Vice President Mike Pence defended President Donald Trump's return to holding large rallies, typically with thousands of supporters seen standing shoulder-to-shoulder and not wearing masks, even after 200,000 Americans have died from the novel coronavirus. "Well, we're in an election year," Pence told ABC News Live Anchor Linsey Davis on Wednesday after she pointed out that the governor of Nevada claimed Trump was "putting countless lives in danger" by hosting campaign events in Reno and Las Vegas earlier this month.

This from VP Pence, who heads the White House Coronavirus Task Force and is well aware of his team's official COVID guidelines.

Flaming hypocrite.

I think Pence is a hypocrite. The nfl has found a way to allow fans go to games safely the same should be done for rallies.

I think people supporting the BLM protests are also hypocrites. Some wear masks but there is no social distancing.

All group gatherings are bad right now.

Well, obviously he does.
Pence hasn't had a problem with anything Trumps done so why would he start now?

This is news in the same way as saying tomorrow is Friday is news.

Talking about a guy who was so offended by the movie Mulan in the 90s that he wrote an opinion piece in response to it.
He’s a moron
