House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for delaying the passage of additional stimulus funding amid the coronavirus pandemic and gave President Donald Trump an “F” for his handling of the crisis, during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.

“Mitch McConnell likes to say we delayed the bill, no, he delayed the bill. Two weeks ago, he came to the floor and said this is all we’re doing just the 250. Democrats were reunited in the House and Senate,” Pelosi said. “The Senate Democrats went to the floor and said no, no to that, we have a better idea about hospitals and testing and more funds for all of the businesses, the lower shall we say unbankable small businesses.”

She continued, “So we were very pleased that he finally came around to the fact that we had to go forward with this. So he was the one wasting time. I say that because I keep hearing him say we delayed, no, he delayed. But here we are and we’re ready to go on to the next bill and help our heroes.”

Senate Republicans and Democrats passed a bill to provide an additional $500 billion to the CARES Act. The bill allocates over $322 billion for the Payment Protection Program that ran out of funding last week. It also gives $60 billion to small businesses, $75 billion to hospitals, and $25 billion to ramping up coronavirus testing.

Pelosi added, “There’s a boy scout saying ‘proper preparedness prevents poor performance.’ Well, that was exactly why the President gets an ‘F.’ He was not properly prepared, not with the truth, with the facts, or the admission of what was happening in our country. Delay, whatever, delay, denial, death, instead we’d like to see him insist on the truth and we must insist on the truth with him.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell applauded the bipartisan agreement on the Senate floor Tuesday, however, he said, “It’s unfortunate that it took our Democratic colleagues 12 days to agree to a deal that contains essentially nothing that Republicans every opposed.”

McConnell added, “In my view, it’s indefensible that Main Street small businesses and their workers had their assistance cut off for partisan leverage. That was the word of choice for one leading House Democrat “leverage.” The American people cannot be political “leverage.” So I am glad we’re now poised to move ahead.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
