So if all goes wrong, he can fire him and get a new running mate.

See a pattern here of this president, hire people, fire people, nothing sticks to him.


Trump has no character, hides behind his people, then gets rid of them if the results dont suit him.

All should do some checking on Pence when it comes to things like this. He was a gov. when the opioid started. Go look at his stance on giving clean needles to slow it. Go check his AIDS stance.

When you are in business you hire and fire all the time.  The President has been a builder and businessman!  There is no evidence that he wants to rid himself of the Vice President!  


Why would you invent a strory without proof?  The President has a lot of confidence in Mike Pence!  Plus why wouldn't he delegate responsibility?  That's what a good leader does and what leadership is all about!  


There are soooo many responsibilities that a President has including many meetings, negotiating agreements and meeting with world leaders!  VP Pence will report to the President about what the CDC suggests!

Trump puts Pence in charge of coronavirus response

In naming Pence, Trump defied calls to appoint an outside expert to coordinate the response.


...."I know full well the importance of presidential leadership, the importance of administration leadership and the vital role of partnerships of state and local governments and health authorities in responding to the potential threat of dangerous infectious diseases," Pence said.


....The White House's messaging of all things being under control has clashed with more wary warnings from elsewhere in the federal government. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters Tuesday that a widespread outbreak in the United States was an inevitability — remarks that outraged Trump.


Philip - So if all goes wrong, he can fire him and get a new running mate.

I think that's correct and gosh, what an opportunity for rump.  Pence's robot face/attitude is going to be showing some cracks in that fake persona soon enough.  It will be interesting to see how he navigates rump's lies around Nancy Messonnier's truths and expertise.

It's possible rump's rage at her caused him to step aside before he starting tweeting insults and threats towards her.

It fits his pattern.  Bullies are afraid of confrontation.

Very nice connection. pence is a trump puppet for sure. But it all ties together, azar was also surprised that pence was appointed to oversee this. Too bad azar, that's the reality of being a trump puppet!

Both of you might be gone tomorrow!
