Sanders Says Appointment of Pence to Head Virus Task Force is “Disgusting”

Current Democrat frontrunner, Bernie Sanders has been all over the airwaves ahead of the Super Tuesday primaries saying that the appointment of Vice President Mike Pence to head up the coronavirus task force was a huge mistake and “disgusting.”

Sanders attacked President Trump for appointing Vice President Mike Pence to lead the government’s response to the threat of the COVID-19 virus.

“Trump’s plan for the coronavirus so far,” the Vermont senator said. “Cut winter heating assistance for the poor. Have VP Pence, who wanted to ‘pray away’ HIV epidemic, oversee the response. Let ex-pharma lobbyist Alex Azar refuse to guarantee affordable vaccines to all.”

Sanders went on to call Trump’s response to the crisis “disgusting.”

Pence was the governor of Indiana during the 2015 HIV outbreak in Scott County that led to more than 200 cases. He was asked about the need for a needle-exchange program and responded, “I’m going to go home and pray on it.”

Pence waited two months before calling the 2015 outbreak a public health emergency, a move that was widely criticized at the time.

“I don’t believe effective anti-drug policy involves handing out drug paraphernalia,” Pence told the Indianapolis Star that year.

He eventually allowed a 30-day needle exchange program to combat the outbreak.

But, in reality, Trump, Pence and the entire administration are well-prepared for the likely increase in cases here in the US. The president recently assured the public on that the federal government is prepared to contain the virus.

“In recent days, the White House met with over 40 state, county, and city health officials from over 30 states and territories to discuss how to respond to the potential threat of the coronavirus,” Pence said at the White House news conference.

    I think it would be best to ship Bernie over to China city where it all began so he can snoop around, meet the patients, have lots of food, drinks lots of water for about 3 weeks. That will make him a stone, cold genius on the subject.

    Sanders would have appointed Kim Jung Uhn, Putin or even Jeffre Dahmer(if still alive). Communist Bernie should not be talking about the current Administration that is 10x more intelligent than Sanders ever could be!!!

    Giving needles to druggies is tantamount to giving dynamite to pyromaniac. Isn’t this enabling? Maybe they should have acknowledged the drug epidemic back then. As for Bernie, doesn’t China have government run health care? Hows that working out? Vote Trump/Pence 2020! Keep America Great.

    The job of a Vice President is to assist the President. Pence is the head of the committee of experts to keep the President informed of the findings and there recommendations to move forward. Trump depends on all of the Administration’s committees input as have other past Presidents.

    Bernie Sanders is the disgrace to this country. He is nothing. He has done nothing constructive. He will continue to be nothing. His accomplishments amount to a zero sum. Maybe he and Pelosi should have an affair. Oh no… they already have and produced AOC.

    Sanders is the stupides individual you can imagine. He is an old fool and should be put away where he can’t do any harm. If you are a Democratic and thinking of voting for Sanders over Biden,you are as stupid as he is!

    The disgusting one is Bernie! This old depraved SOB hasn’t a clue about the virus and to mock our VP or his faith when a huge portion of the US is Christian shows how stupid the rattle brain actually is! I don’t blame the DNC for wanting a mindless Biden over this old commie creep! As for Bernie voters they need to go back to college and change courses before the commie professors really turn their minds o trash. Socialism, no matter what Bernie wants to call it, is a failure. Bernie, as Judge Judy says, has never done anything meaningful in the last thirty years and half of it was to name two post offices. The guy is a fraud. He is having to protect his wife from fraud charges and would never be able to lead a nation like America! Dems need to get wise and stop pushing this fool or the other either.

    Here we go with cheap shots from the rats, old bernie can’t help himself just like sleepy creepy biden. To me this is overkill as other things are more deadly than this virus. Bad drives kill more every day. Mobsters with illegal guns, illegals who drink and drive, I could go on but then someone would come along and try to dispute it.

    Someone with Sanders’ background should never allow the word disgusting to come from his mouth-the reason, if you look up “disgusting” in the dictionary you will see a picture of Bernie Sanders. He’s a man who sponged off of government and friends until he was forty. At that time, he got his first job-in government. He has been in government ever since and has never accomplished anything. Today his only idea ever, is to destroy the country and make it a socialist hell hole (which he would run, of course). I wouldn’t hire him to clean up the doggy doo from my back yard and he wants to be king. Now, that’s disgusting!

    Bernie Junior High Sanders does NOT understand what he is saying, He Said”“Trump’s plan for the coronavirus so far,” the Vermont senator said. “Cut winter heating assistance for the poor. Have VP Pence, who wanted to ‘pray away’ HIV epidemic, oversee the response. Let ex-pharma lobbyist Alex Azar refuse to guarantee affordable vaccines to all” which is a total bold face lie. Vice President Mike Pence and the Medical experts know what they are doing. This has NOTHING to do with heating assistance for the poor.

    Sanders is nothing more than an opportunist. Always pointing fingers without rational solutions. This old has been doesn’t know that when he points a finger he has 3 pointing back at him.
