Rockstar Bono of U2 met with Vice President Mike Pence this weekend to talk about the U.S.’s AIDS assistance in Africa while the two attended the Munich Security Conference.
Bono praised Pence for supporting bills in Congress that would provide medications to AIDS-stricken nations.

You would think this would please AIDS activists — but not so fast!
The hell is wrong with Bono? Pence defunded AIDS treatment in his state & ended up with one of the highest HIV rates in the developed world. https://t.co/Ynwmcr0601
