At a time in which our nation is otherwise coming together, there are several individuals within the political sphere who just can’t seem to get with the program.
In an effort to battle the current COVID-19 pandemic, teamwork is of the utmost importance. We are being asked to practice “social distancing” in order to slow the spread of this deadly virus, as the real danger of COVID-19 is its contagiousness.
To win, we must starve the virus, and we cannot do that in a nation divided.
That’s why comments such as those uttered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter are so disturbing.
Christine Pelosi, a political strategist and daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is under fire over a tweet that appears to endorse the 2017 assault of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., after the lawmaker revealed he tested positive for the coronavirus.
Paul’s announcement this past Sunday that he had contracted the virus led some other GOP lawmakers to self-quarantine, including Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.
Washington Post congressional reporter Paul Kane echoed Romney’s concerns about contracting the virus because of his wife, Ann Romney, who has multiple sclerosis.
“He told us the other day his biggest personal concern was not getting this because his wife has MS. Now he can’t see her for almost 2 weeks,” Kane tweeted.
“Rand Paul’s neighbor was right,” Christine Pelosi reacted Sunday evening.
Paul had earlier come under fire for even being tested for the virus, given how scarce testing kits have been and the fact that he had been displaying no symptoms. The Kentucky Senator later explained that he was forced to have a piece of his lung removed after the assault by his neighbor, thus putting him in an “at-risk” population with preexisting conditions.
