(Tea Party PAC) – First there was the coronavirus that ruined the great economy built by President Trump and put millions of Americans on strict lockdowns prohibiting any kind of large gatherings. Then George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis and suddenly the left wasn’t concerned about the coronavirus anymore because, well, black lives matter.
Protests, rallies, and even rioting were totally fine with Dem leaders and many of them even went out and joined in on the action, standing shoulder-to-shoulder in massive crowds and sometimes without facemasks.
Now that the protests and riots have mostly quieted down, it appears the Democrats have swiftly renewed their concerns about the coronavirus again, saying large crowds are dangerous and should be prohibited. Could that be because President Trump is planning a rally in Oklahoma for which ticket requests have already reached over a million?
Surely not! That would be hypocritical and would mean the upstanding, always honest Democrats have double standards and that just couldn’t be!
Of course, we all know that is exactly the case. The latest leftie to put her double standards on dazzling display is none other than the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. She says Trump should not hold his rally because… coronavirus… but apparently when she attended a crowded protest none of that mattered.
On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) criticized President Trump by stating that gathering large numbers of people together without masks is “a dangerous thing at the time of a pandemic” and he should follow the science “to wear a mask and keep your distance and don’t gather in large numbers like that.”
Pelosi said, “I have three words to say to the president on that: science, science, and science. Science to not gather people in large numbers, in close proximity, without masks. [It’s] a dangerous thing at the time of a pandemic. Science to say we need testing, testing, testing.
Maybe Nancy forgot she had just attended a protest two weeks ago in an effort to pander and show “solidarity” (totally not for a photo op), as CNN reported:
Nancy Pelosi becomes the latest Democratic lawmaker to visit DC protests.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday visited protesters outside the US Capitol to show solidarity with demonstrations following the death of George Floyd while in police custody.
Pelosi, wearing a mask, was mostly greeted by applause, but there were some hecklers.
In a brief interview with CNN, Pelosi praised the move by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison on Wednesday to upgrade the charge against former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin, who had his knee pressed into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Chauvin is now facing a charge of second-degree murder and the other three officers who were at the scene are also facing criminal charges.
Asked about the White House’s contention that President Donald Trump’s visit to St. John’s Church, where he held a photo-op after federal law enforcement forced peaceful protesters from Lafayette Sqaure, was similar to President George W. Bush’s visit to New York after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill tour of London bombing damage during World War II, Pelosi replied, “I think they’re hallucinating.”
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Unless you’re a Democrat politician. Then it’s do as they say, not as they do.
The American people aren’t being fooled and that’s exactly why President Trump is having to search for a bigger venue for his rally.
