War Room: Pandemic guest claims VP Mike Pence was “divinely appointed” to overturn the results of the 2020 election Written by Media Matters Staff Published 01/05/21 2:34 PM EST While far-right figures including President Donald Trump have claimed otherwise, it would be unconstitutional for Vice President Mike Pence to unilaterally overturn the results of the presidential election. Video file Citation From the January 5, 2021, edition of War Room: Pandemic STEVE BANNON (HOST): What would you recommend that Mike Pence and the president read tonight as they think about these momentous decisions they have to make tomorrow? ... RABBI ARYEH SPERO (GUEST): I would say, Congressman, Vice President Mike Pence, husband of Karen, this is the moment for which God has appointed you, as Mordechai said to Esther, this is the moment of your appointment. And I would say be strong. You've got the Constitution on your side. You have the facts on your side. We cannot allow this nation to be decided by fraud, it's a fraud we all know in front of our eyes happened and say, Vice President Pence, do the right thing. Say that these fraudulent votes, all of this should go back to the legislatures, the state legislatures like the founding fathers had envisioned and let them certify in their own states. They know what's best. If these electoral votes are legitimate or they are the consequences of fraud. Mike Pence is a wonderful man and perhaps this might be his historic moment and his divinely appointed moment.
