VP Pence Is ‘Maintaining Some Distance’ From President Trump ‘For The Immediate Future’ Amid Concerns Over Coronavirus

Vice President Mike Pence is social distancing from President Trump “for the immediate future” after one of his top aides tested positive for COVID-19.

Katie Miller, a spokeswoman for Pence, tested positive for the virus on Friday. A senior administration official added that Pence would be “maintaining some distance for the immediate future” based on consultation and medical advice received from the White House medical unit.

President Trump spoke on Monday and stated that he hasn’t seen the vice president since it was confirmed that Miller had the coronavirus. Pence was not in attendance at the president’s daily briefing in the Rose Garden, nor did he attend a meeting that was held at the White House on Saturday.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The White House staff received a Monday memo directing “everyone who enters the West Wing to wear a mask or facial covering.”

The vice president’s intention to keep a safe distance from the president follows weekend reports that the White House had not made plans to keep them separated.

Pence is scheduled to hold a meeting of the coronavirus task force on Tuesday, the senior official told the Washington Examiner. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allow for essential workers exposed to an infected person to return to work after a negative test. Pence has repeatedly tested negative since learning of Miller’s infection.

Katie Miller is married to another top aide to the president, Stephen Miller, who according to reports spends quite a bit of time with Trump, his daughter Ivanka, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

After news of Miller’s testing positive for the illness, many of the health experts currently working at the White House immediately went into self-quarantine, including Dr. Anthony Fauci among others.

Here’s to hoping Pence and Trump both remain safe and healthy so they can lead our nation at a time when we need their strong leadership the most.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
