Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) said she believes President Trump’s response to the coronavirus is “akin to war crimes.”
Pressley made the remarks during a virtual press conference on Facebook, a social media entity that at least pretends to be cracking down on misinformation.
“As far as I’m concerned what’s happening with this administration, it’s akin to war crimes,” the wildly misinformed congresswoman stated. “Criminal negligence, science denial, a sluggish response.”
Her statement leaves little doubt that the radical Left truly does believe that Trump is responsible for the deaths of those who succumbed to a virus that originated in China.
How mind-numbingly low can they possibly sink?
More Reckless Democrat Rhetoric in a Time of Global Crisis https://t.co/wQHdZKn43x

All They Have Is Insane Rhetoric
Pressley went on to suggest now is the time to capitalize on the pandemic to help implement the Left’s radical agenda.
“We find ourselves in the position of playing catch up in the midst of a pandemic,” she said, seemingly unaware that the curve has been successfully flattened in most parts of the country. “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 concluded.
Ignorance Is a Crime
If a sluggish response is “akin to a war crime” then the Democratic party Pas a lot of blood on its own hands.
While the resistance party was plotting impeachment for months, President Trump was setting up a coronavirus task force, ordering more testing and ventilators, restricting travel from countries known to be battling the virus, and declaring a national emergency.
Well after all of these actions had been taken, Pressley declined to attend Trump’s State of the Union address – in which he warned about the pending coronavirus crisis!
That is negligence.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell observed that the Democrats’ impeachment sham “diverted the attention of the government” away from focusing on important matters at hand.
That didn’t stop the president from saving lives, as Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said the travel ban did.
“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States,” Fauci said.
Any idea what Pressley and the Democrats were doing then?
They were actively pursuing the ‘No Ban Act‘ which was designed to restrict the president’s authority in implementing new travel bans.
They were trying to prevent the President of the United States from saving lives during a pandemic.
Which of these people sound more like they’ve taken actions “akin to war crimes”?
