Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just issued a shocking public health announcement. Millions of Americans across the country are stunned — no one can believe she went public with this news.
“I have concerns about the health of the American people,” said Pelosi during an appearance on CNN. “I have concerns about the statements the President has made, minimizing the risk that the coronavirus has made to their good health.”
Contextually, Pelosi was responding to President Donald Trump’s plan to hold a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is claiming that Trump is endangering people’s lives over politics and “for an ego trip.” But all Pelosi has done is expose her own self-interest and hypocrisy.
First of all, there’s a reason why Democrats don’t want Trump out on the campaign trail: He draws massive crowds and they cannot compete with that kind of enthusiasm — especially with Biden at the top of their ticket. It is perilous optics for an already fractured Democratic Party.
Then there is Pelosi’s own double-standard. She has shown full support for the BLM protests, in which hundreds and sometimes thousands of people have marched close together. It is impossible to practice “social distancing” in such a situation, yet Pelosi hasn’t said a negative word.
In fact, she has even marched in a protest herself and is in no place to throw stones. But this is what Democrats do — they make rules for others and do not follow the rules themselves. Trump is back on the campaign trail and there’s nothing they can do to stop it.
