Pence Goes Into Full Panic When Tucker Hits Him With One Burning J6 Question

Published on

When a former vice president of the United States stands for president, he or she will typically emphasize that position and the administration in which they served.

Mike Pence is vying for the Republican presidential nomination, but he has been careful to distance himself from his erstwhile boss, President Donald Trump. Trump and Pence became polarized on January 6, 2021, when Pence disregarded Trump’s instructions regarding the Capitol events of that day.

Polling indicates that Pence’s distance from Trump has not resonated with GOP voters this year, despite the fact that he typically has a ready response to queries about his stance on this and other issues. Trump and even Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are significantly ahead of Pence in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

Tucker Carlson, a former Fox News anchor, confronted Vice President Pence on Friday with a query regarding the incident at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, and Pence had difficulty responding.

As Carlson has departed the network and ventured out on his own, he is now able to pose even more difficult interview questions to his visitors.

Pence was attending a forum for 2024 GOP presidential candidates hosted by Tucker Carlson in Des Moines, Iowa, dubbed the Family Leadership Summit, when he was asked a direct question about that fateful day that he initially declined to answer explicitly, according to Conservative Brief.

At one point, Carlson gave Pence the opportunity to speak to events on that fateful day that turned Trump, and many of Trump’s supporters, against him with a burning question that has been on the minds of many of the former

“I have to ask you since you were a witness to and in some unintentional way a participant in one of the most widely covered events in American history, Jan. 6: What was that? Do you think that was an insurrection?” Carlson asked.

Pence drew a deep breath and exhaled before thanking the event’s organizers, which was a clear indication that he was stalling.

“Can I just take a moment just to say thank you?” he asked before going on to mention some pro-life protections that were recently signed by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.

But eventually, the former VP did get around to answering Carlson’s question. “Now, as to that day, let me just say: All I know for sure, having lived through it at the Capitol, is that it was a tragic day,” Pence said. He added: “I’ve never used the word ‘insurrection,’ Tucker, over the last two years. But it was a riot that took place at the Capitol that day.”
