Pence is NOT Taking Hydroxychloroquine

He would, but the doctor has not recommended it, he says. But do you hear that Mr. President? He would! Mike Pence, always carefully staying in President Trump’s good graces. Watch for the point in the second term when he begins to “subtly distance” himself and “become his own man” as 2024 approaches. Nevertheless, Trump’s announcement that he is taking it is a bad idea.

White House Abolishing Coronavirus Task Force Around Memorial Day

The White House will put an end to the coronavirus task force, transferring responsibility to the agencies, Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday. Not sure I get the timing here.

Video || Pence Tells Democrats Not to Politicize Coronavirus

Well, they will. They will attach all kinds of conditions to funding for fighting the virus and use it to attack Trump and derail his reelection campaign. He will probably give them what they want, because he has to, both as a political matter and for public safety. Not that Trump isn’t capable of politicizing the issue too . . . Vice President Pence is

Pence: NBA a ‘Wholly Owned Subsidiary’ of China

Vice President Pence Thursday assailed the NBC and Nike for their hypocrisy, pretending to stand for social justice — except when it comes to their bottom line, which dictates that they not anger communist China over Hong Kong. All this is true. How about calling on Americans to reconsider buying products made in China, and to call on businesses to start finding other low-wage countries

From the Washington Examiner: Pete Buttigieg criticized Vice President Mike Pence and Christian politicians who support controversial Trump policies as hypocritical, but stopped short of calling them “sinful,” as Joe Biden did. “I’ll be careful to use that word to kind of point out a speck in my brother’s eye,” the South Bend mayor told Religion News Service when asked whether politicians who supported family separation at the

Pence Plane Diverted Back to Washington from New Hampshire Trip

Vice President Pence scrapped a planned event in New Hampshire Tuesday and headed back to Washington for what his office characterized as something that “came up” but was not an emergency. Some news outlets were reporting, more believably, that there was an emergency of some kind. I’d note, without trying to raise alarm, that in 20 years of covering the White House, I cannot remember

Video || Vice President Pence at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

President Trump is visiting Japan on Memorial Day, hoping to keep the United States out of another war, this one with North Korea. I’ve disagreed with his methods, but not his motive. He’s at least trying to pick up a can that’s been kicked down the road by the last three presidents. So Mike Pence went to Arlington Cemetery this year to mark the day.
