Former Vice President Mike Pence was booed during Friday’s interview with Tucker Carlson when asked about Ukraine and events surrounding Jan 6.
Tucker confronted Pence about sending more money to Ukraine as the country continues its war with Russia.
Carlson challenged Pence, asserting:
“I would think you would have greater concern for religious liberty in Ukraine…you can’t arrest clergy for having different views, period, because if you do, you violate the basic tenet of [liberty].”
Pence fired back, saying, “I want to be clear with you I won’t stand by it. I won’t stand for it if people are being persecuted for their religious beliefs.”
When Pence responded to Tucker saying he believed the US should continue sending more money to Ukraine, the audience booed.
The conversation transitions about the events of Jan 6 and the result of the 2020 election.
“Why doesn’t anybody try to reassure the public that the mechanics of voting are legit?” To which Pence replied, “There were irregularities in the 2020 election. There’s no question. There are about half a dozen states that changed the rules of elections in the name of COVID.”
Pence then defended his decision to certify the 2020 electoral results, calling Trump’s actions on the day of the Capitol riot as “reckless” and stating, “It endangered me and my family and everyone that was at the Capitol that day.”
Pence then voiced his approval of recent election integrity reforms in Republican-led states, along with support for photo ID requirements for voting.
When Carlson suggested the outright removal of electronic voting machines, Pence responded with his openness to the idea, saying, “I would certainly be open to that.”
