Why didn’t one of the idiots there tell him and give him a mask , D’oh

Why didn't he notice that every single person around him, including, apparently, his staff, was wearing a mask and ask for one, too?

Was anyone else visiting that was part of VP Pence’s entourage, given a mask or was wearing one?

Trump’s disinfectant statement and now this are self inflicted wounds that need to stop.

They both need a new advisers.

Just so you know, if it is a mask-only unit, they make you wear a mask or you don’t go in.

Do you honestly think Trump listens to anyone?

Taking a stand by responding to a nebulous allegation (the Twitter post in question has already been abused) isn't leadership. That's the kind of thing President Trump would do, but it's not a characteristic of leadership ... it's a characteristic of a WWE-style president who sees everything like this as an opportunity to hammer his opponents mercilessly. That's great, but it is so NOT Pence's style.

If Pence is asked a direct question, he can give a direct answer. Absent that, he should just go about his business. THAT is leadership.

Yes, there is no reason the hospital would not have provided him with a mask when he arrived.

I have been to a hospital 4 times in the past couple weeks, and there are signs EVERYWHERE that you must put on a mask when you walk in the door.

Right on, that is leadership. Pence has intelligence briefings and knows more about this subject that almost anybody on the planet right now... its was symbol to us that this virus is as not lethal we are led to believe .

Hospitals don't require visitors to wear masks always when visiting other types of victims under normal times, he was just following normal protocol as a LEADER, just as he did when he visited Steve Scalise who had been shot as an act of political malice, Pence did not wear a mask on that day either , so why is there a difference now if the message is going to be it is safe to reopen the country? This was a message to tell us all these types of “victims” are not as contagious as we are led to believe, and this is Leadership, people would have to be blind to not know what he was doing and how much he and Trump with experts have discussed when they go out, will they be wearing or not wearing masks to set an example

That’s an option too.

But the Mayo Clinic has few equals as a germ-rich environment.

In the words of the late Dr. Robert Mendelsohn there are germs in there you can’t find anyplace else in town.

Do you honestly think Trump listens to anyone?

Sadly he appears to listen to Dr. Fauci. And I anxiously awake each day eager for him to prove me wrong on that.

Exactly. Are they afraid to have a simple chat w Pence and his staff asking that they wear masks?

You’d also think Pence and staff would observe everybody else wearing masks and ask “Should we be wearing masks, too?”

“This one’s on Mayo. That he’s the VP is all the more reason Mayo should have requested the mask. And for anyone who accompanied him.”

Yeah, the Mayo people must have gone out of their way to tell everyone except the Vice President about masks, or they hid the masks from him.

Not responding - letting his wife make excuses for him is poor behavior politically.

Here, join the rest of the Democrats.....

If Pritzker were to wear a mask, we would know he is a crook.

“It was actually after he left Mayo Clinic that he found
out they had a policy of asking everyone to wear a mask,”

So why didn’t someone tell him? I wouldn’t wear one unless someone told me to.

Might be interesting to look into who the admin(s) are at that facility. Political leanings and such.

I think 'that admin' was a Mr Ham from the Mayo Clinic.

These “medical experts” have yet to explain to me how something as tiny as a virus will be stopped by plain cloth.

LOL, really, FR has de-evolved into this? So sad.
