Former Pence staffer - Trump once said maybe the coronavirus was a good thing because he wouldn't have to shake hands 'with these disgusting people'



Olivia Troye, former homeland security, counterterrorism and coronavirus adviser to VP Mike Pence, just came out with a video announcing that she is voting for Joe Biden and why.

To put it succinctly, girlfriend isn't simply spilling the tea. She is throwing it.  Troye said that her decision to vote for Biden came from seeing firsthand Trump's "disregard for human life." Central to that disregard, Troye claimed, is how Trump didn't take the pandemic serious and the following about the people he met.

Troye also condemned Trump in a video released by the group Republican Voters Against Trump, saying Trump once mused that the coronavirus was a good thing because he wouldn’t have to shake hands with as many people.“I don’t like shaking hands with people,” Troye recalled the president saying. “I don’t have to shake hands with these disgusting people.”

 Troye says in the video that she’s a lifelong Republican but would “come home at night and look myself in the mirror and say, ‘Are you really making a difference?’” “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,” she concluded. Troye joins several other Trump administration officials to speak out against the president ahead of the election, including former national security adviser John Bolton and former defense secretary Jim Mattis. 

 The White House and Pence’s office both dismissed Troye as someone who was miffed over her ouster. She is “disgruntled that her detail was cut short because she was no longer capable of keeping up with her day-to-day duties,” Lt. General Keith Kellogg, Pence’s national security adviser, told the Post. But Troye told the Post she was was deeply involved in the coronavirus task force and helped organize and attend “every single meeting” it held from February until July.

Don't be blase or nonchalant about this. It's a huge crack in Trump's dome.
