Things got pretty loud at the White House COVID-19 task force briefing yesterday.
Vice President Mike Pence gave a 90-minute briefing about the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and gave good news about the status of vaccines like Moderna and Pfizer that are close to being distributed.
Mike Pence concluded his briefing without answering any questions and the press absolutely went crazy.
As Pence walked off the stage a slew of reporters started shouting and standing up at the Vice President.
The press room looked like an absolute zoo.

Yahoo News covered the story, see what they had to share:
Vice President Mike Pence declined to take questions after an hour-plus coronavirus task force briefing, the first in months, as reporters screamed queries at him as he left the lectern.
Jon Karl, ABC News’ chief White House correspondent, stood up in the front row as Pence left and said, “What is going on?” Another person was heard shouting, “You are all undermining the democratic election.”
Hunter Walker, White House correspondent for Yahoo News, wrote on Twitter that he “stood up and asked as loudly as I could why the are refusing to work with Biden when lives are at stake. I asked why they’re undermining our democracy. I pointed out every person on stage was complicit. I am sorry I couldn’t get you all answers.”
This was shameful behavior by the press. https://t.co/SMK8HJC8Rs

The Daily Mail covered Pence’s briefing too:
Vice President Mike Pence brought back the coronavirus taskforce briefing Thursday – complete with an appearance by Dr. Anthony Fauci – but refused to take reporters’ questions as President Donald Trump refuses to concede the election.
Pence – and Fauci too – were upbeat about the vaccine news, with the vice president quoting Trump saying, ‘We are rounding the corner to the day we have a vaccine for the American people.’
‘We want to encourage every American to continue to do your part. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Wear a mask when social distancing is impossible,’ Pence continued. ‘Put the health of your family and the health of your neighbors and the people in your community first.’
The press has spent the last 8 months trying to smear President Trump and his response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Why should the Vice President spend time answering questions from people who are just trying to refute his answers?
