Well, now I don't know who to believe.

He didn't wear one, because his lord and master refuses to wear one.
 
2020-04-30 12:06:13 PM  
without wearing a mask, a violation of the Mayo Clinic's rules asking all visitors to wear a mask.

Is the rule to ask or require?

TheHighlandHowler: Is the rule to ask or require?


I looked it up:

Part of our protocol for ensuring your safety is to require all patients, visitors and staff to wear a face covering or mask while at Mayo Clinic to guard against transmission of COVID-19.

You don't wear a mask over your eyes, dipshiat.

His little media toads probably told him that not wearing a mask was a power move. It allowed him to look strong and decisive among the anonymous masked proles.

Either that or it's a Trump move. He simply believes that he's bigger than the rules.

I don't care that everyone in this Administration lies. That's what politicians do. But their willingness to us their political power to force people to lie for them enrages me.

Even the most stupidest person would look around the room full of medical professionals and patients wearing masks and wonder "shouldn't I be wearing one too?".
Christ what an asshole.

Not wearing masks is a deliberate signal to their base that the virus isn't dangerous.

Mayo clinic just showed it doesn't care about the health and safety of staff and patients. If company fails to stand for something because it is easier they can not be trusted to do the right thing ever. Shame and ridicule should be heaped on  Mayo clinic

You've got your pale dudes mixed up. That's Silver in that photo, not Mike Pence.

Silver produces less horseshiat than Pence does.

I like to think the Mayo Clinic had Pence meet them at the "Annex" which is an nearby empty high school filled with actors and disguised with signs.

It's a Pompous Asshole move, and it's because the Bloviator In Chief is too coated in makeup manly to wear a mask, so he doesn't think that anyone around him should wear one either. Also, it's fun for them to flaunt how often they're tested.

It is a fact that it is ok in proper English now to use the double superlatives as sometimes it's the only way to accurately express when more stupider is most stupidest.
 
2020-04-30 12:45:59 PM  
Hang on, now. He didn't wear one because he didn't need it, or he didn't wear one because he didn't know?

Best to get y'alls story straight before you both get out there lying ...
 
2020-04-30 12:46:01 PM  
Pence is an anti-science fundy asshole.

He has no place representing this country or being in charge of anything.

so I could look patients in the eye.

This is what happens what you put Corporate America in charge, for which Trump is a figurehead. Everything is about bullshiat, doing nothing covered up with cronyism. People bought into capitalism way too deep and they worship their Invisible Hand of the Market like a god.

Dr Birx immediately comes to mind.
We watch her die a little every day up there, you know she is just trying to keep shiat from somehow getting worse, and is sacrificing her entire reputation to do so.
It can't be easy.

Didn't Mayo tweet out about his awareness of the mask policy during his visit??
 
2020-04-30 1:16:00 PM  
He should have been thrown the hell out.
 
2020-04-30 1:16:14 PM  
The important part is the Vice President of the United States has to hide behind his wife's skirts.  Those republicans are sure manly.

The Trump Administration is finally acknowledging that the people are Trump's boss and not the other way around.

How? Why?

Karen is speaking to Pence's managers: America in general.

Apparently, he does.

Remember when Clayton Moore was told he couldn't wear the mask and appear as the Lone Ranger anymore?

I saw some people online yesterday get pissed off at Mayo for allowing this. Mayo is set to loose a few billion this year from the pandemic. They have people come all over the world for treatment. My mom met the Dali Lama there a few years back. My mom has seen people come in brief cases full of cash to pay for treatment there. They are a nonprofit, and they are not getting their money to help their patients and to fund research. They need the money from the US government, and they have to suck it up to get it. They know Trump would defund them, if they caused them to look bad.

Wearing a mask prevents you from spreading the disease, & knowing that he doesn't have COVID-19, he didn't wear one.

He doesn't "know". Even with the best test in the world, he only didn't have COVID-19 as of the last moment he was tested. And it does still provide some protection from catching it, just not the complete kind of protection.

Besides, it's called LEADING BY EXAMPLE.

And how could he possibly be "unaware" when literally everyone else was wearing one? Not just Mayo personnel and patients, but also his entire farking entourage?
 
2020-04-30 1:30:08 PM  
Where is the Secret Service in all of this?  I would think they would have forced the issue.

This increases his odds of infection.

Let him gain confidence....you can't spell overconfidence without C-O-V-I-D

How many Karen's and Bubbas are now going to refuse to wear the mask at Mayo
And Mayo clinic will either have to accept it or face the PR backlash or acknowledge Pence violated rules in the future risking whatever repercussions they are fearing now

Exactly.
And his farking wife has to stick up for him with absolute bullschitt... how much more pathetic can these people get?

As for the "Mayo: crickets" part, they said it yesterday... they don't have to say it again.
Personally though, I thought they should have refused his entering.

Maybe they are allowing nature to take its course
It's not like they get blamed for viruses like they would bullets
