Former Vice President Mike Pence made his first national news in months to blow up President Joe Biden’s recently announced vaccine mandates and “patience wearing thin” comment, which Pence considered unpresidential and non-American.
Pence took particular issue with Biden’s tone in his Thursday speech, in which the Democrat told the Americans that they were still not inoculated against Covid-19, that his administration’s patience with them was “Wearing thin.”
“To get the President of the United States to say that he has been patient, but his patience is thin, that’s not how the American people expect to be spoken to by our elected leaders,” Pence said Friday on ‘Fox & Friends’.
The bid’s plan forces a vaccination mandate for most federal workers as well as companies that perform contract work with the government. Companies with more than 100 employees need a vaccinated workforce or covid-19 negative tests in their place unless they want to be exposed to potentially thousands of dollars in fines.
The bite vaccine plan, Pence said, is “Unlike anything I’ve ever heard from an American president.”
Many have already vowed to oppose it, from representatives like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to private companies like the conservative news media Daily Wire.
Biden argued in his statement Thursday that his plan was “Not about freedom or personal choice.”
Pence, who led the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force during the Trump administration’s fight with the pandemic, disagreed.
“It’s exactly about freedom,” he said, adding that Biden and other elected officials “scolded” the American public “Not the American way – and I expect the response they’ll get across the country will prove it.”
Pence’s own strategy for promoting vaccines would be to “Lead by example” referring to his own brilliance on television in December with his wife and encouraging others to be vaccinated as they have done.
He has been listed as a potential presidential candidate in 2024 for the Republican Party, and his Friday-torn Fox coincides with the release of ‘American Freedom’, a new podcast that seems primarily aimed at criticizing Biden.
In the first episode, a 9/11 tribute, Pence says he will continue to discuss “The failed leadership of the Biden administration, the crisis on our southern border, [and] the crime wave in our cities, ” as well “disastrous” Afghanistan withdrawal, and ways to “Preserving our freedom” during the corona pandemic.
