Mike Pence: 'It's Not Over Til It's Over,' Twitter Users: 'It's Over'

“Although Joe Biden has won the 2020 presidential election, Mike Pence would rather quote legendary New York Yankee Yogi Berra than face reality. The vice president took to Twitter on Monday to declare “It’s not over til it’s over,” and vowed to keep fighting until “every legal vote” is counted. Told @VP Team Today, “it ain’t over til it’s over.. and this AIN’T over!” President @realDonaldTrump has never stopped fighting for us and we’re gonna Keep Fighting until every LEGAL vote is counted! 🇺🇸— Mike Pence (@Mike_Pence) November 9, 2020 Although Biden was projected the winner on Saturday by The Associated Press and other media outlets, based on nonpartisan analysis of the vote in several states, Trump and some of his allies have repeatedly claimed he won the election.  The president has also accused the Democratic Party of “wrongdoing” without providing evidence to back the allegations. Not surprisingly, many Twitter users had a different take from Pence about the state of the election. Narrator: It is over. https://t.co/Mu7USlmJWM— Gabrielle Levy 🌸 (@gabbilevy) November 9, 2020 It’s over, Mike. Hang it up. Move on. https://t.co/wXRfP99lWp— Emily C. Singer (@CahnEmily) November 9, 2020 Narrator: \”But it was, in fact, over. Pence continued to embarrass himself, mislead people and stoke the passions of the violent subset of Trump supporters who vowed to fight on, even as the solid majority that ended his political career looked on him with derision.\” https://t.co/Fqu6bIkrpt— Justin Hendrix #ProtectTheResults (@justinhendrix) November 9, 2020 Some people pointed out that neither the administration nor Trump campaign officials have provided any hard evidence supporting claims of the type of election malfeasance that would change the results in a handful of crucial states.  We’re still waiting to hear specific examples of voter fraud from the Trump campaign. The much-discussed PA ballots court case would not affect the outcome. In the meantime, the rest of the world is treating Joe Biden as president-elect. https://t.co/7YMuR4ugEI— Scott Detrow (@scottdetrow) November 9, 2020 One man suggested that the timing of Pence’s “keep fighting” tweet was a little suspect, considering the vice president will be off for the rest of the week.

Hillary conceded to you guys 90 minutes after the last polls closed in Alaska.You’ve had two days, and you lost by a lot more than Hillary did.It’s over, Mike. Concede and let the president-elect begin the transition. https://t.co/ApT9yUnU8Y— Dennis Mersereau (@wxdam) November 9, 2020 One woman noted that Pence’s use of the phrase “every legal vote” sounded like a dog whistle. LEGAL vote is code for White votes. They want them to stop counting the votes from Black and Brown areas from Black and Brown people. They are not even subtle about it. https://t.co/czPD8SaCtv— Darlene McDonald (@VoteDarlene) November 9, 2020 Another guy got a completely different vibe from Pence’s tweet. *divorced dad at his ex-wife’s lesbian wedding energy https://t.co/pu1HP2L3gW— Matt Oswalt (@MattOswaltVA) November 9, 2020
