NRA Convention Crowd Boos Mike Pence in His Home State

Mike Pence faced boos from the crowd as he took the stage at the NRA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“Well hello NRA,” Pence addressed the convention attendees.

The crowd immediately started booing the former vice president.

“I love you too,” Pence responded.


In contrast, the convention greeted President Trump with a round of applause and shouts of “USA, USA, USA!”


FOX News reported:

Former President Donald Trump, who spoke later in the day, appeared to joke at Pence’s expense over the boos, telling the crowd he heard they “made news” with the welcome.

“I hope you gave Pence a good warm approval,” Trump said, as members of the crowd booed again.

Trump initially appeared as if he was going to stop the crowd from booing, telling them, “No, because he is a nice man if you want to really know the truth. He is. He’s a good man.”

He then, however, said he heard it was a “very rough” appearance for Pence, and proceeded to continue joking about the exchange.

“It’s a big news story. You’ve made news today. I don’t know what you did, but you made news today with the introduction you gave,” he said, before going on to detail polls showing him leading all other declared and potential Republican presidential candidates, including Pence.

Pence has suffered in popularity among many Republicans following his role in certifying the 2020 presidential election results after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Trump. The former president has maintained the results were fraudulent and part of a scheme to steal the election from him in favor of President Biden.

During his speech at the NRA Convention, Trump said school shootings are a “spiritual problem.”
