An MSNBC host and guest piled on Mike Pence on Tuesday, suggesting that the former vice president was “p—-” for not supporting former President Trump’s indictment.
Host John Heilemann mocked Pence for being boring and dull, suggesting that he had the personality of “the most honest person you knew growing up”. But it was guest and author Kurt Andersen that made things personal.
He described Pence as someone trying to “divide the difference” and said of the former Vice President’s chances of 2024: “This is not a real strip, it’s not just a political stripe for a man who will look like Donald Trump called him a wimp. and a p—-.”

He mocked Pence as robotic. “If AI becomes sensitive, that’s what it is. It splits the gap.”
Heilemann echoed this sentiment, arguing that Pence would be the most boring version of AI. “This is only true if the sensitive AI is given the intelligence and vocabulary of a very, very sheltered, very, very conservative high school student. Like the most honest person you know growing up in Omaha, Nebraska.”

Heilemann’s anger grew after Pence opposed Trump’s indictment on the grounds that it would be “horribly divisive” for the country. But the former vice president has repeatedly criticized Trump’s response to the events of January 6, 2021.
“Every time I see Pence, I think… Donald Trump threw you before the lions,” Heilemann said. “If you and your family had died that day, he would have accepted it, okay.”
In January 2022, Andersen wrote an article for The Atlantic with the provocative headline: “The anti-vaccine right has made human sacrifices to America.”
That same month, he appeared on CNN to compare Republicans who do not support gun control to human sacrifice.
