The First Amendment gives the American people the right to speak freely about their own government. It doesn’t give the President and the Vice President the right to hold reckless and dangerous rallies that ignore public health guidelines. Wearing a mask is not a violation of the First Amendment. Social distancing is not a violating of the First Amendment.

The second half of Pence’s answer contained more truth. Trump and Pence are holding rallies because they are worried about the election. Trump and Pence and currently losing to Joe Biden, so they are risking public health and spreading a virus during a pandemic because they are more concerned with votes than American lives.

Biden has Trump so scared that he is holding rallies is a desperate gambit to win reelection.
