Mike Pence spearheads solution for the cornoavirus crisis

(Tweet) Seeing Mike Pence without a mask at the Mayo Clinic, while every other human in the room wore one, and he was WARNED about the policy, tells you everything you need to know about WHY we have 1 million cases and over 57,000 dead.

New York Times: Mr. Pence defended his own behavior: “As vice president of the United States, I’m tested for the coronavirus on a regular basis, and everyone who is around me is tested for the coronavirus,” he told reporters.

By George, I think he's got it!

Because he and those around him are tested regularly, Pence can walk around with full confidence that he will definitely not infect anyone else and that they probably won't infect him. Suppose that could be elevated to occurring nationally, or even globally? Test everyone in the U.S., isolate the infected, and turn the uninfected loose to retake the streets, re-open the country, and ignite herd immunity. If only that was possible without a lot of cost, effort, or invasive swab sampling!

It's started happening in New Jersey: https://yourhhrsnews.com/nj-mass-covid-test

You've done it, Pence! Mission -- and perhaps a second term -- accomplished, especially if Trump needs to be, ah, "replaced" ahead of schedule!

(Pence) also wanted to look workers and researchers “in the eye and say thank you,” he said, although surgical masks do not cover eyes.

Well, let's take it one step at a time...
