Two Stupid Gits

“[Irresponsible] Pence responded to criticisms that he defied Mayo Clinic policy by not wearing a mask during his visit Tuesday to the campus, saying he complied with federal guidelines and felt it was his duty to speak to workers at the facility unencumbered by a facial covering.

“‘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,’ he told reporters, saying he is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

“The CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public to help prevent transmitting the virus to others. ‘And since I don't have the coronavirus, I thought it'd be a good opportunity for me to be here, to be able to speak to these researchers, these incredible health care personnel, and look them in the eye and say thank you.’

“Instructions on the Mayo Clinic website request that all patients, visitors and personnel bring and wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“In a tweet eventually deleted but captured in screenshots and by the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, the Mayo Clinic wrote that it had ‘informed @VP of the masking policy prior to his arrival today.’ …” (NPR).

“…Meanwhile, [Know-it-all] Kushner, who has been helping with the effort to get medical supplies to states that need them, suggested in an interview with Fox & Friends that the federal government has accomplished its mission.

“‘We’re on the other side of the medical aspect of this. And I think that we’ve achieved all the different milestones that are needed. So the federal government rose to the challenge, and this is a great success story,’ he said.

“The administration, he added, is preparing the country to ‘get as close back to normal as possible as quickly as possible,’ and said that by July the country would be ‘really rocking again’” (The Guardian).

  1. Today, Mother said that Mike didn't know he was supposed to wear a mask until after he left the hospital. He simply walked through a hospital where everyone else wore masks without noticing. Why, that could happen to anyone. Would Mother lie? Would she claim that Mike was to ignorant to realize that his unmasked face could have spread any other germs that might prove dangerous for patients with reduced immune systems?
    Personally, any man who calls his wife Mother has a problem. Any wife who expects her husband to never be allowed in a room alone with another woman has a problem. Any couple who believe themselves to be above and beyond science because they are immune from all plagues due to God's specific personal protection while the rest of us are not immune are fanatics who should not be allowed to be in governmental positions of power.
    I also believe that neither of them know how to have fun.
    Mother? Super stud who isn't allowed near a lone woman? WWJD?
