Vice President Mike Pence visited healthcare workers and patients at the Mayo Clinic on Tuesday, and unlike all of the professionals in the building, Pence refused to wear a protective face mask.

And his excuse for not wearing a mask was about as stupid as you would expect. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
