Donald Trump and Mike Pence are ill-equipped to handle the threat of a pandemic. Pence thought that smoking did not cause cancer. He believes he can pray illness away. If things go south, this is the person Trump decided to take the fall.
Pence has been making the Sunday talk show rounds talking about coronavirus-19. Clearly, he will be the one to take the fall when the virus spreads, and it will.
Trump has been struggling with the fear of losing the campaign in 2020. He said “Mini Mike Bloomberg’s consultants” were “Making a fortune:”
‘Mini Mike Bloomberg’s consultants and so-called “advisors”(how did that advice work out? Don’t ask!), are on the “gravy train” and all making a fortune for themselves pushing Mini hard, when they knew he never had what it takes. Don’t pay them anymore Mike, they led you down….’
Trump decided that the former mayor of New York City would ruin his reputation. Coming from the president, that seemed like a rather strange comment.
Then, POTUS finally commented on coronavirus. He claimed that travelers would be screened. From “Mini-Mike” to complete separation from the possible pandemic:
‘…..a very dark and lonely path! Your reputation will never be the same!’
‘Coronavirus: In addition to screening travelers “prior to boarding” from certain designated high risk countries, or areas within those countries, they will also be screened when they arrive in America. Thank you!
