Pence RNC crowd shirks masks weeks after he said they help slow spread

Those gathered to watch Mike Pence’s Republican National Convention speech largely shirked wearing face masks despite the vice president having touted how they slow the spread of coronavirus just weeks ago…

While they sat during his speech, spaced apart, attendees were seen shoulder-to-shoulder as they mingled and posed for photos afterwards.

The VP was seen shaking hands with one attendee and fist bumping another. He was not wearing a mask himself as he greeted members of the crowd.
