**Turncoat Mike Pence appears at Iowa’s “Roast and Ride” event in a questionable attempt to appeal to conservatives, but his past actions continue to haunt him.**
In a display that raised eyebrows, former Vice President Mike Pence attended Senator Joni Ernst’s annual “Roast and Ride” gathering in Iowa recently. Ernst, a controversial figure who has consistently sided with Mitch McConnell, received support from former President Trump during her campaign, but now seems unlikely to reciprocate that support.
Pence’s appearance at the event was almost comical, as he arrived on a motorcycle wearing a tough-guy leather jacket adorned with patches. Conservatives remembering Pence’s betrayal of their trust, however, found it hard to be amused. Journalist Dave Weigel captured the scene in a series of photos that serve as a stark reminder of Pence’s disloyalty to Republican voters and the GOP.
As many recall, Pence famously went back on his word during the 2020 election, when he failed to support efforts to send election results back to the swing states for recertification. This decision ultimately led to the tumultuous events that followed and left conservatives questioning Pence’s allegiance to the Republican cause.
The incident in Los Angeles, captured by Twitter user NATLY DENISE(@NatlyDenise_) on June 3, 2023, serves as another reminder of the chaos and division that has ensued since Pence’s controversial actions during the contested election.
**Although Mike Pence’s Iowa appearance may have been an attempt to win back the favor of conservative voters, his betrayals are not easily forgotten. His presence at the “Roast and Ride” event only further highlights his disingenuous efforts to appeal to a demographic he once turned his back on.**
