House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is obsessed with President Donald Trump. So much so, that she can’t help but get her foot stuck in her mouth even while discussing the very crucial topic of the coronavirus pandemic that is spreading across the United States and has afflicted so many people in hot zones, like Los Angeles, San Fransisco, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
On Sunday she used the media to spin a web of lies and over-exaggerations aimed at targeting the President’s response to coronavirus.
Pelosi, who proved she was the queen of delay when negotiating the coronavirus legislation, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on ‘State of the Union’ that ‘President Trump’s denial “at the beginning was deadly” and that as he “fiddles, people are dying.” Where was Pelosi when the outbreak began in the United States in Washington State? Oh, yes, she was busy impeaching Trump.

Really? This isn’t the case at all. In fact, it was President Trump, on the advice of his healthcare advisors to temporarily bar entry by foreign nationals in January who had traveled in China within the previous 14 days. There were exceptions, as reported by the AP “for the immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Americans returning from China were allowed back after enhanced screening at select ports of entry and for 14 days afterward.”
Moreover, in defiance of the Democrats, the Wold Health Organization and even Democratic hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden who called Trump xenophobic, he stopped the flights and in doing so saved lives.
At the time, China’s state run communist news agencies called him a racist. The WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and his organization, which is nothing more than a mouth piece for warned it would increase “fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.”
Biden said when the flight ban was implemented, “this is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering.”
Moreover, Tapper’s employer CNN ran a story warning that “the US coronavirus travel ban could backfire” and have the effect of “stigmatizing countries and ethnicities.”
In early March, Pelosi, along with other Democratic lawmakers, targeted House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy for calling the coronavirus a Chinese virus and demanded he “delete this tweet and apologize immediately.”
But as far as delays go, it was Pelosi who delayed the essential 2.2 trillion dollar coronavirus relief package, in order to add millions of dollars of funding that did not directly effect the financial distress of the average American worker faced with job loss and lockdowns. During the delay, a record number of 3.28 million Americans applied for unemployment.
On Thursday, she said that Democrats “take pride” in taking the “corporate trickle down” saying, they did “Jiu-Jitsu on it that it went from a corporate first proposal that the Republicans put forth in the Senate to a Democratic workers first legislation.”
It was another over-exaggeration to try and clean up the Democrats reputation after their additions of pork funding, like the Green New Deal, among others were exposed in the legislation.
During Sunday’s CNN interview with Tapper referred to Pelosi’s district of San Fransisco but she evaded discussing her district, where cases of Coronavirus have increased.
“Well first of all, let me say how sad it is since the signing of the bill the number of deaths reported has doubled from 1000 to 2000 in our country,” answered Pelosi. “We should be taking every precaution, the president’s denial at the beginning was deadly. His delaying of getting equipment to where its needed is deadly and now the best thing to do is to prevent more loss of life, rather than open things up because we just don’t know.”
Instead of working together to mitigate this crisis, the Democrats, led by Pelosi are doing everything to continue dividing our nation apart.
