This is either hilarious cowardice OR TRAGIC DEATH OF DEMOCRACY.
NEW: Iowa Sen. Charles E. Grassley, the Senate president pro tempore, says he and not Vice President Mike Pence will preside over the certification of Electoral College votes, since "we don't expect him to be there."
"And I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you. I hope that our great Vice President comes through for us, he's a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him quite as much…"
In the history of this great nation, have we ever seen or witnessed such an unAmerican and feckless administration such as this one? Every day many of us go to work and do things that we don’t want to do, but have to because it is our job…our duty! These folks are ridiculous! https://t.co/pNPml3u9NT
A Grassley spokesman clarifies that the senator does not "have any indication Pence won't be present." Grassley, he said, was just trying to explain that at president pro tempore of the Senate, he would fill the chair if Pence does not show or steps out at points for a break https://t.co/iS8Wb7Yfpy
I don’t know. It depends on what happens in Georgia. If the Dems win that and control Congress that is really going to piss off the Republicans even more, because Trump won’t have the ability to pull strings in Congress to stop legislation. Biden will have his work cut out for him.
