Pelosi Criticizes Trump After He Tells People to ‘Liberate’ Certain States

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is weighing in on President Donald Trump’s latest criticism of governors — namely the Democratic governors.

In multiple states, where coronavirus cases are more widespread than others, people are protesting and demanding stay-at-home orders be lifted. In multiple tweets on Friday, the president also encouraged people to “liberate” those states.

When asked about the situation on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Pelosi urged Americans not to “take the bait.” She also believes this is one of Trump’s tactics to “delay in dealing with” the coronavirus response efforts.

“I won’t take the bait,” Pelosi said on Friday evening. “This is another example of the distraction that they want to make from the fact that the President has said that this pandemic was a hoax, and that’s not true.  That the President said it will magically disappear, that’s not true.”

She continued, “Again and again, he was in denial and delay in dealing with this.  This is just a distraction.  Don’t fall for that.  Don’t take the bait.”

See Pelosi’s remarks below:

Pelosi went on to discuss what she believes is the problem with Trump’s coronavirus response efforts — lack of factual scientific evidence and data to make sound decisions.

The California lawmaker, who recently penned a note about the importance of truth and testing, also criticized Trump’s leadership insisting that “delaying and denial” have led to a “deadly” outcome.

She said, “I think delaying and denial were deadly. I think they cost lives.”

Pelosi noted that she is speaking out because the American people deserve the truth.

“The reason I’m speaking out and I sent a letter to my colleagues, which I’m overwhelmed by the response I’ve received nationally and from my colleagues, about insisting on the truth is let’s not continue on a path of misrepresentation and falsehoods.”

Pelosi went on to discuss the types of testing needed to definitively plan for reopening the economy.

“Let’s get right to the science, the evidence, the data, and facts. And that’s what we have in our proposal on hospitals, is hopefully, to have testing with the data collection on how racial differences are revealed in getting the facts and the data. That’s so important. And contact tracing, so that we can, once we know who might be infected, what contacts he or she may have had with other people and their own families and the rest.”

Pelosi’s interview follows reports about Trump’s tweets and his defense of his remarks during Friday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

The president came under fire for tweets that encouraged residents in multiple states to “liberate” those states with Democratic governors, including Virginia, Minnesota, and Michigan.

When asked about the tweets, Trump said that he saw no problem with people protesting despite them disregarding social distancing guidelines which could increase the spread of the virus.

As of Saturday morning, there are over 706,000 coronavirus cases in the U.S., with more than 37,000 deaths.

  1. Rodney : you asked why I call the president THE MURDERING PSYCHOPATH .

    I do so because he is a textbook psychopath whose irresponsibility and self absorbed personality disorder have led directly to the deaths of nearly 44,000 and the infection of nearly 800,000 Americans from the Covid-19 virus.

    His actions and non actions have made the USA number 1 in both infections and deaths from the virus in the entire world.

  2. I would really like to know, and not the MSM version of it, but all of the so called deaths that have really been caused by the virus!!!!!!! I have read somewhere that some of the state governor’s have said that no matter how a person has died, it was because of the virus!!!!!! PURE BULLSHITE!!!!!!!

  3. In every period of history a Benedict Arnold appears. POS Pelosi is one of them. It easy to see that all she know how to do is play politics. If she truly cared about America and Americans she would spend far less time attacking Trump and focusing on real issues. Something that she has a hard time doing because her hatred of Trump is so deep. Don’t be deceived, democrats really don’t care about anything other than regaining control. If they do than America is in huge trouble. Trump ain’t perfect but to put a career politcian in the presidency right now is a huge mistake.

  4. THE MURDERING PSYCHOPATH PRESIDENT just being himself. With him money is always way more important than people. Especially his stupid supporters.

    1. John; why do you call President Trump, “THE MUDERING PSYCHOPATH PRESIDENT” ????????

  5. Dear Leader is dangerous.

    Do you think for one second that his fascism won’t get worse when he KNOWS that he won’t be in office any more, whether after this November or November 2024?

    Count on it. He has promoted violence in different ways ever since he started running. He isn’t going to stop now nor will he let a little thing like not being in office stop him, either. Fascist.

    1. Trump in 2020 to KAG and continue draining the sewer of the Socialist rabble in D.C. Unfortunate for the real Americans here that Trump has no power to drain IJR.

      1. You are confused, Confused James The Projectionist.

        King Donald The Loser has not drained the swamp, as he promised that he would. No, he has restocked it with the worst kind of leaches that he could find. He not only did not clean up our politics, but he has made it far, far worse.

        If you can’t understand this very simple concept, then you are confused beyond believe.

  6. WHEN was Piglosi ever interested in the FACTS about anything? How many times has she criticized Trump over the past 3 1/2 years and been proven WRONG each time? Her attempts to continue dividing the Nation with her constant LYING is only a distraction which only illustrates her stupidity as a D’RAT parrot.

    1. It is unfortunate that Confused James The Projectionist has no comprehension of just how bad King Donald The Loser is for this country. He is also dangerous to the safety of our citizens, in more than one way, too.

      Maybe some day you will understand all of this.

      1. I am always looking for FACTS. To date, you have not been able to provide anything but your usually addled bullshit. Your typical BS doesn’t correlate with the facts, actions, agenda or achievements of this great President. Maybe you should come out of your parents’ basement, put on a pair of big boy pants and face reality. You may then begin to see the light; but doubtful.

        1. Confused James The Projectionist has no idea what a fact looks like. Any that he was ever given was thrown into King Donald The Loser’s swamp.

          1. You spout opinion as fact, and say that other people don’t know what facts look like?

          2. Scottie, you spout bullshite!!!!! President Trump said that he would billed the wall, WHO as fought him tooth and nail at every turn?????? YOUR AUNT OR MAYBE YOUR GRANDMA, PIG FASE POLISE!!!!!!!! I also will take a wild guess and say that you did not WATCH the SOTU SPEECH where she tore it up and called it a bunch of lies!!!!!! FACT BUCKOO, IT WAS ALL THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE, WHERE SHE TORE IT UP AND THEN SAID IT WAS ALL LIES!!!!!!!! So there is a fact the you can not call a lie!!!!!!

          3. Scottie, you spout bullshite!!!!! President Trump said that he would billed the wall, WHO as fought him tooth and nail at every turn?????? YOUR AUNT OR MAYBE YOUR GRANDMA, PIG FASE POLISE!!!!!!!! I also will take a wild guess and say that you did not WATCH the SOTU SPEECH where she tore it up and called it a bunch of lies!!!!!! FACT BUCKOO, IT WAS ALL THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE, WHERE SHE TORE IT UP AND THEN SAID IT WAS ALL LIES!!!!!!!! So there is a fact the you can not call a lie!!!!!! But just like all the dim wits that hate the PRESIDENT, you fall right in with them and you comments!!

      2. All the most prolific crazies love to challenge people to put on big boy pants and liberate themselves from their parents’ basement. Makes menwonder what their life experiences have been.

        1. Trust me. I won’t be going anywhere near Confused James The Projectionist’s basement. No way.

      3. All the most prolific crazies love to challenge people to put on bigger pants and liberate themselves from their parents’ basement. Makes me wonder what their life experiences have been.

  7. trumpuke, THE MURDERING PSYCHOPATH, has been consistently proving that he is a complete butt hole throughout his totally self serving response to the pandemic.

    1. Have any FACTS to support your asinine vitriol? Didn’t think so. Just more of your HATE AMERICA bullshit. Grow up. You could become class President of your kindergarten class in 5 or 10 years (or being excused from class to go vote in Nov. 2020).

  8. trumpuke has been consistently proving that he is a complete phuhking butt hole throughout his totally self serving response to the pandemic.

    1. Have any FACTS or just more of your usual spoon fed bullshit to criticize a great President?

      1. All one needs to do is open one’s eye, to see how incompetent and dangerous King Donald The Loser is. But you have to actually be objective for this to work. Being part of Cult-45 is antithetical to that.

        1. MY eyes are wide open to the problems being created by the Socialist/Fascist scum in America. ALL one has to do is look at the continuing efforts by the Fascist leaders (Pelosi, Schumer, et al) and the rest of the Obstructionist Party parasites to block everything this President is trying to do for America. Their only objective is to follow Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” to gain the POWER and CONTROL they’ll need over everything in our lives. If YOU can’t see the demise of the United States and its’ Constitution headed our way under a Socialist dictator, you’re considerably dumber than you look. POTUS Trump SAVED the United States from the Kenyan Marxist’s hatred of America; but apparently Barry’s puppets enjoyed his regressive agenda. The US could very well become another Venezuela IF voters reject progressive achievements under the GOP for an authoritarian Socialist. There’s no other intelligent choice than to vote straight GOP in ALL future elections.

          1. Confused James The Loser eagerly demonstrates how his nickname works again.

            He purposely conflates socialist with fascist on a regular basis on IJR, two opposites on the political spectrum. Don’t trust me? Good. Look them up.

            King Donald The Loser desperately wants to become more dictatorial and fascist (“Only I can fix it.” “The President’s power is total.”)

            We got rid of our king hundred’s of years ago, but people like Confused James The Projectionist and Cult-45 want a new king. Beware of these people because they are dangerous to our country’s survival.
