10. He's probably hoping Trump gets evicted so he can run for the Rs.

I can think of no other reason for him to side against Trump, even with this light touch.

Last week, I heard him say, in response to a question about the pandemic, that they were trying to uphold the First Amendment rights of all Americans (freedom of assembly, IIRC). He was totally wrong on this, IMO.

Then he goes to a church, and sits in the front row wearing a mask.

The Repukes are wavering slightly on the mask issue. I am thinking that they are putting out feelers re dumping Trump (at the convention?), and that Pence hopes that he will be crowned the New King of stalwart evil-doers across the country.

This is all conjecture, of course.
