Mike Pence recently spoke at the Faith & Freedom but wasn’t warmly received by some people in the crowd.
As he began his speech a person in the crowd started to shout “traitor” and a few seconds later more people in the crowd started to chant “traitor” too.
Pence ignored the crowd and started to speak even louder which made things a little awkward.

The Washington Times covered the story and shared these details:
Mike Pence was heckled Friday as the former vice president spoke at the conservative Faith & Freedom Coalition‘s summit in Orlando, Florida. Reporters watching said the jeers included cries of “traitor!”
Mr. Pence was delivering a speech to conference attendees when the heckling erupted. Some journalists said people shouting “traitor” were led out or left willingly immediately afterward.
“He spoke over it, ignoring the outburst,” reported NBC News political correspondent Ali Vitali

The Daily Mail got the scoop too:
Former Vice President Mike Pence was booed and called a ‘traitor’ at a Faith & Freedom Coalition event in Orlando Friday.
‘It is great to be back with so many patriots. Dedicated to faith and freedom and the road to the majority,’ Pence said at the ‘Road to Majority’-themed event.
As he began thanking Ralph Reed, the head of the Faith & Freedom coalition, he was met with boos and people loudly shouting ‘traitor!’
The Road to Majority conference attracted a number of conservative household names including Sens. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Ron Johnson, Rick Scott, Marsha Blackburn, Lindsey Graham and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise.
So why is Pence being called a traitor?
Well, the answer lies in his decision to “certify” the election on January 6th.
Mike Pence stood in front of Congress as the President of the Senate and read from some papers as if he was a robot and declared Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 election.
Pence uttered no words about election fraud but rather kept his head down most of his time while speaking as if he was afraid.
After he swung the gavel to the joint session, Pelosi and him were seen rubbing elbows almost immediately.
Here’s a flashback:
