Democrats urge Pence to not preside over Barrett vote due to coronavirus cases

Senate Dems have asked VP Mike Pence to stay away from presiding over Monday’s vote to confirm Judge Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court as several of his aides have tested positive for COVID-19. ’Not only would your presence...be a clear violation of CDC guidelines, but it would also be a violation of common decency and courtesy,’ Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer wrote in a letter to Pence.

I thought social distancing and masks worked? Can't really have it both ways. If he tests negative, what's the problem? I mean aside from the purely political one this "concern" is clearly based on.

They are urging him for political theatre. They know they cannot stop it and Vice President Pence doesn't need to break a tie.

Feel free not to show up for the vote, Chuck. Your presence at the vote isn't needed.

LOL, such crybaby theatrics from the Democrats. There is no concern from them for this, after all, they claim masks will protect them.

So now anyone who knows someone who has it must quarantine? Even with a negative test? What happened to 'following the science'? What happened to masks and social distancing? Was that only for us peasants? Besides, I thought they were boycotting the vote. Did they chnge their minds after Pence's people got diagnosed? pathetically obvious attempts to drag out the process? They haven't exactly been cooperative when they had power. Remember, these are the same people that finalized Obamacare on Christmas Eve.

Please, please. Do not fulfill your constitutional obligations!! The Senate did not consent for Mr. Garland. They did do for Mrs Barrett. since we can't win an election can't we still control everything anyways? Nope.

Of course they did. Advise thousands of people to not gather in large riot groups without any social distancing? No, don't be silly. But tell the one man that needs to preside despite testing negative for COVID? Of course, he's killing people if he shows.
