Donald Trump testing positive for coronavirus sent an earthquake through the nation.
Democrats had to figure out how to react to the Commander-in-Chief falling in the final weeks before a Presidential Election.
Nancy Pelosi said the last thing anyone expected after Trump caught coronavirus.
Democrats needed to walk a fine line after Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.
A Morning Consult poll found 40 percent of Democrats were happy Trump caught the virus, but Democrats knew if the public saw elected officials embracing their base’s joy it would ruin them.
In an interview on MSNBC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to walk that tightrope.
Pelosi began the interview by acknowledging that the President testing positive for coronavirus jump-started negotiations in Congress on another relief package.
“This kind of changes the dynamic because here they see the reality of what we have been saying all along,” Pelosi ranted. “This is a vicious virus, and it spreads as the president has known from the start but, as has been revealed. It’s airborne. It’s not just about my touching an arm thing on a plane. It’s airborne, and that makes it more dangerous. I’m optimistic. I’m always optimistic. We always have to find a path. That is our responsibility to do so, and I believe that we will.”
But then while Pelosi tried to express sympathy and offer prayers for the First Family and other Trump aides that contracted coronavirus, Pelosi could not help but take a partisan swipe at President Trump over wearing masks.
“Let’s get back to hoping and praying that the president and the first lady are well, Hope hicks, as well, and any others who may have had that exposure, but also understand that every family in America is as valuable as the first family, and we want them to have the opportunity,” Pelosi added. “And hopefully, hopefully, this enlightenment will have them say wear your mask. Do your distancing. Wash your hands, testing, tracing, treatment so that we can crush this vicious virus — not only in our own country but throughout the world.”
The irony of Nancy Pelosi attacking Donald Trump over mask use was not lost on anyone.
Recently, Nancy Pelosi created a national uproar when security camera footage caught her violating California’s lockdown law by getting a haircut indoors.
The video footage also showed Pelosi moving about the hair salon while not wearing a mask.
Nancy Pelosi has no room to mask shame Donald Trump.
Many critics ripped Pelosi for not wearing a mask inside because they contended it showed that when Pelosi thought no one was looking, she admitted that masks don’t work by her action of not wearing one.
