Is Mike Pence being set up as the fall guy?

Iíve long been interested in theories that Dump will dump Pence in favor of someone like Nikki Haley. A few questions:

Would Haley, or anyone else who fancies a future in national politics hitch their wagon to Trump after what is playing out like his Katrina?


Would Dump be at risk of alienating evangelical voters by dumping Pence?


I think the selection of Pence was done to insulate Trump as much as possible from whatever fallout comes, and because his handlers know heís just terrible at crisis management. The optics have been grim. But conveniently the choice also serves as a ready made justification for dropping Pence should things continue to progress with the virus.

1. I don't think he's thought that far ahead. He just doesn't want to take responsibility

3. Yes, that assumes way too much forethought

 

That said, he always has someone set up to take the fall for every failure. As soon as he says something good about him, the axe is about to fall

5. Trump needs a VP who will pardon him.

 

I don't think he trusts Pence to do that. Pence may act like he thinks trump has a delicious ass, but I'm not buying this obvious obsequiousness.

9. From the first day Pence was put out front on Covid-19.

 

The plan has always been to use Pence's predictable failure as an excuse to throw him under the bus.
