On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on MSNBC and accused President Donald Trump of refusing to accept the facts about coronavirus, and therefore causing an economy collapse. She also lashed out, claiming that Trump called the pandemic a "hoax."
On February 28, at a campaign rally in South Carolina, President Donald Trump compared the Democrats’ criticism of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic to impeachment by saying, “this is their new hoax.”
While there is a real virus, and we aren't denying that, I think most Americans have woken up to the fact that Democrats have taken this situation and milked it to the full potential. Never let a good crisis go to waste, right? There is definitely a sinister political game behind this virus.
Pelosi continued, speaking about the protests, “I won’t take the bait. This is another example of the distraction that they want to make from the fact that the president had said that this pandemic was a hoax, and that’s not true. That the president said, it will magically disappear. That’s not true. Again and again, he was in denial and delay in dealing with this. This is just a distraction. Don’t fall for that. Don’t take the bait.”
MSNBC Anchor Ari Melber said, “Looking at the economic hardship, which of course, is part of the bill you mentioned that you’re working on — Washington Post reporting 22 million unemployed. This was wiped out a decade of job gains.”
“The U.S. has not seen this level of jobless, the Post reports, quote, since the Great Depression. Speaker, do you view this as simply a product of this tough pandemic, or do you view this as a Trump recession?” he asked.
Pelosi replied, “It’s probably a combination. Let’s right now talk about the pandemic because that’s a matter of life and death. We’re in the situation that we’re in because early into this, the president refused to accept the facts.”
“So the situation we’re in is largely of his making, calling it a hoax, saying magically it will disappear, not calling upon the Defense Production Act to protect the workers who are trying to save lives as they risk their own lives in doing so," she claimed.
Melber pondered, “You just laid out your view of his failures coming from the Trump White House on down. Do you think those failures cost lives?”
Pelosi responded, “Yes, I do. I think delaying were deadly. So you say okay, that’s what I didn’t know. The reason I’m speaking out and I sent a letter to my colleagues which I’m overwhelmed by the response I received nationally and from my colleagues insisting on the truth is let’s not continue on a path of misrepresentation and falsehood, let’s get to the science, the evidence, the data, and facts.”
This is just another ploy by democrats to get Trump out of office. Once impeachment failed, they knew their only other chance would be to prevent him from being reelected. They are using the virus to do so.

Convicted Prisoners Released During Pandemic Then the UNIMAGINABLE Happens
Over the last couple of months, hundreds (at least) of prisoners have been released form prison as an act of precaution to those who may be more at risk to catching the coronavirus during this pandemic.
Why they're so concerned makes no sense to me. The whole idea is ridiculous. If they're in jail cells away from people and away from the public where 99.9999999% of the virus is, why would you turn them lose and expose them to it?
Michigan Sheriffs DEFY Governor Whitmer's Lockdown Orders, Vow to Protect Civil Liberties
Earlier this week, Michiganians were united in protest against the tyrant Governor Gretchen Whitmer as they assembled outside the capitol building.
Thousands gathered for this "drive-by" protest not as an act of defiance of her stay at home orders, but in protest of how far she's taken her orders. Some of them literally make no sense.
VIDEO: SBA Paycheck Protection Program Goes BROKE Thanks to Democrats, Pelosi Congratulates Them
It's official. The SBA's Paycheck Protection Program has officially run out of money.
This was expected for weeks and the time has finally come. Congress was aware that funding was going to run out which is why the White House was asking for another $250 billion to go with it. It doesn't look like it's going to happen either. Why? Because Democrats hate America.

CNN's Chris Cuomo is on self-quarantine at his home in East Hampton, New York after testing positive for the coronavirus.
This whole stay at home thing is just too much for Cuomo to handle I believe based on the way he's been talking and things he's been doing.
