Pelosi Desperate To Defend Chinatown Action Uses Two Blatant Lies

Georgette April 21, 2020 Coronavirus, Democrats, Nancy Pelosi, Politics Comments Off on Pelosi Desperate To Defend Chinatown Action Uses Two Blatant Lies

On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi made the rounds on friendly ‘news’ outlets in order to defend her actions in February, when she encouraged people to visit Chinatown for the Chinese New Year.

Her pathetic spin attempt was based on two blatant lies. 1. That President Trump called the virus a “hoax,” and 2. The president did not take the threat of the virus seriously from the start.

Both are outrageous lies, but were never corrected.

Townhall reported:

During a Sunday morning interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the journalist pressed the speaker on her own actions. Back in February, Pelosi encouraged residents in her San Francisco district to visit Chinatown because “everything is fine.”

“If the president underplayed the threat in the early days, Speaker Pelosi, didn’t you as well?” Wallace asked.

“No,” Pelosi said, smiling. “What we were trying to end the discrimination, the stigma that was going out against the Asian American community. And, in fact, if you look, the records show that our Chinatown has been a model of containing and preventing the virus so I have confidence and our folks there thought it was necessary to offset some of the things that the president and others were saying about Asian Americans and making them a target, a target of violence across the country.”

Wallace pressed back, asking the speaker if she was playing into that perception by walking around without a mask, telling people that it’s “perfectly safe” to be out in public, that “there wasn’t a threat generally.”

“No, I was saying that you shouldn’t discriminate against Chinese Americans, as some in our administration were doing by the way they were labeling the flu,” Pelosi explained.

The speaker said, once again, that if Wallace checked the record he would find San Francisco’s Chinatown has been a “model” for containment and prevention.

 

Pelosi has a lot of nerve to say that she took the Wuhan coronavirus seriously from the get-go. If she did, she wouldn’t have encouraged people to visit Chinatown. Even if she wanted to put a stop to so-called “racism,” she could have reminded people that Asian Americans are not responsible for this pandemic. The Chinese Communist Party is.

People don’t have to go attend parades or eat in Chinatown to appreciate their Chinese neighbors. Encouraging tourism wouldn’t halt racism, assuming it existed. If anything, it encouraged people to gather in large crowds when this virus is known to be highly contagious. The worst part of this whole thing: Pelosi is smiling and thinks this is a game.

Continuing to spread the false narrative that the president did not act quickly to prevent infection in the United States, many people argue, is simply making Pelosi look like a senile, pathetic, hate-filled idiot. They argue that the only people who actually believe her are the brain-dead leftists who watch these networks for real ‘news.’
