“We couldn’t pass legislation until now because the administration simply did not believe in testing, tracing, treatment, wearing masks, sanitization, separation, and the rest,” Pelosi said following reports of a new coronavirus relief bill.
Fact check: false. Legislation couldn’t be passed because the Democrats refused to work with President Trump. Pelosi admitted as much recently when she told reporters that a deal could be struck now “because we have a new President,” meaning the prematurely-declared President-Elect Joe Biden.
“So now we have a vaccine, and that gives us hope,” Pelosi continued. “People say around here sometimes, ‘I’m faith-oriented so I don’t believe in science.’ And I say, well, you can do both. Science is an answer to our prayers and our prayers have been answered with a vaccine… And with this legislation, we have provision for it to be developed, purchased, and distributed in a way, again, that is fair and equitable and free.”
None of her “faith-oriented” colleagues ever told Pelosi they “don’t believe in science.” First of all, science is a method of investigation, not a belief system. Second, it isn’t that people of faith deny science; the issue is that the so-called science on the coronavirus can’t be trusted, for three reasons: one, the information on coronavirus deaths has been grossly distorted by Democrats who have a vested interest in weaponizing it against Trump; two, the so-called experts have been wrong time and again; and three, the so-called science is not neutral and objectively true, but rather has been hopelessly politicized by Democrats like Pelosi, who herself falsely claims to be a person of deep faith when it suits her agenda.
