Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired off a brutal response after Hillary Clinton posted yet another attack on President Trump and his coronavirus response.
The former First Lady shared a Washington Post story and quote with her social media followers which falsely alleges the President took over two months to treat the pandemic seriously.
“Replace this man in November,” she added.
Crenshaw Fires Back
Crenshaw responded to the bitter two-time failed presidential candidate as he often does – using facts to thoroughly embarrass those trying to score cheap political points.
“Denial?” Crenshaw (R-TX) shot back. “From the man who restricted travel in January [and] saved lives, while your party celebrated his impeachment?”
Indeed, the administration’s CDC reported the first case of coronavirus in the United States on January 15th.
That same day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was signing articles of impeachment over to the Senate and handing out commemorative pens to fellow Democrats in celebration.
Denial? From the man who restricted travel in January & saved lives, while your party celebrated his impeachment?
You may be confusing him with the Washington Post, telling America to get a grip, that COVID19 wasn’t scary, & that we should be wary of an aggressive govt response. https://t.co/kVzeUFBckN pic.twitter.com/T7p0y1v2aq

Hammers the Washington Post
Not only did he eviscerate Hillary, but Crenshaw took down the Washington Post for running an article suggesting the President’s lack of response cost people their lives.
“You may be confusing him with the Washington Post, telling America to get a grip. That COVID-19 wasn’t scary, [and] that we should be wary of an aggressive [government] response,” he added.
Bolstering his argument, the Republican lawmaker provided screenshots of past columns from the Post.
“Get a grippe, America,” reads one headline published days after Trump had already implemented travel restrictions from China. “The flu is a much bigger threat than coronavirus, for now.”
“Why we should be wary of an aggressive government response to coronavirus,” another conveys days later.
Now, the liberal rag and a petulant Clinton want you to think it was the President who didn’t take things seriously.

Trump Saved Lives
Crenshaw has previously made a fool of Hillary for being unable to get Trump out of her head, taking shots at him during a time of crisis.
“He did promise ‘America First,'” Clinton wrote in a classless joke on the day media outlets were ignoring China’s false reporting and declaring America to be the number one nation in coronavirus cases.
“Delete your account,” replied Crenshaw. “This isn’t the time. This can’t be the new normal, where American tragedy is applauded for the sake of political opportunism.”

There’s what goes on in Hillary’s head, and then there’s reality.
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.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, former lead White House doctor appointed by Barack Obama, has made similar arguments.
The President’s actions, he surmised, would “save countless American lives.”
Seems the only people in denial right now are the Democrats.
