Today, Vice President Mike Pence visited the Mayo Clinic to hear about Minnesota’s breakthrough on COVID-19 testing.
And he was the only person not wearing a mask. Even though the Mayo Clinic told him to wear one.

That’s just the latest in Pence and the Trump administration’s failure to listen to the experts and lead by example.
When Pence visited Colorado recently, he didn’t wear a mask there either. And Trump has even refused to follow his own administration’s recommendation to wear a face covering in public to prevent the spread of the virus because he doesn’t want to look bad.
If the Trump administration can’t follow simple coronavirus safety measures, how are we supposed to trust them to lead us through this crisis?
