A few days ago the chief-executive informed us that, from this day forward, Mike Pence shall be in charge of All-Things-Coronavirus.
Gee, I'm so relieved.
Putting an imbecile like Mike at the head of something so serious is not a particularly good idea. In case you're not aware of this let me enlighten you to the degree I can: As governor of Indiana, Pence was solely responsible for the breakout of an AIDS epidemic - years after we that that sort of health emergency was in our past. You see, a certain part of the Hoosier state was in desperate need of clean needles a number of years ago, and Dense Pence refused to supply them - as he was authorized to do. The result was the worst breakout of the HIV virus in a very long time. And now this same man is in charge of overseeing this latest potential catastrophe?
This can only end badly.

I woke up yesterday to hear on the news radio that New York State, where I live, has the highest number of diagnosed coronavirus cases in the country - 118 at last count. This does not fill anyone bothering to pay attention with any serious degree of confidence. We've been rather lucky since January 20, 2017. There has been no major national emergency that has yet exposed - to even the most faithful - the utter incompetency of this administration. I have a feeling that's about to change. I sincerely hope and pray I'm proven wrong. During the tenure of the Obama administration, centers were set up at strategic locations all across the nation to deal with this sort of thing. Trump had most of them dismantled. That is why right wing form of governance is always such a bad thing for any nation's security. These people don't think long range.

Wasn't this a great idea?

Typical two faced lying liberals.

According to the CDC, from April 2009 to April 2010,(Obama was President) the H1N1 outbreak resulted in 12,469 deaths in the U.S. The 2020 coronavirus (COVID-19) had over 4,000 deaths around the world as of March 10, 2020. As of March 10, 2020, there have been 25 deaths in the U.S.

Trump’s administration declared a public health emergency PRIOR to any deaths. The first person to die from the coronavirus in the U.S. died in late February 2020. The truth is Vice President Mike Pence's office is in charge of all novel coronavirus MESSAGING after several aides blamed negative coverage about the response on too many mixed messages from senior members of the administration. NYT 2/27/20

Pence put into place procedures that stopped a HIV out break in Scott County, Indiana, caused by needle sharing. Pence who had been against handing out clean needles bent his position and within months the HIV our break was contained. He did the correct thing and ended the outbreak. So why again is he the wrong person?

"We applaud President Trump for putting Vice President Pence in charge of the U.S. government’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense we co-chair made this very recommendation four years ago. Too bad it took a crisis to get it done, but that’s Washington." The White House deserves credit for issuing a National Biodefense Strategy in 2018
Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Tom Ridge

4 YEARS AGO, WHY THAT WAS WHEN OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT. Wonder if he wants to take credit for that? But more importantly, when will the left stop using this crisis for political gain?
Example: CA Dem Gov. Newsom Praises Trump’s Coronavirus Response: ‘Every Single Thing He Said They Followed Through On’.

Schumer on Coronavirus: ‘We Are Very Worried About the President’s Incompetence’

Just once Tom don't follow the anti Trump cult talking points, this is above politics.

The idiocy has started. Trump has made most meetings about the pandemic top secrete so most health officials cannot attend because they do not have the required security clearances.

I guess since Trump is a genius he does not need advice from health experts. This has never happened before but I expect a lot more dumb stuff to go on when the president and vice president have a combined IQ of 100.
