Pelosi: Trump coronavirus missteps 'caused unnecessary death'

[www.aol.com]

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released to the public a letter to her Democratic colleagues Tuesday in which she charged President Trump with missteps in handling the coronavirus pandemic that “caused unnecessary death and economic disaster” in the United States.

Pelosi’s letter contained a bullet-pointed list of what she said was “the truth of what has put us in this position.” It included the following items:

The truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths and economic disaster.

The truth is that in January Donald Trump was warned about this pandemic, ignored those warnings, took insufficient action and caused unnecessary death and economic disaster.

The truth is that Donald Trump told his most loyal followers that the pandemic was a hoax and that it would magically disappear, thus endangering lives and paving the way for economic disaster.

The truth is that we did not have proper testing available in March despite Trump repeatedly claiming that we did; and even now, we do not have adequate tests, masks, PPE, and necessary equipment, which creates unnecessary death and suffering.

The truth is because of an incompetent reaction to this health crisis, the strong economy handed to Donald Trump is now a disaster, causing the suffering of countless Americans and endangering lives.

The truth is a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others.

So maybe the news networks ought to give Ms Pelosi 2 1/2 hours of their time to go through the points in detail?

Like that's gonna' happen, she'll be lucky if they give it a passing mention.

Notice anything that many of the nations that have managed the pandemic the best have in common?




Female heads of state.

We could have had one. But no.

There you go again, talking about the devil herself. You’re just going to provoke certain trolls, who have and will always tell us that they abhor everything she stood for (...like...umm, maintaining Social Security, working toward affordable healthcare, and adult leadership in a crisis?)

PS- Iceland has done pretty well through this pandemic, with a focus on testing:

Quote

Iceland began testing its population in early February, weeks before its first coronavirus-related death...adding that health officials have aggressively contact-traced and quarantined confirmed and suspected Covid-19 cases.

"The only reason that we are doing better is that we were even more vigilant....We took seriously the news of an epidemic starting in China. We didn't shrug our shoulders and say, 'this is not going to be anything remarkable.'"

Eight deaths countrywide so far.

Their Prime Minister (since 2017) is Katrín Jakobsdóttir, who has been one of the leaders of the Left-Green Movement since 2003.

Damn commies.

Imagine if the pandemic response team, CDC funding, and our American disease expert in China had all still been in place. Imagine someone who didn't capitalize the ME in America. I try not to torture myself with this thought, but it returns over and over.

And somebody not allergic to bad news. Not lined up with the nationalist UK/Brazil/Russia crowd. Willing to take responsibility, make the tough choices, seek advice from the right people.
Coulda been so much different. Still very bad, but different.
