Even Meghan McCain Thinks It’s a Bad Idea for Pence to Lead the Coronavirus Response

Conservative View co-host Meghan McCain on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump’s decision to name Vice-President Mike Pence as the leader of the administration’s coronavirus response, specifically highlighting Pence’s terrible record of handling an HIV outbreak as Indiana governor.
