They say that Trump Derangement Syndrome isn’t a real disease, but there are circumstances where some doubt creeps in about that.
The barely-fictional affliction is characterized by flailing and rambling arguments about President Donald Trump, often accompanied by wild assertions about how the Commander in Chief is to blame for everything.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be having a flare-up of the disease, because she’s now blaming President Trump for hypothetical, future outbreaks of coronavirus that haven’t even happened yet.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused the Trump administration of responding “too late” to halt the possible spread of China’s deadly coronavirus in the United States.
“This is shameful,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked about the administration sending a $2.5 billion supplemental budget request to combat the illness. “He puts forth a proposal now that is meager, anemic in terms of addressing this. Ebola, we did $5 billion. And now they’re trying to take the Ebola money and spend it here.”
“What he’s doing is late, too late, anemic,” she added. “Hopefully, we can make up for the loss of time but we have to have professionals in place, resources that are adequate and not use scare tactics about people coming back to our country.”
Coronavirus fears have been low here in the United States, with only a few cases having slipped through onto the mainland.
President Trump said earlier this week that the virus was “under control” – an assertion that the CDC responded to by insinuating that the spread of the virus stateside was inevitable.
