Throughout American history, there have been times when the crisis facing the federal government was so great and the consequences of failure so grave, that partisanship had to be pushed aside. As we enter a week that the Surgeon General likened to Pearl Harbor for the healthcare system, it is clear that this is one of those times.
Someone forget to tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Per Fox News:
The House speaker appeared on CNN Sunday. The California Democrat could have tried to unite the country and rally Americans to battle the invisible coronavirus that is blasting our nation in a silent blitzkrieg. Instead, she attacked this war’s commander in chief and slurred those combatting this foreign plague.
Pelosi told “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper that “as the president fiddles, people are dying.” With those seven hideous words, Pelosi insinuated that President Trump is shrugging his shoulders as thousands of Americans drop dead. She essentially accused Trump of negligent homicide.
As for “the president fiddles,” Nervous Nancy either knowingly lied through her clenched teeth or she is as blind as a bat in a bowl of Chinese soup. Regardless, she should know that Trump is not playing the fiddle. He’s waving a conductor’s baton.
The president’s detailed, hours-long, daily briefings and press interrogations confirm that he, Vice President Mike Pence, and Trump’s team of Cabinet secretaries, agency leaders, military commanders, doctors, scientists, and CEOs are performing an almost hyperactive concerto in response to an unprecedented challenge that tumbled from the sky, like a microscopic hydrogen bomb.
Fortunately, other Democratic Party figures, from California Governor Gavin Newsom to Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar have praised the president’s response.
