A handshake and a dearth of masks at Pence's Republican convention speech - Reuters

BALTIMORE (Reuters) - When U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump greeted supporters at an outdoor venue on Wednesday night for the Republican National Convention, there were few masks in sight - and Pence exchanged at least one handshake.

Anyone who gets near Trump has been tested. He doesn't mixed with the unwashed, even at COVID Express events.

i take it then the US does not need to take any safety precautions in dealing with CV19.

I noticed the lack of safety protocols. My reaction is what type of leadership is being presented when the CDC says one thing and the WO goes and does something else.

Not so much a question if they 'need' to implement safety measures rather than 'should' they

I think it would not be so newsworthy if he was not the Head of the Coronavirus task force.

Leading by example is a thing.

And Pence's super spreader event pales in comparison to Trumps that took place last night.

Mike, welcome to the good fight. and just a little fyi, looks like trump's budget busting spending and tax cuts made their way through congress unchanged. And I'm not even talking about republicans tripping over themselves to spend 3-4 times President Obama's stimulus.

Does one really believe Jeb or Donald's tax plan would ever get through the House and Senate unchanged?
