'Utterly irresponsible' to put Mike Pence in charge of coronavirus response, says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The New York representative was among many who criticised the appointment of the vice president to the task force tackling the outbreak.

Pence was accused of reacting slowly to the spread of HIV i n Scott Country in 2015 and when presented with the idea of a needle exchange to slow the infection rate, he responded by saying,"I'm going to go home and pray on it." The HIV outbreak in the state was cited by several people on social media as a reason which should disqualify the vice president from heading the U.S. coronavirus response. Yale epidemiologist Gregg Gonsalves, who investigated links between the HIV outbreak in the state to Pence's role as governor, tweeted,"This is a man that totally botched HIV outbreak in Indiana. This is not a good idea and speaks to a lack of seriousness by the @WhiteHouse." Pence's HIV Response in Indiana Resurfaces After Coronavirus Announcement Read more Human Rights Campaign rapid response press secretary Charlotte Clymer tweeted to her 280,000 followers,"Here's the kicker about Mike Pence enabling the worst HIV outbreak in the history of Indiana: it was all because he wanted to shut down Planned Parenthood, which were leading HIV testing centers in the state. Mike Pence's distrust of women led to an HIV outbreak. No joke." U.S. senator for Hawaii Brian Schatz tweeted,"Mike Pence is for conversion therapy. Mike Pence said smoking didn't cause cancer," referring to an op-ed he wrote two decades ago unearthed by Buzzfeed."Mike Pence doesn't believe climate science. Mike Pence questioned whether or not condoms worked. So." Newsweek has contacted the White House for a response to the criticisms of Pence's appointment. At Wednesday's news conference, Trump was confident that the U.S. would deal with the coronavirus insisting that the risk to Americans"remains very low." "This will end. You don't want to see panic because there's no reason to be panicked," Trump said. Read more: Newsweek

And, AOC, your expertise — in anything?!? He is going to pray to defeat the virus lol Mike is Trump's scapegoat. Sucks to be you Mike... VP MikePence is every bit as qualified to coordinate our national corona virus response as realDonaldTrump is to be president. Which means we are in serious trouble. TrumpIsAnIdiot coronavirus coronavirususa VoteBlueNoMatterWho VoteBlue2020

She is uneducated, inexperienced, emotionally unstable, and being propted up from behind. Big question today is WHO blocked the President's speech on the Corona virus from airing? Fox news carried it, but at about 10 minutes into his talk it was abruptly cut off. Who did it? Put AOC in in charge! He will just cover up things. He will never be honest with us. This is why you don't vote for people like Trump for president. Because when the real crisis comes it's a disaster for all. Trump handling a possible pandemic? Obama in crisis, cool and scientific. Trump, BOOM!

ChloePolitiCat Yes I totally agree! Classic Trump: Suppress and control the facts/truth while setting up Mike to take the fall so he can dump him as VP candidate. Mike says lets all pray that this goes away , if not we are fu***ed coronavirus conversion therapy

Mike Pence Clearly Went To Ash Wednesday Services Dozens Of TimesAll the latest politics coverage from The Onion, America's finest news source. Later This Evening, His Evangelical Fundamentalist Church Will Have A Meet and Greet In The Lenten Flagellation Room. Only a dozen? He calls that faith? PhillipEnglish Second coming of Chance the Gardner.......

AOC is now in charge of national health. we're all set now. Thinking is difficult, that's why most people judge. She's not wrong. On THIS. This is pretty smart He’s the VP, they really do nothing Now He’ll manage the effort and with his power clear obstacles, quickly approve what needs it etc... But when you have tds everything is Orange Man bad coronavirus COVID2019

Says who? Yep. So surprised it wasn’t Paula White. She could pray it away ! Sure dovetails nicely with this Administration, doesn't it? Trump knows he screwed up by cutting the pandemic response team and it is a no win situation, so let’s set Pence up for the fall Who? Blah blah blah ..... DNC Propaganda Machine.....🤢

Yes let’s use electric shock therapy on the virus right Mike? ⚡️ We fucked Finna solve it with the power of Christ or some shit

Aoc is nuts. It's more than irresponsible, it's strategic. I have big concerns on how/where this virus has been spread. Concerned it's ploy by the Enemy to take out certain people, lessen population? To keep hidden, put a loyalist in charge. This and willingness to spread drugs make zombies We should put someone with less power in charge.

It’s putting a fox in charge of the chicken coop 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂AOC on responsibilty😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 He’s in charge of it, he not the only one on the team. Even AOC could “lead” a team of experts. No brainer. He needed a top fall guy BusManure Pence and AOC aren’t qualified for their jobs CDC issues an immediate press release stating conversion therapy is not a valid treatment for patients with Coronavirus

Trump puts Mike Pence in charge of response to coronavirus, says US risk 'remains very low'President Trump says that the risk to the American people from the deadly coronavirus “remains very low.” “We’re ready to adapt and we’re ready to do whatever we have to as the disease spreads, if it spreads.” About to become high Why? And what does the CDC say?

Broke: Pray the gay away Joke: Pray the humanity away They're mad because he was against Planned Parenthood and supported conversion therapy for sodomites. AOC TrumpsterFire can we really expect anything better from this administration coronavirus COVID19 At least Trump coordinated his tie and eye bags.

It is AOC Nobody takes her seriously... Well anyone with half a brain 😜 Can she spell it though? This is madness Pence couldn’t even handle the HIV outbreak in his state Pence being thrown... But he believes in GOD ... won't GOD help? ...

Vice President Mike Pence will lead coronavirus teamEurope's biggest coronavirus outbreak is in Italy, where more than 320 have been infected, while Iran has reported more than 90 cases and 15 deaths. Follow here for live updates.\n That's one way to get VP out of his way, so that IvankaTrump can be his running mate in the fall. Set Pence up for a huge fail, force him to resign come April/May. Boom. Here comes Nepotism Barbie to the rescue. We’re all going to die 🤦🏻‍♀️ That sounds like an excuse for some big government and privacy violations... I’m wary

it was be better to transfert a psychiatric clinic in to the W.H. I hate that we keep quoting AOC. Sure she's a great new breeze in the party...but come on now... this just seems like more of the MSM pish to 'wake things up'. That said, it makes me want to go to sleep... Don't worry, Coronavirus love MoronAVirus! Trump will fix this (for himself & his GOP cronies!)

Probably, Mike Pence's response to the 'Coronavirus' 'I'm going to go home and 'Pray on It'? Mobilise evangelical prayers & the virus will dissipate. Hallelujah. She’s right. He oversaw the largest post 80’s AIDS crisis HIV outbreak as Governor of Indiana. Newsweek: Utterly irresponsible' to put Mike Pence in charge of coronavirus response, says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: That's a degrading comment from a law-maker needs to look in the mirror ?

Putting the man who doesn't believe in science in charge of something involving science what could possibly go wrong. The blind leading the blind Pence will go after the demons causing this virius....

Trump Announces Mike Pence Will Lead the White House’s Coronavirus ResponseAnnouncing that Mike Pence would lead the administration's coronavirus response, Trump said that 'he’s got a certain talent for this.' But Pence does not have a talent for public health issues: As late as 2000, he wrote that “smoking does not kill.” Absolute horseshit... well good luck USA... With prayer Trump's utter ignorance is boundless. Pence said, 'I know full well the importance of presidential leadership... in responding to the potential threat of dangerous infectious diseases,' Hmm... remind me who was President during the MRSA outbreak in IN, again. 🤔🤣

That’s because they want to control the news and facts and not report the truth. He doesn’t want it to jeopardize his re-election! Textbook Trump Because she’s right Like that dimwit little girl knows best. Pence knows he can defeat the coronavirus, he just needs to find the right prayer.

Mike Bloomberg Is Running His Campaign Like a Money-Gorged Tech CompanyMike Bloomberg’s campaign features all of the spending-to-success largesse and compromised morality of a Silicon Valley megacorporation, while lacking any of its charm. bafeldman writes bafeldman Cannot beat an incumbent candidate for the presidency; article after article during Obama 2012 - all vanished. Good news for this tech crew is they have a giant budget, win or lose. And they already lost.
