President Donald Trump on Sunday, April 19, fired back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s criticism over his handling of the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic, calling her an “inherently dumb person.”
Pelosi appeared on “Fox News Sunday” for the first time since 2017 to criticize the president’s response to the crisis and accuse the president of ignoring scientific evidence in formulating a plan to reopen the country. She gave the president an “F” for what she called “weak” leadership.
“Leaders—leaders take responsibility. So I said he’s a weak leader. He doesn’t take responsibility. He places blame—blame on others,” Pelosi told host Chris Wallace. “And that might have been OK before, but we cannot continue down a path that is, again I’ll come back to science, science, science, evidence, data on how we should go forward.”
Wallace countered Pelosi’s claim that President Trump initially downplayed the seriousness of the virus by showing video of walking the streets of Chinatown on Feb. 24 without a mask and encouraging Americans to go there. Pelosi claimed that it was only meant “to end the discrimination” against the Asian-American community. This week, Pelosi allegedly removed the video.
She calls it “the flu” and says that calling it the China Virus is racist towards Asian Americans. Just as Xi Jinping ordered. https://t.co/PLz1maoUYu

Pelosi also opposed the president’s China travel ban on Jan. 31 when the CCP Virus started to ravage China and spread into other countries, warning, “The House will bring the NO BAN Act to the Floor to prohibit religious discrimination in our immigration system and limit the president’s ability to impose such biased and bigoted restrictions.”
This was serial fraudster Nancy Pelosi on travel bans on January 31st, as the Wuhan Virus was raging in China. She’s a disaster for the Congress, and for the country. A total train-wreck. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 pic.twitter.com/yG0AQBJNTd

“Nervous Nancy is an inherently “dumb” person,” President Trump hit back. “She wasted all of her time on the Impeachment Hoax. She will be overthrown, either by inside or out, just like her last time as “Speaker.” Wallace & @FoxNews are on a bad path, watch!”
Pelosi recently has been sharply criticized for showcasing her gourmet ice cream while stalling the replenishment of the Small Business Administration’s emptied fund allocated to help businesses shuttered by the pandemic.
Wow! The elitism.
Nancy Pelosi is too busy doing an episode of MTV cribs showing off her $30k fridge & ice cream while millions of Americans are losing their jobs & businesses b/c she refuses to fund desperately needed #PPPloan funds #OpenUpAmericaAgain #CoronavirusLiar pic.twitter.com/QXV8Gv9oRM
