Pence Is Going To Utah Because Fuck National Security Is Why
Today's "Aren't You Just Precious?" award goes to CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang, who tweeted the following:
LOL! Vice President Starscream knows as much about President Covid-tron's health as we do, which is nothing reliable. All Trump and those close to him care about is remaining in power, so of course they are going to send Pence out to campaign on his behalf like a good little sycophant rather than, say, keeping him in Washington for the nation's security when the president is gravely ill.
The Trump crime family wouldn't keep Pence in Washington for the very reason that it would reek of weakness. People might suspect that the president has one foot on the grave and the other on a banana peel. No one with the last name Trump cares about national security or continuity of government. All that matters is digging Trump out of his current electoral hole.
Pence shouldn't be traveling anyway because he was in the same room with multiple people who've since tested positive. If I were him, I wouldn't show my face in public on the general principle that I'm the supposed head of the White House coronavirus task force and now almost everyone in the White House has coronavirus.
