Vice President Mike Pence just stepped down. He can’t do it and millions of people are stunned. No one expected this to happen with less than a week until the crucial November election.
“Vice President Mike Pence won’t preside over Monday’s Senate vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett,” according to the Washington Examiner. Pence’s chief of staff, among others, “tested positive for COVID-19.”
Of course, by the time of this article, Barrett has officially been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg after a bruising battle in the court of public opinion (and on the Senate floor) over her nomination.
But the so-called “controversy” surrounding Pence possibly being exposed to the virus came from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He said Pence’s presence in the Senate Chamber “would be a violation of common decency.”
Sorry, Chuck, but your presence in the U.S. Senate for the last 20 years has been a violation of commonsense. It is time for you to be replaced by someone who will represent all of New York, not just the liberal stronghold of New York City.
Pence himself, of course, is fine. He never caught the coronavirus and has continued to actively campaign around the country. Democrats are going to be shocked when the Trump-Pence ticket pull off another historic upset on November 3.
