Pence is recommending to follow health official's guidelines such as good hygiene, however purposely doesn't mention the wearing of masks & social distancing.
He's telling everyone to get out and go back to their daily business while they test everyone who comes near them and have the sign waivers so they won't get sued. Do as we say, not as we do.

"Remember, keep good hygiene" LMAO. He sounds like a gym teacher in high school. It's so obvious he refuses to recommend wearing a mask. What a giant turd ball. Making a life-and-death recommendation into a political stand. He's disgusting.

Until Mike Pence comes to resolution with his own homosexuality, he will remain an ineffective "leader". Personal, internal conflict is counter productive.

rallies are not part of the "political process" but nothing but a PR show and all in violation of local health regulations.

6000 attended while one blm protest had at least 100000 and that's one gathering in one city on one day. but yes any spike in corona cases is because of trump

I like Fauci’s mask 😀 and what did Pence say? I listened a few times and didn’t hear anything

If Trump would show a picture of him wearing a mask while saying, "I'm capable of making mistakes. I am capable of being wrong." His approval rating would probably go up I atead of down.

This man’s gonna burn in hell for all the lies he makes. I guess that’s part of being a Christian and a republican.Watch Pence on face the nation today one lie after another. Trump speaks to the nation on television and in rallies talks about how he wants to slow down the testing. Pence says it’s not true he didn’t say that. What a joke I guess all Americans heard wrong.

andrew winkenwerder:
It’s really frustrating that they are allowed to say blatant lies like “yes we are having rallies but we have all sorts of measures to protect against the virus at these rallies”

That’s such a blatant lie but 30% of our population will wholeheartedly believe it without even looking into it. Checking people’s temperatures is the only measure they take at these rallies and it’s ABSURD. And it’s an easily verifiable lie.
