Stephen Colbert Compares Mike Pence’s Non-Answer About Rally Safety To Chlamydia

President Donald Trump’s upcoming campaign rally at an arena in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is nothing to sneeze at.

Even Trump-loving Fox News urged caution. Colbert showed a clip of “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy suggesting to Vice President Mike Pence that the event be moved to an outdoor location “in the interest of public safety.”

“You raise a good point,” Pence replied. “What I can tell you is it’s all a work in progress.”

“That is not reassuring,” the host said. “It’s like you’re about to have unprotected sex and you say to your partner, ‘Wait, don’t you have chlamydia?’ And they say, ’Well, darling, you raise a good point. What I can tell you it’s all a work in progress.’”

Pence’s vague answer to safety concerns should come as no surprise. He also declared this week that Oklahoma had “flattened the curve.” In fact, the state logged a record high in daily COVID-19 cases just two days earlier.
