The mainstream media went into full panic mode when Vice President Mike Pence did not wear a mask to the Mayo clinic.
This was the media’s focus while the Democrat Governor of Minnesota heaped praise on the work done by Vice President Pence, President Trump, and the Trump administration.
According to The Daily Caller:
Critics immediately went after Pence for not wearing a mask – but meanwhile, hardly any of them reported on Democratic Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz praising Pence and the Trump administration during that trip.
“I can convey to you that the vice president [Pence] spends plenty of hours on the telephone with governors each seven days, he’s there to pick up the telephone when we connect with,” Walz said according to ABC 14 News. “I want to thank you and the president.”
Walz continued on to praise the Mayo Clinic as well.
Most in the media ignored this, instead pointing out that Pence did not wear a mask to the clinic. The Mayo Clinic deleted a tweet that claimed Pence’s office was aware of the mask policy before arriving.
Most outlets ignored the praise of the governor and instead focused on the mask issue. Even though masks are meant to keep carriers from spreading the virus and Pence is tested regularly for the virus and is negative.
