As The Guardian reported, chants of “hang Mike Pence” were heard at the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. Writing on Twitter, Reuters picture editor Jim Bourg, who was in Washington on the day of the insurrection, revealed that he had heard “at least three different rioters” saying that they hoped to “find Vice-President Mike Pence and execute him by hanging him from a Capitol Hill tree as a traitor.” He added, “It was a common line being repeated. Many more were just talking about how the VP should be executed.”
According to Vanity Fair, sources close to the former vice president have revealed that Pence is “still angry that Trump placed his and his family members’ lives in jeopardy.” Speaking to the publication in October 2021, the sources also revealed that, although Trump and Pence have pretty much gone their separate ways, “they still trade phone calls sporadically” (via Yahoo! News).
Meanwhile, Pence is also rumored to be considering a presidential bid in 2024 and has been “making real money for the first time in his life” on the public speaking circuit since leaving his position as vice president. “Running for president is also a great way of making six-figure speeches,” the sources close to Pence added.
