Sick Humor

Does anyone else think that the reason Donald Trump is putting Mike Pence in charge of combatting the coronavirus outbreak is so that Pence can be blamed and thrown under the bus when the outbreak becomes a pandemic?

UPDATE: According to a report in the NY Times, Vice President Mike Pence was picked to lead the federal government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak because President Trump said he didn’t “have anything else to do”.

    Thanks Eva. Here’s the link for the article —

    Does this mean that Trump not only wants to throw Pence under the bus, but wants him to contract the coronavirus? Maybe even die? That really is sick.

    Also note this claim that Trump plans to dump Pence and replace him with Nikki Haley —

    I knew about the Nikki Halley thing. You are the one who led us to PoliticalWire which I check all day. I also go to your Web Site at times and check on your trips. The image of you on stilts stays in my brain. 🙂

    Here is a tidbit about my life: I lived in Western New York since 1973. On this block a couple married. Their oldest son now lives in Delaware where I grew up and is (or was) head of the DNC for Delaware. His father (son of a Nazi from Germany) never stops watching Fox News. And I who grew up in Delaware lived from age 8-19 at 927 Centre Road, Wilminton. A block that was farms and woods when we lived there. My first grade classmate was an only child. I would walk to his house and he to mine through the woods. I guess he sold out the land and house as it is all housing now. And that is where Joe and Jill Biden live now with their secret service. Joe was a year ahead of me at U of Del. I have never met him and won’t because I don’t travel. (except vicariously, if you only knew how long I spent with each picture you took in your travels) Behind the house on Centre Road was a big barn. After we moved someone converted it into a house, and Michael Spinks bought it, brother to Leon. Michael still lives there. So bring up your google earth.

    Would Nikki Halley want to be Trumpf’s VP? I was under the impression that had she been in the Senate she might have voted against her party. I think Romney would be a wonderful pick for VP, then Trump would have his revenge by destroying Romney’s career.
