Vice President Mike Pence re-upped the notion shared by both the Trump administration and its allies that Democrats are weaponizing coronavirus fears to make the President look bad during Sunday morning TV news appearances.

On CNN Sunday morning, Pence defended Donald Trump Jr.’s remark that Democrats want Americans to die from coronavirus in an effort to slam the President.

“But responding to the kind of things that have been hurled is understandable,” Pence said. “But what the President’s charged us to do — in my conversation with Speaker Pelosi, with Senator Schumer, my conversations with Republican and Democratic governors — is to set the politics aside on this and to work the problem.”

Watch Pence’s remarks on CNN below:

First and foremost Chuck Todd should have asked this asshole.................why are you and your criminal enterprise shutting down the health experts from talking about this virus and having them provide the transparency the country needs...................by placing a gag order on them with threats they could be fired......................

And then there is this person from Fix Noise Maria Bartiromo....................and we know why this person did not even attempt to do it..................because she is Murdoch lackey.................

The country gets Two fucking idiots having a conversation..................from two different news platforms, basically saying nothing and getting nothing in return........................ .

2. Can we drive a stake through the heart of "politicization"?

Politics is how a democracy makes decisions. The opposite of "politicization" is "submit to a dictator".

9. Calling out your bullshit is not politicizing a global health emergency...

Don’t be a child and sulk when the adults call out your behavior.

Own it; apologize and make it right...

Gutting the budgets and implementing hiring freezes to the agencies tasked with public health emergencies is bullshit.

Fix it!

11. Pence is no more fit to be

president than his idol tRump is. Little milquetoast, getting his orders from Mommy and the orange arse. He just fades into the woodwork in any room he enters. He slithers in, and disappears. No personality whatsoever. Just blah.

12. If by "politicizing" you mean "calling out your incompetence", then, yes, guilty as charged

Now act like a fucking grown up and get the fuck off the TV and appoint some fucking experts who know how to deal with a public health crisis.

17. Okay,Mikey is worried his Orange Buddy will

 

dump his sorry Ass before June if he does not play his roll as defender of the King.

Pence and his Staffers read the Press and bulletin Boards know doubt. And this Sucker knows he is in a trap and the only way he survives is kissing the Orange Anus below the belt line.

18. So pence was put in charge of a hoax,lol,

And now claiming the Democrats are politicizing it , when trump claims it's contained, is a show of contempt for the truth, and why he and trump are so scared of it exposing their complete incompetence with this now. Even the people in the markets knew how stupid trumps claim it's contained was, and couldn't trust him. Putting pence in charge, a science denier, shows they only care about hiding the truth about this virus spreading here and around the world so fast, while he and trump lie to the American people repeatedly.They don't care about the people, and trump only cares about himself, so he lies, a lot.

26. It only feels like politicization Mike

Because your administration got caught with they're pants down on this pandemic and, as a direct result of cuts your administration has made to vital resources, we're left with this shitstorm, half assed response, so forgive us for calling out all the crap your administration has done and spare us all the outrage.

27. A public health crisis is not about politics

This just shows how twisted Republican’s thinking really is. They politicize everything. Now they’re projecting their twisted thinking into Democrats.
