Sen. Marsha Blackburn blasted Nancy Pelosi for accusing President Trump of not adequately responding to the coronavirus crisis in the United States.
“This is the same person that fiddled around with a sham impeachment* that wasted valuable time,” Blackburn, a Republican, tweeted. “You’re not fooling anyone, Nancy.”
Few days ago, Nancy Pelosi said that President Trump’s response to the coronavirus and the need for more medical supplies were causing people to lose their lives.
“The president, his denial at the beginning, was deadly. His delaying of getting equipment to where it — continues his delaying in getting equipment to where it’s needed is deadly,” the House Speaker said Sunday.
“This is such a tragedy. We don’t even know the magnitude of it because we don’t have adequate testing,” she added.
President Trump responded to Pelosi’s remarks in a tweet on Monday and also referred to her as a “sick puppy” in an interview with Fox & Friends.
“Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats delayed the Workers Help/Stimulus Bill by over a week, trying to add real ‘junk’ into the Bill,” President Trump tweeted.
“Got some bad things, having nothing to do with those affected by the Virus, included. Republicans need their votes until we WIN BACK THE HOUSE IN 2020!” Trump added.
