back on his knees before long asking for more.
