Pence Confidant Betrays Trump With Stunning News

A former adviser to Vice President Mike Pence who served on the coronavirus task force claims President Trump once said coronavirus might be a good thing because he wouldn’t have to shake hands with “disgusting people.”

Olivia Troye left Pence’s team in August, but before that worked as Homeland Security, counterterrorism and coronavirus adviser for him for two years. She said that by mid-February the White House knew COVID-19 would become a pandemic.

In an ad by Republican Voters against Trump, Troye said Trump remarked in a coronavirus task force meeting: “Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing. I don’t like shaking hands with people. I don’t have to shake hands with these disgusting people.”

“I have been a Republican my entire life,” she said. “I am voting for Joe Biden because I truly believe we are at a time of constitutional crisis. At this point it’s country over party.”

I wonder how much money she was paid to say this about Pres. Trump.

Taken out of context, “So he didn’t have to shake Pelosi’s, Schumer, Schiff’s etc hand”…………

Not that Trump’s words are always perfect but it is quite certain that all the Trump haters feel it is OK to create stories that put the president in a bad light. The government is saturated with “swamp creatures” and that is exactly why Donald Trump was elected in the first place.

Yeah right. I’ve seen and watched trump in person and he shakes more hands over and over. If that statement is true, I bet it was an inside joke and talking about himself. He shakes more hands with so many people. Watch him with troops. It’s fun to watch.

So she’s taking communism over Trump. Communist take everything you own. I know I’ve been to Russia they don’t own anything.

Amazing…Every time Trump tells one of his jokes…there are those who of a different character appear shocked with his comments of jester…”Oh how awful Trump said that about shaking hands with people he doesn’t like”…”I need tell CNN the terrible thing he just said”…Such people can’t seem to be able to differentiate a joke from a statement of absolute seriousness…Perhaps the political correctness “woke” has overtaken their ability to laugh at something funny.

I do not believe she’s “been a Republican” all her life. There is a constitutional crisis and it’s caused by the left-wing communists.

Yeah, like we would believe anything a person who is voting for Biden says. Olivia, you may want to get tested for a brain tumor.

It sure seems like even the republicans are loosing money from under the table bribes with Trump in office so they want him out.

Ms. Troye is using a poor remark about shaking hands to qualify her change to the Democrat Party and then claiming that she prefers a president that agrees with Constitutional Law? How disgusting and irrational is this? President Trump is the epitome of Constitutional Law. Who cares that he doesn’t like to shake hands with everyone–most of us don’t.

This was too general a comment to influence the election. The woman is foolish for making herself unwise for stating it. Even if true Harris/ Biden will work to destroy the USA while Trump/Pence are attempting to MAGA.

Troye is a liar and a disgrace to women.

Another one of those stories that can’t be confirmed. Maybe she’ll also come out and say she had a sordid affair with the president as well.
