Stephen Colbert spotted an insult Donald Trump reportedly directed at Mike Pence that must’ve been especially hard on his vice president, who until then was known for his unfailing fealty.
Trump leaned heavily on Pence to try to block the certification of the Electoral College results, but Pence said he couldn’t.
“You don’t understand, Mike. You can do this. I don’t want to be your friend anymore if you don’t do this,” he said, according to “Peril,” the upcoming book by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
