    The Post reports, "Moments after President Trump announced that Vice President Pence will take over the White House’s coronavirus task force, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that a northern California person has contracted the coronavirus without traveling outside the United States or coming in contact with another patient known to have the infection — the first sign that the disease may be spreading within a local community."

    That is so typical of Trump. Instead of selecting a doctor to be in charge of a surging pandemic, he appoints his very own political hack, and one of the most incompetent, obsequious politicians in Washington. Just the kind of man Trump wanted, a loyal lapdog.

    Who can believe it? The Stable Genius, in his wisdom takes charge with a blunted sword. What valiant warrior could replace our dynamic Vice President as he leads us to battle -- a virus. Wall Street has been comforted. The futures are only off 250. It should be an interesting week.

    Well, duh. The Coronavirus is a political issue not a health issue. It’s a re-election threat. So it’s a DemoCRAT conspiracy and there’s nothing too see here.

    Better than Brownie, the Arabian Horse Association guy, who GWB put in charge of the Katrina recovery effort -- but only marginally.

    While 3 states are still spending millions of taxpayer dollars to clean up the contaminated super fund sites left behind by the former Pence families bankrupt gasoline stations and oil sales businesses in Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois. Over $20 Million already spent and some of the sites are still poisoning peoples drinking water wells.Lots of money still needed to finish cleaning up their mess.

    Meh, Trump has good instincts. Things will be just fine. BTW, when is the WW3 with Iran going to happen?

    On what basis do you claim Mike Pence is "incompetent"?

    Appointing someone who is not an advocate of vaccines. That looks like a good move!

    How do you know Pence isn’t selecting a doctor to be in charge of a surging pandemic?

    Just another of the thousand of tweets that Trump has posted over the years in complete contradiction to his actions as president.
    Of course Trump fans will, as usual, see no problem with the moral turpitude of this man.

    PS have no problem w Pence heading task force.

    Dude's it is a multiagency task force. If this gets out of control you need some to operate as a clearing house for info sharing between these different agency.

    Remember 9/11 largely happened because various intelligence agencies did not or could not share information so no one had the whole picture until after the buildings fell.

    If he would have told Ben Carson to do it you'd complain about that.

    Didn’t Biden just brag about how he was in charge of Obama Ebola task force? The one that latest 3 years?

    Based on last evening's press conference it looks like Pence will act as the government agency coordinator in response to a team of expert researchers and physicians needs. Having Pence act as a facilitator is a good move.

    Looks like the White House is getting its act together.

    Yep, a believer in intelligent design in charge of the response to a virus outbreak. What could possibly go wrong.
