During a press conference on Friday, Nancy Pelosi continued her latest mantra that the “Republicans reject science and reject governance.” She said the same thing during a recent interview: “Delay and denial caused deaths because they (Republicans) didn’t respect science and they don’t favor governance.”
She also made the outrageous claim that President Trump wants people to inject themselves with Lysol:
“The president is asking people to inject Lysol into their lungs and, Mitch was saying that states should go bankrupt. It’s a clear, visible within 24 hours of how the Republicans reject science and reject governance.”
Speaker Pelosi calls Senator McConnell by his first name repeatedly during this press conference. Her disrespect is showing.
She also claims that McConnell wants states to go bankrupt. Not true. He wants states to be more fiscally responsible instead of going into debt over the public pensions. Many of the states asking for a bailout were already in financial trouble before the coronavirus crisis due to mismanagement of funds.
IS PELOSI USING THE “WRAP-UP SMEAR”:
“You demonize…We call it the wrap-up smear. You want to talk about politics? It’s a wrap-up smear. You smear somebody with falsehoods and then you merchandise it and then you write it and then say, see, it’s reported in the press that this, this and this so they have that validation that the press reported the smear. Now I am going to merchandise the press’ report on the smear that we made. It’s a tactic. It’s self-evident…I love the fray.” – Nancy Pelosi, October 7, 2018
