Trump Whacks Democrats Latest Coronavirus Committee ‘Witch Hunt’

President Trump hammered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for announcing a new coronavirus committee investigating his administration’s response to the pandemic.

“Here we go again,” the President said, echoing the sentiments of a vast swath of American voters.

“It’s witch hunt after witch hunt after witch hunt,” Trump continued. “It’s not any time for witch hunts.”

Damage To Our Country

The President pointed out that while Americans come together in trying to defeat the most consequential national disaster since 9/11, Democrats have used the suffering of people to score political points.

Pelosi announced the coronavirus committee on Thursday, noting they will investigate the management of the bailout package to help coronavirus victims and “all aspects of the federal response” to the pandemic.

“We have seen Americans unite with incredible selflessness and compassion,” Trump responded. “I want to remind everyone here in our nation’s capital, especially in Congress, that this is not the time for politics, endless partisan investigations.”

“They’ve [Democrats] already done extraordinary damage to our country in recent years,” he added.

Schiff Show Part Two

Pelosi’s impeachment manager, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff also demanded a 9/11 commission-style investigation into the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” Schiff tweeted. “Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.”

That’s right, the two lead clowns who bogged down an entire nation with impeachment dreams while the coronavirus was beginning to flourish are forming committees to figure out why the country wasn’t focused on anything else.

Focus on America

President Trump urged Democrats to instead come together and defeat the enemy instead of accidentally improving his poll numbers by acting like partisan hacks.

“It’s time to get this enemy defeated. Conducting these partisan investigations during a pandemic is a really big waste of vital resources, time, attention,” he commented.

“And we want to fight for American lives, not waste time and build up my poll numbers – because that’s all they’re doing, because everyone knows it’s ridiculous,” the President accurately explained.

Democrats aren’t interested in fighting for American lives. They’re only interested in saving their own political lives.

Schiff Wants 9/11-Style Commission to Investigate Trump Administration’s Response to Coronavirus

Adam Schiff says he will introduce a bill to create a “nonpartisan” 9/11-style commission to study why America was “so unprepared” for the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s repeat that.

The man who bogged down an entire nation with impeachment dreams while the coronavirus was beginning to flourish, is mobilizing the House Intelligence Committee, which he chairs, to figure out why the country wasn’t necessarily focused on the problem at hand.

Pearl Harbor, 9/11 … Coronavirus

Schiff shared an article from the Washington Post that cited his desire to begin an investigation once the crisis subsides.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” Schiff (D-CA) tweeted. “Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.”

“I’m working on a bill to do that,” he added.

The Post article goes on to cite positive and negative actions taken by the Trump administration, leaving little doubt as to who Schiff is actually going after.

Says Trump ‘Screwed Up’

Further proof that Schiff is focused not on “our mistakes” but the supposed mistakes made by President Trump himself are comments the impeachment manager made the night before.

In an appearance on MSNBC, Schiff said those blaming his impeachment sham for distracting the country were inadvertently admitting that “the administration screwed up this response.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blamed the highly partisan effort for distracting lawmakers when coronavirus was.

“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial,” McConnell asserted. “And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment.”

Schiff Is Full Of It

“Yeah, the president said something similar, which, you know, was an interesting acknowledgment that the administration screwed up this response,” Schiff claimed without evidence.

“The facts are quite clear that the president’s weeks long, maybe months-long delay in taking this seriously has had catastrophic consequences that we are only now beginning to see the scope of.”

The facts ARE quite clear.

While Schiff, Pelosi, and the Democrats were developing their impeachment arguments, President Trump would issue travel restrictions with China, establish the Coronavirus Task Force, and declare coronavirus a public health emergency.

If there is any investigation, it needs to encompass the resistance party’s lack of action or hindrance to those trying to take action.

FLASHBACK: Watch Nancy Pelosi Completely Ignore Trump’s Coronavirus Comments During SOTU Speech

A video circulating on social media shows House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemingly ignoring President Donald Trump as he discusses the coronavirus during his February 4th State of the Union address.

The video was shared by Steve Guest, Rapid Response Director for the Republican National Committee.

Guest describes Pelosi’s actions during the clip as ‘zoning out.’

Did She Zone Out?

While it is difficult to ascertain what is going on in Pelosi’s head as the President speaks, it’s quite clear she’s doing everything BUT paying attention to what he is saying.

She’s fidgeting with papers, checking notes, reading excerpts, and even staring at somebody or something off to her right.

What she’s not doing is listening to President Trump say the following:

Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases.  We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China.  My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.

And knowing Pelosi had been planning to rip up the President’s speech like a petty and petulant child all along, it’s hard not to assume that is what was on her mind at the time.

RELATED: Obama Accuses Trump Of Denying Coronavirus Warnings, Ted Cruz Fires Back

Who Ignored The Threat?

That clip is pretty damning considering two things.

One, Pelosi has accused President Trump of denying the seriousness of the pandemic.

“The president’s denial at the beginning was deadly,” the House speaker told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “His delay in getting equipment to where it’s needed is deadly … As the President fiddles, people are dying.”

This video literally shows Pelosi fiddling while the President tells all of Congress and the world that he is taking the threat quite seriously, taking steps to try and protect the American people, and even working with the Chinese government to stop the spread.

And two, the clip serves as a reminder that while the President was busy working for the American people, Democrats were focused on other things. Other things like the shiny, red object known as impeachment.

RELATED: Trump Refuses St. Patrick’s Day Lunch Invitation From Nancy Pelosi

Lying Pelosi

Whatever she’s doing in the aforementioned clip, it’s quite clear Pelosi is lying and trying to deflect blame on President Trump.

While she and her Democrat colleagues ‘fiddled,’ the administration from the onset did the following:

  • January 6: The CDC issued a travel notice for Wuhan, China due to coronavirus.
  • January 7: The CDC established a coronavirus incident management system to better share and respond to information about the virus.
  • January 8: The CDC issued an advisory to “state and local health departments and health care providers” regarding coronavirus.
  • January 11: The CDC issued a “Level I Travel Health Notice” for Wuhan, China.

What was Pelosi doing? She was ordering commemorative impeachment pens for her friends to celebrate bogging down the entire country with their little political games.

“There’s something wrong with the woman,” Trump recently said of the House Speaker. “She focused on impeachment, and she lost, and she looked like a fool.”

“She’s a sick puppy in my opinion.”

Obama Accuses Trump Of Denying Coronavirus Warnings, Ted Cruz Fires Back

Barack Obama took a not-so-veiled swipe at President Trump, accusing his administration of ‘denying’ warning signs of a pandemic.

The former President took the jab on social media, sharing an article that discussed the White House’s efforts to roll back Obama-era regulations on gas mileage and emissions.

“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial,” he wrote. “All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”

Cruz Missile

Texas senator Ted Cruz responded by pointing out the obvious – that while President Trump was implementing travel restrictions to slow the pandemic, Nancy Pelosi and Obama’s former VP Joe Biden were fighting it.

“Bold: Obama calls for the overwhelming electoral defeat of Joe Biden [and] Nancy Pelosi, after they opposed [and] demagogued Trump’s China travel ban, which helped slow the coronavirus pandemic,” he wrote.

There is little doubt at this point that Trump’s actions did just that, with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, pointing out repeatedly that the President’s actions slowed the spread and saved lives.

RELATED: Dr. Fauci: President Trump’s Travel Ban Is What May Save This Country From Becoming Italy

Biden and Pelosi

Cruz is right – it was Democrats like Biden and Pelosi who hammered the President for daring to implement travel restrictions to combat the pandemic or ignored his warnings.

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, and fear-mongering to lead the way instead of science,” Biden said on the day Trump announced the restrictions.

House Speaker Pelosi meanwhile, has been accused by President Trump of ignoring his attempts to tighten travel restrictions.

“All she did was focus on impeachment. She didn’t focus on anything having to do with pandemics,” he insisted.

She also must have missed when Trump addressed the coronavirus outbreak in his State of the Union speech, perhaps more focused on her staged protest – ripping up her copy – than on what he was actually saying.

Takes Guts

It takes a tremendous amount of chutzpah for Obama to accuse Trump of denying the pandemic knowing full well his administration helped handcuff any actions he may have taken.

In 2009, the H1N1 swine flu pandemic triggered a massive deployment of respirators and masks, but the Obama administration never set about replenishing the stockpile, despite warnings from multiple experts.

Also that year, Obama scrapped the White House Health and Security Office, which worked on international health issues.

And a Fox News report, citing yearly budget requests, reveals “the Obama administration repeatedly sought to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

Dr. Fauci Slaps Down CNN’s Jim Acosta Attempt To Say Trump’s Coronavirus Response Was Too Slow

CNN reporter Jim Acosta attempted to get Dr. Anthony Fauci to say the President didn’t react quickly enough to the coronavirus crisis. In fact, he said the exact opposite.

Acosta inquired as to whether or not the administration had taken enough action when countries such as South Korea and China were grappling with the outbreak.

The exchange between him and Fauci took place during Tuesday’s coronavirus task force briefing.

Acosta’s Accusation

The White House coronavirus task force announced yesterday that the pandemic may leave 100,000 to 240,000 people in the United States dead, with millions infected.

A somber President Trump announced that America could be in for “a very painful two weeks.”

Acosta couldn’t help but take that opportunity to point a finger of blame at the administration.

“This may be an uncomfortable question but what would the models have looked like … if we had started the social distancing guidelines sooner in February or January when China, South Korea were doing those,” he asked. “Could these models be different?”

Taken Out of Context

The President decided to yield this question to his experts, but not without first pointing out that his travel restrictions early on helped slow the spread, something Dr. Fauci has agreed with many times.

Dr. Deborah Birx stepped up and explained pushing back on the virus couldn’t necessarily start until testing results were available in the United States.

Acosta replied, “There may be Americans at home saying if we had started this sooner we might not have 100,000 to 200,000 Americans dying.”

Fauci followed up Birx’s comments by calling out Acosta for an attempt to find a quote and take it out of context.

“Just to underscore what Dr. Birx was saying, if there was no virus in the background there was nothing to mitigate,” he explained.

“If there was virus there that we didn’t know about than the answer to your question is probably yes,” Fauci continued. “The only trouble with that is that whenever you come out and say something like that it always becomes almost a soundbite that gets taken out of context.”

 

RELATED: Watch: President Trump Makes An Example Out of Jim Acosta Yet Again

Very, Very Early

Ultimately, Dr. Fauci replied to Acosta’s question by saying that yes, the administration did act swiftly to help lessen the devastating impact of the coronavirus.

“But we were watching South Korea excuse me and China and Italy and we weren’t taking action when those countries were spiking,” Acosta insisted.

“In a perfect world it would’ve been nice to know what was going on there,” Fauci replied. “We didn’t but I believe Jim that we acted very, very early in that.”

Acosta tried once again to manipulate sound bites by leading people with “an uncomfortable question” and Fauci shot down that effort in a hurry.

The far-left CNN reporter tried the same thing a day earlier when he attempted to blame President Trump for not taking the virus seriously enough in the beginning.

That effort prompted the President to say, “Instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that, you should ask a real question.”

Who knows, maybe he’ll try that approach next time. But we wouldn’t bet on it.

Mitch McConnell Points Finger Of Blame For Coronavirus Crisis Directly At Impeachment Happy Democrats

Senator Mitch McConnell tore into Democrats for distracting lawmakers from being better equipped in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

The Majority Leader pointed out that Congress was still being pulled in the wrong direction by having to focus resources on the impeachment effort heralded by Nancy Pelosi and her resistance minions.

Distraction

McConnell made the comments during a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt.

“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment,” the Kentucky Republican recalled.

RELATED: Maxine Waters Accuses Trump Of Lying, Ignoring Early Warnings On Coronavirus

Consumed With Impeachment

McConnell’s comments echo those of Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) who said he began studying the coronavirus problem in mid-January.

“I have to tell you that in mid-January and late-January, unfortunately, Washington, especially the Congress was consumed with another matter — you may recall the partisan impeachment of the president,” Cotton explained.

It’s good to hear officials admitting what many supporters of the President have believed for some time – the nation would have been better prepared if lawmakers weren’t distracted by a partisan impeachment sham.

On January 15th, the CDC reported that the coronavirus had arrived in America.

What were Democrats up to? After delaying sending over the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a month, Pelosi was all smiles, gleefully handing out pens while signing her articles of impeachment.

RELATED: President Trump Taunts Romney Over Coronavirus Test Results

Trump Wasn’t Distracted

While McConnell’s comments were more focused on Congress, one would hardly be off base if they thought President Trump himself may have been distracted by the whole ridiculous resistance affair.

But he wasn’t.

Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson said the President’s early actions were “going to save countless American lives.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, credited Trump’s travel restrictions – implemented in the midst of the impeachment effort – with saving lives.

One of the key actions necessary to control the spread of the virus, Fauci explained, is to “contain the influx of people who are infected coming from the outside.”

In late January, while Democrats were entirely focused on impeachment, President Trump would issue travel restrictions with China, establish the Coronavirus Task Force, and declare coronavirus a public health emergency.

Imagine what could have been done – better planning to respond to the crisis, economic measures to stop job losses – if Democrats focused on America instead of their own political ambitions.

Maxine Waters Accuses Trump Of Lying, Ignoring Early Warnings On Coronavirus

Rep. Maxine Waters accused President Trump of ignoring early coronavirus warnings and suggested he’s “gotten away with a lot of lying.”

The fact that the first part of that sentence is a complete lie is an irony that apparently escapes the California Democrat.

“The early notifications I’m told were ignored,” Waters said during a weekend interview with MSNBC.

Accuses Trump of Lying

Waters then accused the President of lying regarding his implementation of the Defense Production Act.

“I know that the president has gotten away with a lot of lying about what is going to happen with the Defense Act, and he said that he was going to, first of all, invoke it. He did not,” she claimed.

“He waited until the heat was on him, and then he lied on some of the big businesses that he said he had an agreement with that he really didn’t have.”

These are the same people who couldn’t stomach the thought of the President invoking various war powers acts for the last three years, now demanding he does just that.

Trump invoked the Defense Production Act on Friday, compelling General Motors to start making ventilators.

Shut His Mouth

Waters’ comments are in line with those she made weeks ago when she called the President of the United States a “liar” and suggested he should shut his mouth on the coronavirus crisis.

“It’s been said over and over again that you cannot trust this president. Not only is he a liar, he does not believe in anything scientific,” she claimed without evidence. “So the President of the United States cannot be relied upon. Someone said he needs to be quiet, he needs to shut his mouth.”

First, she says he needs to keep his mouth shut, then complains that he hasn’t said or done enough.

RELATED: Lack Of N95 Respirator Masks Found To Be Fault Of Obama Administration

Maxine Is Lying

It’s never a good idea to accuse somebody of lying while simultaneously doing the same thing.

As we’ve noted, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has repeatedly credited President Trump with saving countless lives through swift action at the very beginning.

Travel restrictions implemented by the administration in late January helped limit the spread of the virus.

What were Waters and her fellow Democrats focused on at that time? The impeachment sham.

Aside from that, she also blamed President Trump for a lack of respirators.

The reality, however, is that it was the Obama-Biden administration that failed to replenish those supplies.

In 2009, the H1N1 swine flu pandemic triggered a massive deployment of respirators and masks.

But the Obama administration never set about replenishing the stockpile, despite warnings from multiple experts and a 2010 report funded by the federal government recommending the repository of masks be restocked for a future pandemic.

“In hindsight, it appears to be shortsighted,” said the senior director of public health preparedness for the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials.

Waters is the very definition of short-sighted.

Trump Calls Nancy Pelosi A ‘Sick Puppy’ After She Blames Him For Coronavirus Deaths

President Donald Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “sick puppy” following comments she made suggesting his actions in dealing with the coronavirus crisis have been “deadly.”

The President responded to Pelosi’s attack during a phone interview with Fox & Friends Monday morning.

“She’s got a lot of problems and that’s a horrible thing to say,” Trump fumed, before noting that it was his actions very early on that saved lives.

“I stopped some very, very infected, very, very sick people, thousands coming in from China, long earlier than anybody thought, including the experts, nobody thought we should do it except me,” he insisted.

Sick Puppy

Pelosi, in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper this weekend, compared President Trump to the Roman Emperor Nero and implied that Democrats might embark on another investigation of his actions.

“What did he know and when did he know it?” Pelosi asked. “That’s for an after-action review. But as the president fiddles, people are dying.”

She also suggested, despite evidence to the contrary, that Trump’s “denial at the beginning, was deadly.”

Trump on Monday said, “She’s a sick puppy in my opinion.”

 

RELATED: Nancy Pelosi: ‘As The President Fiddles, People Are Dying’

The President responded to the suggestion that an investigation might be forthcoming by reminding viewers that Democrats were focusing on the impeachment sham when word of the coronavirus spreading to the United States was starting to hit.

“There’s something wrong with the woman,” he understated. “She focused on impeachment, and she lost, and she looked like a fool.”

Trump concluded by insinuating Pelosi is “a disgrace to her country [and] her family.”

One of the key actions necessary to control the spread of the virus, Fauci explained, is to “contain the influx of people who are infected coming from the outside.”

Dr. Ronny Jackson, former lead White House doctor appointed by Barack Obama, has made similar comments that refute Pelosi’s blame game claims.

The President’s actions, he concluded, are “going to save countless American lives.”

President Trump Taunts Romney Over Coronavirus Test Results

President Donald Trump again taunted Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) Wednesday, this time over the results of his coronavirus test.

Romney announced on Tuesday that his test results came back negative, but would have to remain in quarantine for the remainder of an initial 14-day period.

“Thankfully I’ve tested negative for COVID-19,” the at-times Republican wrote to his followers on Twitter.

“Nevertheless, guidance from my physician, consistent with the CDC guidelines, requires me to remain in quarantine as the test does not rule out the onset of symptoms during the 14-day period,” he added.

Trump Just Can’t Resist

The President couldn’t resist taking a jab at Romney, firing off an early morning tweet laced with sarcasm over the “RINO’s” negative test results.

“This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak,” he quipped.

“He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!” Trump announced.

 

RELATED: Trump Responds To Romney Having To Self-Quarantine: ‘Gee, That’s Too Bad’

Can Barely Speak

While the President claims he can barely speak on the matter due to overwhelming joy, this is the second time he has trolled Romney over the serious effects of potentially being exposed to coronavirus.

Earlier this week, Romney announced that he would have to self-quarantine upon learning that Senator Rand Paul had become the first of his colleagues to test positive for coronavirus.

He explained that the two had “sat next” to each other “for extended periods in recent days.”

Trump responded, not by joking about the virus, but by joking about Romney having to be isolated.

“Romney is in isolation?” he asked a reporter. “Gee, that’s too bad.”

 

RELATED: Mitt Romney Accused Trump Of Being Unprepared For Possible Coronavirus Outbreak

Trump Mocks Avenatti Too

Romney has been a perpetual thorn in the President’s side, most recently suggesting Trump was ill-prepared for the coronavirus crisis.

This, despite the fact that many experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have said his actions very early on saved lives and will prevent the United States from going down the same path as Italy.

Not to mention Romney, around the same time Trump was taking precautions to protect America in late January, was joining Democrats in voting for the President’s impeachment.

Trump was really dishing out the sarcasm, as he also went after media-darling Michael Avenatti.

 

A judge rejected Avenatti’s plea for release from prison due to the coronavirus crisis. He was convicted for attempting to extort more than $25 million from Nike in February.

Dr. Fauci: President Trump’s Travel Ban Is What May Save This Country From Becoming Italy

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, claimed in an interview Sunday that President Trump’s travel ban may be a key to America not getting hit as hard by the coronavirus crisis as other nations.

Never forget that while congressional Democrats were singularly focused on impeaching the President in late January as news of the coronavirus spread, Trump was implementing a crucial travel ban blocking visitors from China, the source of the deadly contagion.

This, Fauci believes, may prove critical in keeping America from going down the path of Italy, which has the highest number of cases and deaths resulting from coronavirus in the world.

Praise for the President

Fauci, in a segment with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” expressed optimism that the United States will “not necessarily at all” end up like Italy.

Why? Because of that travel ban Democrats tried to portray as a racist move by the President.

“Early on they [Italy] did not shut out as well the input of infections that originated in China and came to different parts of the world,” the renowned physician who has worked with six different administrations explained.

“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States because Europe is really the new China,” Fauci continued.

RELATED: Coronavirus Fears Spread – Democrats Respond By Trying To Restrict Trump’s Travel Bans

Preventing an Influx

Dr. Fauci went on to explain that the ‘social distancing’ efforts touted by the White House and the restrictions on travel were key to keeping the coronavirus relatively at bay.

“The kinds of mitigation issues that are going on right now, the things that we’re seeing in this country, this physical separation at the same time as we’re preventing an influx of cases coming in,” said Fauci, “I think that’s going to go a long way to preventing us from becoming another Italy.”

It’s a testament to the President’s leadership that he implemented such a travel ban within days of the outbreak spreading, even in the face of impeachment. Even knowing the Democrats would label him a racist for doing so.

RELATED: Former White House Physician Appointed By Obama: Trump Is Saving American Lives With Response to Coronavirus

Democrats Wanted to Ban the Ban

Despite an unparalleled expert in the field praising the travel ban, Democrats just two weeks ago were actively pushing to end the President’s authority to implement new restrictions.

Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) alleged such bans “hurt families and hurt our national security, and we must stop this president from overextending his authority and banning people from entire countries.”

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said the day after Trump’s travel restrictions were imposed.

The resistance party’s reckless partisan politics are an attempt to smear President Trump and will end up costing people their lives.
