In a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday, failed vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine called on President Trump to “quit the inflammatory China-bashing.”
“One more thing, quit the inflammatory China-bashing,” Kaine said. “Did this virus originate in China? Yes. But Mr. President, that does not excuse your weeks and weeks of tweeting lies and misinformation about the virus, while the leaders of other nations were taking steps to make sure their populations could be safe…
“The president’s decision to call this China virus or Wuhan virus or other epithets that he and members of his team use are a crass effort to deflect blame away from the acceptance of responsibility that a president should do,” Kaine blathered. “The buck stops with you, Mr. President. You cannot blame this on anyone else. You have to own responsibility and you should stop inflammatory China-bashing that is exposing Asian Americans in this country to prejudice.”
You lie, Sen. Kaine. Quit the inflammatory Trump-bashing. Do your job and help make America great.
