In a rare moment of complete honesty, Bret Baier “set the record straight” on who REALLY held up the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) aid for small businesses.
It was clear from the beginning of the delay that Pelosi held up the aid for desperate small businesses but, after the bill passed, Pelosi tried to rewrite history and blame Mitch McConnell. Pelosi is lying just to play political gamesmanship. It’s all about winning in November for Pelosi so she’ll do everything she can to destroy Republicans.
While CNN and MSNBC enable the lies from Democrats, Fox News still has a few shining moments of truth. The video below is one of them.
Bret Baier wasn’t going to let Pelosi’s lie go without calling her out on it:
“Let’s set the record straight. Once Republicans found out the PPP was going to run dry, there was a clean bill to replenish it. Nancy Pelosi didn’t go for it. Period. So to say that the delay was Mitch McConnell’s fault is just political jiujitsu for Nancy Pelosi.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP EVEN CALLED PELOSI OUT ON DELAYING THE PPP:
President Trump called for Nancy Pelosi to get back to Washington during a Coronavirus Task Force press conference.
The Democrats have been holding up the approval of more aid for small businesses. Republicans are calling for the emergency aid to be approved ASAP:
“Nancy Pelosi, she’s away on vacation or something. And she should come back. She should come back and get this done. I don’t know why she’s not coming back. The fact is she’s not doing her job. And there’s nothing unusual about that for her.”

President Trump called out the leaders of the Democratic Party today in a tweet, blasting them for not approving the legislation to aid small businesses.
Americans and even their fellow Democrats have been calling on the leaders to approve the $250B for small businesses. NY Democrat Rep. Max Rose who spoke out yesterday on Fox News called for an end to inserting pork into this emergency aid bill: “If, for a second, you think that this is an opportunity to insert some random tenets of the Green New Deal, some random things that support the Kennedy Center, or anything else that the far-left calls for, this is not the time.”
President Trump called on Pelosi and Schumer to approve the help desperately needed, and then he said they should end their “ENDLESS VACATION.”
PELOSI WAS UNABLE TO EXPLAIN WHY SHE’S BLOCKING THE MONEY OR SMALL BUSINESSES:
Nancy Pelosi struggles, near speechless when asked to “explain to those small businesses” why she is blocking more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program. Note that she tries to blame Leader McConnell, but it’s the Republicans who are begging Pelosi to approve the money:
HOUSE MINORITY LEADER REPUBLICAN KEVIN MCCARTHY SPOKE OUT ABOUT PELOSI’S PRIORITIES:
Apparently the Speaker of the House thinks it’s more important to showcase her freezer full of gourmet ice cream than to fund paychecks for millions of Americans who are at risk of losing their jobs.

MCCARTHY ALSO TOLD SEAN HANNITY:
“Nancy Pelosi is holding up approval of more money that would keep the small businesses afloat, keep their employees paid for and paying their rent. But, Nancy Pelosi says no because every moment of the time she wants to play politics and try to change history…just as she tries to blame this president, President Trump, who took that action.”
