I offered both Pres Trump and VP Pence an opportunity to reassure Americans.
Simple question: “What do you say to Americans who are scared?”
Trump, to me: “I say, you’re a terrible reporter.”
Pence, an hour later: “Don’t be afraid. Be vigilant.”
I cannot stand Mike Pence.
How he is able to work-in a healthy dose of kissing Trump’s butt into any subject he may be discussing, is simply astounding.
Breaking on @MSNBC
: The White House is confirming a member of the Vice President's Office has tested positive for coronavirus. The White House advising this individual has not, they say, had close contact with Pence or Trump.
Pence is awful too, but watching him breezily answer the SAME question by the SAME reporter that send Trump over the fucking deep end while he just fumes in the background has gotten me through the morning.
JUST IN: A staff member in Vice President Pence's office has tested positive for the coronavirus https://t.co/AB8uaUOtdY

VP Pence has just claimed there are 10,000 ventilators in storage, 10's of thousands already in hospitals, and the same amount that are capable of being retrofitted stored somewhere. How does this measure up to what we're hearing from healthcare workers and hospitals?
#BREAKING: A staff member in Vice President Mike Pence's office has tested positive for #coronavirus, Pence's spokesperson said Friday evening.
Trump and Pence knew back in January. They fucking knew. And did nothing.
U.S. intelligence reports from January and February warned about a likely pandemic https://t.co/JUiHvlcjt9
Actually, Rick, I just want Dr. Fauci to have his own press conferences, while someone tapes Trunp and Pence and Pompeo is a fake studio and tells them it's a press conference.
Maybe the reason Pence hasn’t gotten tested for Covid19 is that only organisms with spines are susceptible.
JUST IN: A member of the office of Vice President Mike Pence has tested positive for the coronavirus, Pence’s spokeswoman Katie Miller said on Friday.
Miller said neither Pence nor President Trump had close contact with the aide.
When there is a true crisis, we see the stark reality of who is rising to lead and who is shirking responsibility. Watching my mayor say he can’t get a call back after a run around from Pence to Azar is so telling. The story it tells is a grim tale of Trump’s lack of caring. https://t.co/ElbwG9YzFR
I heard one of Mike Pence’s staffers tested positive for Coronavirus. If he has to self isolate, who will Trump name the new Czar?
BREAKING: The White House has confirmed that a member of Vice President Pence's office has tested positive for coronavirus. The White House says that this individual has not had close contact with Pence or Trump.
WHERE ARE THESE MASKS AND SWABS?
Yesterday: Pence claimed yesterday that masks were already available for healthcare workers
Today: Azar blamed healthcare workers for not obtaining them
Meanwhile: doctors/healthcare workers re-using masks and making masks. https://t.co/F1c1LMbyol
It doesn’t have anything to do with asking a question to stop the virus. the question was what can you say to reassure the American people, and Pence answered it just fine.
Need a reason to keep praying?
If Trump and Pence are quarantined due to illness, meet your temporary president: https://t.co/YpPoWUMUyT
