    Default GOP Rep. Tom Rice voted for Trump's impeachment because Trump did what dictators do.

    • Rep. Tom Rice defended his vote to impeach Trump over his role in inciting the Capitol insurrection.
    • The South Carolina lawmaker called Trump a "bully" and said his actions were "completely despicable."
    • Rice faces several Republican challengers hoping to unseat him in a primary election.


    Republican Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina defended his vote earlier this year to impeach President Donald Trump over his role in inciting the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6.

    "I took an oath to defend the Constitution. I didn't take an oath to defend Donald Trump," Rice said in an interview with The Washington Post published on Sunday. "What Trump did was a frontal assault on the Constitution."

    Rice expressed no regrets over his decision, telling his constituents at an event last week that Trump was a "bully" and that his actions on that day were "completely despicable," The Post reported.

    "I will vote that way every single time," the Republican lawmaker said, according to The Post.

    Rice also blasted Trump for tweeting an attack against Vice President Mike Pence while his supporters were storming the Capitol and Pence was being rushed to safety.

    "For him to be calling Mike Pence a coward and him sitting at the White House surrounded by Secret Service and tweeting while Mike Pence is in the middle of all that, and he's a coward? Give me a break," Rice said at the event, according to The Post.

    Trump had said Pence lacked "courage" for refusing to overturn the results of the presidential election over Trump's false claims that it was "rigged" and "stolen" from him. The vice president has no authority to challenge the results, and there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election.

    "If the president, by force, can intimidate Congress into voting their way, then we might as well do away with Congress and hand it over to a king," Rice said. "What he did in my mind is what dictators do."

    The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

    I have no problem with Rice losing his seat in 2022, but that will be up to the Republicans in his district.......
