As we reported on Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) attacked President Donald Trump on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, claiming that Trump was fiddling while denying the Wuhan coronavirus and that was “deadly.”

The reality is that while Trump was addressing the problem in January by activating the CDC, forming a task force on top of all the assets already in place, and cutting travel with China, the Democrats were concentrated on pursuing a fruitless impeachment, calling the task force “too white” and claiming that cutting travel was “racist” or “xenophobia.”

Here’s a sample of what Pelosi was concentrated on doing on February 24th, found by @LNSmithee via Tom Elliott.

There she is in a crowded store encouraging other people to come down and visit for the Chinese New Year as one normally might, social distancing be damned. According to the reporter, Pelosi said it was “perfectly safe” to be there. She said it was exciting to be there, to be “unified” with our community. “We do want to say to people, come to Chinatown, here we are…come join us.”

There are now 2000 cases in the San Francisco Bay Area with six dead.

It wasn’t just Pelosi. Other Democrats had made similar statements over the period, encouraging people to go out to events and go about their normal social interactions.

New York has the most cases in the nation at this point, with almost 60,000 cases and almost 1000 deaths.
