Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley Says Trump’s Handling of Coronavirus ‘Akin to War Crimes’
Ayanna Pressley, on Monday, said that President Donald Trump’s management of the coronavirus outbreak is “akin to war crimes.”
Pressley and other left-wing members of the House of Representatives and leftist organizations held a virtual press conference on Facebook to slam the Trump administration and put forth their demands for what should be in the next coronavirus relief legislation.
Pressley went on to attack Trump saying, “So as far as I’m concerned what’s happening with this administration, it’s akin to war crimes. Criminal negligence, science denial, a sluggish response.”
“And so we find ourselves in the position of playing catch up in the midst of a pandemic,” Pressley said. “Which is the last place you want to be in the midst of any public health crisis — certainly not a pandemic — is working from behind.”
“And we just have to reject any calls for a return to normal because that normal was what was slowly killing people,” she said.
The event was billed as launching the “#PutPeopleFirst campaign” to demand “progressive” priorities in future legislation.
The demands by left-wing members of Congress include a guaranteed income for individuals and families for an extended period; universal health care; debt forgiveness; and housing guarantees.
Those on the call included Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). Activists included Leah Greenberg, co-executive director of the Indivisible Project; Lorella Praeli, president of Community Change Action; Greisa Martinez Rosas, DACA recipient and deputy executive of United We Dream; and Reggie Hubbard, a Washington, DC-based strategist with MoveOn.org.
As they are seeing what seems like a golden opportunity to them, they are starting to cast about in desperation, they know that they may never again have a chance as they do now, many are openly advocating this is a time for a change, does not matter the means used to achieve it.
The first question that comes to mind, Facebook, which was so quick to censor what it claimed was fake news, why did it let something this stupid to be allowed? Or is it only an issue when it is outside their narrative of blaming Trump for this, is that the only time they have a problem?
Second, does this women have a clue what war crimes are? Or is she just another idiot liberal who thinks yelling war crimes are like yelling fascist, has no clue what it means, but it sure sounds good.
As was stated in ‘PELOSI & DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO THROW OBSTACLE AFTER OBSTACLE TO KEEP COUNTRY SHUT DOWN,’ we are going to see more and more effort by the left to demand the economy keep closed. Their greatest fear is that it will open; Trump will get it going again. If he does, they know the election in November will be his to lose.
