Maddow Rips Pence for Addressing a Largely Mask-Less RNC Audience

Last week’s Democratic National Convention was completely virtual. The party wanted to make sure that no one became sick with Coronavirus as a result of their event. The Republican party, on the other hand, has invited people to be in attendence at a number of different speeches.

The party stated that the attendees would have their temperature taken and that social distancing guidelines would be follow. That has not come to pass. On Thursday night, Rachel Maddow blasted Mike Pence for speaking to a group of largely mask-less supporters.

The MSNBC host began, “I feel concerned for what is happening here especially after what happened at the Tulsa rally and other Trump events when they have gone out of their way to try to portray, show a visual image of a world and a country that’s gotten past the Covid threat when we really haven’t.”

Maddow continued, “I know politically why they want to do that, but this is potentially a dangerous situation even in an outdoor setting for all of these elderly veterans tonight. It is also particularly striking against the backdrop of Mike Pence, who led the coronavirus task force, maybe still does if it still exists, talking about how an untold number of American lives were saved by President Trump’s actions.”

The political pundit closed her remarks, saying, “It’s unnerving at a health level. It feels like we’re watching Chronicles of a Death Foretold here.”
