‘First indication publishing door is opening’: Mike Pence signs $3 million book deal

Former Vice President Mike Pence is parlaying his time in the White House into a $3 million dollar book deal with a major publisher.

The move is being called by some “the first indication that publishing’s door is opening to Team Trump” since Donald Trump, and many of his supporters and allies, were hit with severe censorship after Jan. 6, the Washington Examiner reported.

Defying cancel culture trend

Trump is still barred from most social media, most notably Twitter, his weapon of choice in the media wars, and Big Tech has grown continually draconian since a riot at the Capitol that sealed Trump’s status as persona non grata to much of the American political and cultural establishment.

But Pence, who has been generally keeping a low profile, is poking his head out some more, announcing a book deal earlier this April with Simon & Schuster.

The news is hailed by some Trump aides as an optimistic sign, the Examiner reported, noting that Simon & Schuster is hyping Pence’s tome as a glimpse at “one of the most consequential presidencies in American history.”

To be sure, though, some are skeptical. Marji Ross, formerly of conservative Regnery Publishing, the firm that picked up Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) book after Simon & Schuster dropped it, said that Pence’s deal with a left-leaning, New York firm points to an establishment-friendly product.

“I expect Mr. Pence will stay in his lane with his memoir, providing one more example that the liberal media establishment can buy conservatives’ complicity,” Ross said.

Trump, Pence relationship remains unclear

This comes as the relationship between Trump and his former VP remains ambiguous, amid rumors of a rift over Pence’s role in certifying Joe Biden’s victory.

At a recent GOP event at Mar-a-Lago, Trump mentioned Pence in the same breath as “dumb son of a b****” Mitch McConnell (R-KY), both men who failed to take up his challenges to the 2020 election.

“I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the legislatures… I like him so much. I was so disappointed,” he said.

However, Pence has dismissed speculation that he and Trump no longer get along.

Moreover, Pence recently launched a political group that describes itself as pitching a middle ground between Trumpian populism and more traditional conservatism, Advancing American Freedom, that won Trump’s endorsement.

  1. I liked Mike Pence but I had wished that he could have been more up front during the 4 years and “fought” along with Trump. Mike seems to be a great gentleman which you don’t see much of anymore but for the White House I would have liked to see him stand up more, he was too much in the back ground which made it seem like Trump was always in the fight by himself. Will I still vote for Trump/Pence, you bet!

  2. The problem is, regular Republican’s are tired of luke warm politics. We want the fire that President Trump brought to the table. That is why so many of us hope that he will run in 2024!! We are tired of capitulating to the Democrats and the Liberal Left Wing Media. We don’t want to go along to get along. We want our rights, freedoms and liberties that SHALL NOT BE INFIRNGED! So Mike Pence can write his luke warm memoire and he can stay in his lane, but he should give up any hope of becoming President because we don’t want comfortable we want UNCOMFORABLE!

  4. I prefer not to see Pence as Pres. Trump’s running mate. Ron DeSantis should be the VP and then when Trump is finished Desantis can carry the torch forward. I think that would make a really great team.

  5. Trump/DeSantis sounds like the best plan I’ve heard since the November boondoggle. I’d be on board with that for sure! The sooner we’re rid of the current bunch of yahoo’s, the better.

  6. Screw Mike Pence. I think the GOP is already full to the brim with gutless COWARDS. Need him like we need leprosy. Another GOP wimp.

    Write to them tell the cowards we want them to look in to the voter fraud.
    The KKK was started and ran by the Democrats as a way to control the people, isn’t this cancel culture the same thing. Read your history.

  8. We have too many comedians, that try updmart themsekf. In reality there is Supreme Judge, that is carefully watching either leadership is done in honesty. Let face that Americans dwell in grave sins, refuse repentance, it is how great IN GOD WE TRUST became just great insult! Wake up hypocrits, look at yourself, your dirty personality, repent, for very soon you will stand before Great Spirit, who will charge you from your stewardship. Do far, Capitol Hill Baboons, you better listen to Nancy Pelosi that proved over years her supremacy… your words, books are just excuses for your failing ! It is because you failed to become good stewards, this country house is falling…

  9. My comments seem to be edited on out — pray against the evil and do good to oppose evil and promote good. With God’s help the depravity pushed on us will fail and we can get back in control of our country.

  10. Does this RINO seriously think that his piece of drivel book will ameliorate and appease those of us who had our vote stolen? Get a clue mike and read my lips — NO! Go back to your hidey hole and don’t stick your head out from under the democrats’ area where the the sun don’t shine. You and ALL RINOS
