Today’s quote comes to us from the execrable nancy pelosi.
This comment, voiced during pelosi’s time on this morning’s State Of The Union show on CNN, is her “contribution” to getting us through the COVID-19 crisis:
“Well, first of all let me just say how sad it is that even since the President’s signing of the bill, the number of deaths reported has doubled from one thousand to two thousand in our country. This is such a very, very sad time for us. So we should be taking every precaution.
“Uh, what the President, his uh, denial at the beginning uh, was deadly. His delaying of getting uh, equipment to where it, it continues his delay to getting equipment to where it is needed is deadly. And now I think the best thing would be to do is to prevent more uh, loss of life rather than open things up so that, cause we just don’t know. We have to have testing, testing, testing. That’s what we said from the start before we can evaluate uh, what the, the uh, nature of it is in some of these other regions as well. I don’t know what the purpose of that is.
“I don’t know what the scientists are saying to him. I don’t know what the scientists said to him. When did this president know about this and what did he know? What did he know and when did he know it? That’s for an after-action review. But as the President fiddles, people are dying. and we have to, we just have to take every precaution.”
What a pig this “woman” is.
Here is my take on what she’s really saying:
“I admit I don’t know anything about what’s going on over there, but Trump is killing people. See, he’s just fiddling around. All those actions he has taken – like, for example, shutting down travel from China and saving countless lives by doing so, while I and my pals called him a racist and xenophobe for doing so – don’t count.
“And just a month ago, on February 24th, when I went to San Francisco’s Chinatown and told people to come on down and join the throngs? When I said..
“You should come to Chinatown. Precautions have been taken by our city. We know there is concern about tourism throughout the world but we think it’s very safe to be in Chinatown and hopefully, others will come.”
…well, that doesn’t count either.
“Whoever took my advice and contracted COVID-19, don’t blame me. Blame that Trump guy, like I told you.”
I award nancy pelosi Quote Of The Day (dis)honors for showing us again, as she has so many other times, that she is a pig, who puts political BS above everyone and everything. Even during a crisis like this one.
