Many have already heard the news that President Trump and First Lady Melania have tested positive for COVID.
We wish them well and a speedy recovery—as have many online (including some critics), both Republicans and Democrats.
But it seems like not everyone was able to show a shred of humanity, including Nancy Pelosi.
Her initial comments were decent, but it didn’t take long for the Speaker to go negative:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that President Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis is “tragic” and “very sad,” but predictable, given his frequent contact with crowds.
“This is tragic, it’s very sad, but it also is something that again going into crowds unmasked… was a brazen invitation for something like this to happen,” the speaker told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle Friday…
“I have concerns about the test because obviously, the tests that are happening at the White House are not as accurate as they should be,” she continued.
While many Americans are wishing Trump and Melania well, Pelosi had to use the chance to get political.
She criticized the president for his “frequent” contact with “crowds,” ignoring the fact that he’s the President of the United States. That’s kind of part of the job.
The Speaker also took the opportunity to take an odd shot at the White House, claiming its tests are “not as accurate as they should be.”
Once again, it appears the Speaker is making little sense.
The country has suffered thanks to the pandemic for months. Many have died and many more have lost their livelihoods.
Now, we hear the president and his wife have tested positive—and Pelosi goes low?
The country has been battling COVID since the beginning of 2020. While things have improved a great deal since the dark days of March, most of us are practicing extra caution.
What we need right now is support from all leaders in D.C., especially after learning Trump’s diagnosis.
Can’t Pelosi put aside her partisan bitterness for one minute to just be a human being?
We all saw how Trump behaved when he learned of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing. Did he jump on the political train?
Nope, he simply offered condolences and said a few respectful words for the woman.
It seems Pelosi could learn a thing or two from Trump.
- Pelosi took the news about Trump’s COVID test to make a few potshots at the president.
- Many people—from across the political spectrum—simply offered well wishes.
- The Speaker opted to criticize Trump’s behavior and policy.
