Earlier, Mother went on Fox ‘News’ and made up some crap that Pastor Pence did not find out about Mayo Clinic mask policy until after visit. But, that’s not what really occurred.
Steve Herman, who covers the White House for Voice of America, suggested that there was more to the story after Karen Pence’s interview.
Now Pastor Pence’s office has threatened to retaliate against him because he revealed that Pence’s office had told journalists they would need masks for Pence’s visit to the Mayo Clinic — a requirement Pence himself did not follow.
The tweet apparently enraged Pence’s staff, which told Herman that he had violated the off-the-record terms of a planning memo that had been sent to him and other reporters in advance of Pence’s trip.
Herman said he was notified by the White House Correspondents’ Association that Pence’s office had banned him from further travel on Air Force Two, although a spokesperson in Pence’s office later told VOA managers than any punishment was still under discussion, pending an apology from Herman or VOA.
