Democrat leaders have been criticizing Trump for spreading misinformation when a new report shows they are actually the ones doing so.
According to Grabien:
Democrats are chastising President Trump for his handling of the Coronavirus global pandemic, but a review of their initial handling of the crisis looks far worse in retrospect.
As news reports began circulating that the disease was able to be transmitted from person to person, Democratic lawmakers continued encouraging Americans to gather in large groups.
The Coronavirus, De Blasio said February 14th, "should not stop you from going about your life, should not stop you from going to Chinatown and going out to eat. I’m going to do that today myself.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi likewise urged Americans to patronize restaurants, specifically in Chinatown. While touring Chinatown businesses on February 28th, Pelosi said: "It’s exciting to be here, especially at this time, to be able to be unified with our community. We want to be vigilant about what might be on a — what is out there in other places. We want to be careful about how we deal with it, but we do want to say to people, come to Chinatown. Here we are. We’re, again, careful, safe and come join us.”
In New Orleans, they held Mardi Gras despite reports about the virus and then tried to blame Trump because he did not tell them to not have it.
