Pence Will Keep Doing Super-Spreader Rallies After His Aides Test Positive for COVID-19, Ignores CDC Rules
Vice President Mike Pence has announced that he will continue doing his super-spreader rallies even though members of his staff have tested positive for COVID-19.
Instead of following Trump administration guidelines and isolating himself for 14 days after being exposed to people with COVID-19, Pence will continue doing campaign rallies that he has somehow deemed to be “essential” government work, according to numerous journalists.
this is stunning. Pence is clearly at high risk right now. And they're just gonna trot him out there on the trail. https://t.co/3T3VrVqZ6S— Sam Stein (@samstein) October 25, 2020
