“And I think the future is bright because I think we have to tell the story of our last four years, Smug, and not be complacent,” Pence joked to Ruthless co-host Comfortably Smug. “We also need to formulate a positive conservative agenda that will draw the American people toward us, that would show how we would govern differently and based on how we governed differently during our administration and face the challenges of the future.”
Tensions between Trump and Pence seemed high when the Vice President certified President Biden’s election victory, marking the 45th birthday.

However, the former vice president spoke highly of Trump while pondering fond memories he had with the president and recalling a catwalk drama he witnessed landing at LaGuardia airport during the 2016 election.
“When everyone was secured, everyone was gone, I got in the car and drove downtown and got a call as soon as I got into the car. And I got on the phone and he said, ‘Hey Mike’ “This is Donald. All right? You okay?” And I said, “Yeah. No, we’re fine. It was just a bumpy little ride at the end, but we’re fine.” And he said – he said, ‘Oh, that’s great. Because getting a new vice president would be really tough, ‘”Pence said, triggering a laugh from the Ruthless co-moderators.” And I said,’ Well, thank you for your concern. I appreciate very much.’ That was a moment of his humor that I’ve gotten pretty used to over the years. “

“At 62, I can honestly tell you that the last 20 years of our lives have been a privilege. Whatever the future holds, we’ll just take it as a prayer, we’ll examine our hearts, but I love this country.” … This is the greatest nation in the world, and I think it fell to us as Conservatives and Republicans to defend and promote the freedom that has made this nation the greatest nation the world has ever known, “added Pence.
