Mike Pence is still trying to recover from the tremendous blunder that had him looking like a fool during a recent visit to the Mayo Clinic. The photo-op was meant to make it look as if the vice president cared about coronavirus victims, but when Pence showed up, one thing he purposely left behind proved that he didn’t care about the sick at all.
Pence walked through the halls of the Mayo Clinic, even went into rooms where patients were, all without donning the protective mask he was told to wear the day before the trip. What made it even worse was when Mother Pence got on television wearing a cheap wig and claimed that Mike had no knowledge of the clinic’s policy on masks, regardless of the fact that the CDC recommended face masks in public weeks ago.
Karen Pence on Mike not wearing a mask at Mayo Clinic: "Wearing a mask prevents you from spreading the disease, & knowing that he doesn't have Covid-19, he didn't wear one. It was actually after he left Mayo that he found out they had a policy of asking everyone to wear a mask." pic.twitter.com/aVWmr6BsKP

After that interview, Karen Pence was mocked relentlessly on social media as multiple sources close to Pence revealed that everyone was informed of the policy the day before the visit.
Now, the White House Bureau Chief Steve Herman has tweeted a confirmation that the vice president purposely ignored the warnings that masks would be mandatory. You can see that tweet below:

Any way you look at it, the vice president is a moron. He thought he was privileged enough to ignore hospital policy without anyone even batting an eye. What’s even more shameful is the fact that the Mayo Clinic allowed Pence in the doors, let alone near patients, without a mask on, just because he is VP.
People on Twitter are reeling. Check out their responses to the bureau chief below:
