If Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, is the stabilizing factor in Trump’s 1-legged campaign, then removing Pence from the equation should eventually result in a loud thud as Trump’s campaign crushes to the ground.
That is the hope of some Republican officials in the wake of Trump’s confession that he happily committed sexual assault on unsuspecting women.
Donald Trump could be left without a running mate as GOP officials may consider pressuring Mike Pence to quit the race after he publicly stated that he could not ‘condone’ the billionaire’s crude hot mic comments.
A few GOP leaders may be considering a scenario in which they would convince Pence to leave the ticket, according to CNN.
Former Jeb Bush supporter, Vin Weber told the network that he would ‘absolutely’ call for Pence to leave the ticket as a way to put ‘immeasurable pressure’ on Trump to leave the race.
‘Pence is the anchor that keeps Trump in the race,’ so without him it would be over for the candidate, Weber said.
Pence’s advocacy for Trump came to a screeching, perhaps temporary, halt Saturday in the hours after Trump released a video apologizing for 2005 remarks in which he describes his aggressive conduct toward women.
The Indiana governor was said to be ‘beside himself’ over Trump’s comments.
Pence said in a statement about Trump: ‘I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them. I am grateful that he has expressed remorse and apologized to the American people.
