Democrats have been attacking Donald Trump every day since he took office in January of 2017. Those attacks, however, have abated since the president was diagnosed with COVID-19 over the weekend. This is despite the fact that Trump openly mocked the safety measures that may have prevented his illness.
Nancy Pelosi, however, took the gloves off and came out swinging on Sunday morning. The Speaker of the House said that Republican congressman don’t believe in science or in the government.
Pelosi made the comments during an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation. She told host Margaret Brennan, “For a long time the Republicans in Congress and this president have been anti-science. They don’t trust science and they don’t believe in government.”
The Speaker of the House continued, “So, if science says you should be testing, tracing, treating, mask-wearing, sanitation, separation, and the rest, and you don’t believe in science, and you don’t want — which is what you have do, then you have more deaths, more spread of the virus.”
Pelosi closed her comments, “You can see this even with denial on climate change, that we’re suffering these fires, that they don’t believe in fires, and they don’t want to do anything.”
