A reporter called out Pence at a COVID-19 Press Conference as few have before. A visibly shaken Pence gave a rambling nonsensical response.
Reporter causes Pence to give rambling nonsensical response
CBS News reporter Paula Reid meant business when she got her opportunity to grill VP Pence.
“It really does sound though like you’re saying do as we say not as we do,” Paula Reid said. “You’re telling people to listen to local officials but in Tulsa, you defied local health officials to have an event that even though you say it didn’t result in a spike, dozens of Secret Service agents, dozens of campaign staffers are now quarantined after positive tests. And then in Arizona, one of the hardest-hit States, you packed a church with young people who weren’t wearing masks. So how can you say that the campaign is not part of the problem that doctor Fauci laid out.:
Pence had no choice but to revert to the freedom and “don’t tread on me” defense.
“Well, I want to remind you again that the freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble is enshrined in the Constitution in the United States,” a sheepish Pence replied. “And even in a health crisis the American people don’t forfeit our constitutional rights. And working with state officials as we did in Oklahoma, as we did in Arizona, we’re creating settings where people can choose to participate in the political process and will continue to do that.”
After Pence gave the answer his master likely demanded ensuring people know they intend on continuing rallies, he went into an incoherent ramble.
