Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence have both tested negative for coronavirus, his spokeswoman announced Saturday evening.
“Pleased to report that the COVID-19 test results came back negative for both Vice President @Mike_Pence and Second Lady @KarenPence,” said Katie Miller, the press secretary for the vice president, via her Twitter account.
Pence had said he and his wife would be tested Saturday afternoon after a staff member of his office had tested positive for coronavirus.
“Given the unique position that I have as vice president and as the leader of the White House coronavirus task force, both I and my wife will be tested for the coronavirus later this afternoon,” Pence said during a news conference at the White House.
His office announced Friday that one of its members tested positive for the coronavirus — the closest confirmed case to Pence that is publicly known.
Once again I have very little trust in anything this administration says publicly, but if Pence is positive it’s not like they can hide that for very long.
So he probably isn’t.
I need to reiterate that I do not want these terrible people to die due to this terrible disease that is only getting worse due to their terrible response.
Sure it would be a type of poetic justice if they did, but it is wrong to wish that harm befall others so I don’t want that to happen.
