Pence wears face mask during tour of General Motors plant

"Well, let me say, as vice president of the United States, I'm tested for the coronavirus on a regular basis, and everyone who is around me is tested for the coronavirus, and when the CDC issued guidelines about wearing a mask, it was their recognition that people that may have the coronavirus could prevent the possibility of conveying the virus to someone else by wearing a mask," Pence said.


Vice President Pence on Thursday donned a face mask as he toured a General Motors plant in Indiana, marking the first time he's worn a mask on camera.

It came just days after he defended his decision not to wear one in defiance of the Mayo Clinic's policy on a visit to Minnesota.

His wife is claiming Mr Pence 'did not know' about the mask rule at Mayo.

Only, there is documentation that his team knew - and he was literally surrounded by people in masks.

MP, in an airplane, looking around - how come everyone around them have these backpacks on?!

For people accustomed to as much privilege and deference as the Prez and Veep, coming to realize that some rules apply to everyone (even them) is a slow, painful, difficult process.

At least he’s doing it now.
It sets a better example to the mindless follow-the-leader types.

MP is a Midwesterner; I was shocked he did not follow Mayo Clinic policy.

Given that 'Mother' is defending him publicly, I wonder whether she intervened privately.

How did he look in their eyes with a mask on?

Ooh, he didn’t follow Daddy’s example. He could still be dropped from the ticket, drafting Nikki Haley would help Drumpf neutralize a Dem female VP candidate.

Edit: And of course, he already set up Pence as the fall guy for the pandemic fiasco.

Pence had to call dad to make sure it was OK to wear a mask.

Blue collar workers are presumptively dirtier than physicians to a man like him.

She didn't defend him so much as she lied. She claimed they were never told in advance about the mask requirement. A reporter (Voice of America I think) traveling on the VP's plane later tweeted the the entire traveling party had been put on notice by the Mayo Clinic.

The press secretary later told that reporter he should go find another vice president to cover because he was no longer covering this one.

The Mayo Clinic tweeted that the entire VP team had been told of all PPE policy prior to the visit including the expectation of wearing masks. That tweet was later deleted.
