Why delete the tweet?
And if it was a concern everyone should wear a mask why did no one at the Mayo Clinic ask VP Pence to wear a mask when he entered the clinic? Did someone want him on video not wearing a mask?
I like Pence but the mans a twit.
Either he comes out and defends himself by saying he had the corona or that the risk of transmission was minimal or he owns up to it.
Not responding - letting his wife make excuses for him is poor behavior politically.
But then this is how he acted during the entire RFRA debacle.
We gotta start finding someone to run for 2024
Is this going to be Mask Gate now?
I can’t wear a mask regardless of what the Mayo Clinic policy is anyway, so I’m not about to say anyone else has to.
Of course they did not want him wearing a mask. Photo op.
These “medical experts” have yet to explain to me how something as tiny as a virus will be stopped by plain cloth.
It’s like trying to stop a sandstorm with a chain link fence.
Wonder if the hospital admin. failed to make the VP (or his staff) aware prior to or upon arrival deliberately. Stranger things have happened. IMO its incumbent upon the hospital to make sure everyone is aware of their policies.
Why didn’t one of the idiots there tell him and give him a mask , D’oh
And so no one there politely reminded the VP that he was required to wear a mask?
They just let him proceed?
This one’s on Mayo. That he’s the VP is all the more reason Mayo should have requested the mask. And for anyone who accompanied him.
The amount of intelligence and science briefings Pence has had on this subject, not just medical training in general , but detailed specific training on this virus, how lethal it really is , how it spreads , who is spreading it ,the ineffectiveness of masks .. AND his life on the line, plus knowing he is not infected probably updated hourly, Pence knows what he was doing. Shouldn’t we be questing the intellect of the press for being this clueless , not the other way around... ?
Either spineless drones were afraid to tell the VP what to do or evil thugs wanted to set the VP up. Either way, it’s a sad commentary on Mayo.
Was anyone else visiting that was part of VP Pence’s entourage, given a mask or was wearing one?
Trump’s disinfectant statement and now this are self inflicted wounds that need to stop.
They both need a new advisers.
Just so you know, if it is a mask-only unit, they make you wear a mask or you don’t go in.
Exactly. Are they afraid to have a simple chat w Pence and his staff asking that they wear masks?
You’d also think Pence and staff would observe everybody else wearing masks and ask “Should we be wearing masks, too?”
“It was actually after he left Mayo Clinic that he found
out they had a policy of asking everyone to wear a mask,”
So why didn’t someone tell him? I wouldn’t wear one unless someone told me to.
Ok, you walk into a room and EVERYONE is wearing a mask. And you are at a medical research facility. Where they research infectious diseases.
And it doesnt dawn on you that you should mask up?
Its not like he is meeting in some benign place, with regular folks, for a normal purpose?
I drilled into my kids heads when they were little: Observe what is happening around you.
I think he is blind as a wuhan bat on some things
Good for the VP for not wearing a mask.
Everyone else was wearing a mask? Good. The VP was safe from their germs and vice versa.
So...the fact that every single person he met in the hospital except him was wearing a mask wasn't a giveaway?
