House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had a terrible week.
After trying to secretly add a slew of left-wing items into the coronavirus relief bill this week, Pelosi was criticized by many on both sides of the political aisle for putting Democrats wish list ahead of the needs of the American people.
When asked about during an interview Tuesday on CNN, Pelosi was not happy about it.
The off-the-rails interview began when snapped at CNN’s Dana Bash asked Pelosi about President Donald Trump’s recent remarks suggesting bringing Americans out of quarantine and back to work.
“I don’t have time to follow people’s twits…tweets, Twitters, whatever, tweets — so don’t expect me to comment on that,” Pelosi said.
“Well, even beyond Twitter, the President of the United States is signaling that he could open it up,” Bash said.
“What is your opinion on that?” Bash said pressing Pelosi.
“I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!” Pelosi said as CNN’s Dana Bash brought up Trump’s plans to open America back up for business soon.
“It is not scientific based — he’s notion mongering,” Pelosi slurred.
During a Fox News virtual town hall, the president and members of the coronavirus task force discussed the administration’s ongoing efforts to combat the Coronavirus.
Trump said he would likely open the country back up by Easter (April 12).
“I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” he said during a Fox News virtual town hall. Easter is just over two weeks away.
“Wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full?” Trump said in a subsequent interview. “You’ll have packed churches all over our country.”
“You can destroy a country this way, by closing it down, where it literally goes from being the most prosperous,” Trump said.
He suggested the time for workers to return to their jobs was a matter of weeks, not months, even as lawmakers and public health experts warn the virus could remain a problem into the summer.
“We can socially distance ourselves and go to work,” he said Tuesday, adding that workers can wash their hands more frequently or stop shaking hands to try to limit the spread of the virus.
While Americans are in desperate need of financial assistance, Pelosi and Democrats are trying to slip in measures to help them in the upcoming election while Trump is trying to reopen the economy and get Americans back to work.
