Like President Donald Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence would rather pretend that the coronavirus is going away even though the pandemic is still very much raging on and the death is only getting higher.

Nearly 120,000 Americans have died from the virus in the last three and a half months, with increases in cases occurring primarily in red states that reopened too early to appease Trump.

On Tuesday, Pence proclaimed in an op-ed that America is winning the fight against the pandemic among a series of other false claims that will end up getting people killed if they don’t continue to take this virus seriously and take all the precautions possible to protect themselves.

That’s why CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta took to Twitter to fact-check Pence thoroughly.

Gupta also took aim at Pence for claiming that the increase in cases is because of increased testing, similar to Trump’s claim that there would be no cases if there were no testing.

Gupta then ripped Pence for not demanding more testing, and pointed out that instead of a second wave, the United States is still embroiled in the first wave of the virus.

Gupta went on to slam Pence’s claim that Trump has embraced social distancing guidelines.

Clearly, Pence is full of crap and his lies about coronavirus are going to make things worse. That’s why Americans should listen to health professionals like Gupta instead of anyone in the White House when it comes to the coronavirus.
