Thursday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of standing in the Democrats’ way of promoting voting-by-mail and safely reopening schools in the fall, claiming that everything she does “is about the children.”
“Let me just say this,” Pelosi began, “you know everything I do is about the children. You know, having five children of my own, nine grandchildren, I worry about everybody’s children in America, of course. I have advice for them whether they want it or not.
“And one of the things that is so terrible is in this epidemic because we’re saying we have to assault the virus, we have to defeat the virus, contain the virus, stop the spread, and that means we have to have testing, tracing, treatment, masks, spacing, all the rest of it,” she continued. “And we especially have to look into the minority community, which is suffering an undue disproportionate impact of this virus… I mean, this is a challenge to our conscience. But, again, [GOP lawmakers] refuse to face the gravity of the situation and listen to scientists and tell us what we need to do.”
Translation: Pelosi is frustrated that Republicans refuse to embrace the coronavirus hysteria Democrats are promoting, exploiting, and politicizing.
