Mike Pence Hands Off Golden Microphone to Lady Gaga In Controversial Inauguration Moment

Former Vice-President Mike Pence handed off a Golden Microphone to Pop star Lady Gaga during the Wednesday’s inauguration of President Joe Biden.

The moment became a viral sensation online and a somewhat controversial one to boot.

As Bustle reports:

Lady Gaga’s performance at the presidential inauguration of Joe Biden was memorable for a million reasons, but one quiet moment really caught social media’s attention. Shortly before she sang the national anthem, the singer was handed a golden microphone and her brief interaction with Mike Pence sparked an influx of jokes and memes about the awkward pairing.

The singer, who wore a custom red and blue Schiaparelli gown with a gold dove brooch, earned rave reviews for her passionate performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” as well as for her seemingly cool reaction to the now-former vice president. Though it’s unclear what, if anything, the singer said to Pence before her performance — though she clearly spoke to Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and the Obamas — Gaga has frequently been a vocal critic of Pence and his policies.

Did Pence debase himself by handing a golden microphone to Gaga, or just for showing up at Biden’s inauguration at all? A place full of people who hate him? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Mike is probably there at Trump’s suggestion. He likes Pence a lot, trusts him and wants him to run in 4 years. Give Trump AND Pence more credit than that!

It’s a shame that there isn’t a real press covering this event. They might have pointed out the peaceful, but awkward, transfer of power.
But after my time in the re-education camp I will remember how glorious this inauguration was for President Harris.

Gaga hates Pence for his religion because it’s different from hers (whatever that is). She’s blind to her own bigotry. FWIW, I’m not a religious man but tolerate and respect others as long as they treat me the same way. Arrogance, intolerance and corruption that now characterize the democrat party are anathema to any constitutional republic, particularly the U.S.

Read Saul Aliski’s Rules for Radicals and Clowerd and Piven and you will see what they are doing to this once great country. We are done and there may be now way to get it back without force if we still have the 2nd amendment to protect us when this is done.

Did you ever drag your fingernails across an old chalkboard, if so then you know what Lady GooGoo sounded like singing the National Anthem? She looks as if she got dressed in the dark out of an old GoodWill dumpster. You would think that a person with her money could afford a decent dress. Lady GooGoo I think JC Penny is having a party dress sale this weekend. Don’t these Hollywood Elite know that Socialism doesn’t care about who you think you are, or where in the social order you used to be placed. Under Socialism, only the high-ranking government officials have money and power. Look at Venezuela the only Multi-Millionaire in the entire country is the President’s daughter.

I don’t care about Pence. He’s a backstabber and a turncoat. He didn’t go to President Trump’s farewell address or mention Trump’s name in his own farewell address even though Trump thanked Pence for his service in his own farewell address. President Trump has more class and Christian charity in his little pinky than Pence has in his entire body. Americans will NEVER forget. Pence was the bargaining chip along with Sessions when McConnell and the GOP said that they’d endorse Trump back in 2016. Trump should have picked another to campaign with in 2020. He should also have fired Barr when he didn’t do any better than Sessions and replaced him with Rudy Guiliani,Trey Gowdy or some other conservative who would have gotten the job done and who would have worked tirelessly to ensure that we had a fair election system prior to the 2020 election AND that Biden and/or his son, Hunter, would have been indicted for Burisma.

Mike Pence is a class act gentleman. He was an excellent Governor in Indiana, Senator and VP. He at all times was humble and unfailingly gain credit to President Trump throughout the Warp Speed COVID program.
The Republican Legislatures were spineless to not “stop the steal” at the State Levels. Pence conducted himself in accordance with the Constitution, followed the law with the cards he was dealt. Why he’d subject himself to the vile and hateful attacks would be a good question. If I were him, I’d start to collect my pensions from Governor, Senator and VP, and live his life with his family in Peace, write books, gives speeches…… If Mike Pence ran for ANYTHING, I would certainly vote for him.

  • President Trump put Pence in a very awkward, “no win” posture when he said Pence should interrupt the Jan 6th certification. The spineless state legislators dropped the ball. Jan 6th was NOT the time to “stop the steal”

Get rid of Dominion Systems, Get Rid of mail-in ballots. Let the Dem’s overplay and abuse their “new toy”, and we can take back the House in 2022….

Mike Pence, by refusing to return the duplicate sets of electoral votes to their respective state legislatures for certification, handed our nation of liberty over to a bunch of communists without a fight. Face it, the Democrat Party has become an evil criminal enterprise bent upon ruling as a tyrannical totalitarian regime. The Washington Establishment republicans have destroyed any loyalty to the Republican Party which has diminished itself in prestige and dropped to a great depth in the eyes of Trump supporters. In the future, I will vote for a republican only if have a good reason, not simply because there is an “R” following the name. The Republican Party has a very long road back to respectability.

True Christians realize that God is the One to enforce His laws, not Christians. We are to love our enemies. We are not to be enemies to our enemies, no matter how much they are enemies to us. But we are also to keep ourselves from their evil acts, no matter how much they insist we condone, endorse, or participate in them. We don’t force people to do or believe anything, but we keep ourselves from their evil.

This is a legitimate transfer of power, and V.P. Pence did his duty to represent the outgoing administration. His actions at the event were awkward because the President maintained [without proof] that the election had been stolen from him, but at least Pence represented them at the inauguration after the President left and wished the new administration well.
