Whoa: Dems Angry after Pelosi Rejects Trump’s $1.8 Trillion COVID Relief Offer

Even Democrats are getting annoyed with Nancy Pelosi’s games

After President Trump offered Democrats a $1.8 Trillion coronavirus relief package which included $1,200 stimulus checks and expanded unemployment benefits, House Speaker Pelosi swiftly rejected the deal prompting a backlash from members of her own party.

The Daily Mail points out:

Andrew Yang, a former presidential candidate, tweeted on Saturday: ‘Nancy Pelosi take this deal! Put politics aside people are hurting.’

Dan Pfeiffer, the co-host of the left-leaning podcast ‘Pod Save America’, tweeted: ‘While there are potential risks, Democrats should aggressively pursue a COVID Relief deal with Trump.

‘It’s the right thing to do, but politics can also work in our favor.’

California Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna wrote on Twitter: ‘People in need can’t wait until February,

‘1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice the Obama stimulus. It will allow Biden to start with infrastructure.

‘Obama won in 08 by doing the right thing on TARP instead of what was expedient. Make a deal & put the ball in McConnell court.’

In an email to Democrat colleagues, Pelosi explains that she rejected the plan because it didn’t include a strategy to “crush the virus.”

‘This proposal amounted to one step forward, two steps back,’ Pelosi wrote.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin along with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows agreed to continue talks with Schumer and Pelosi in order to reach an agreement on the relief bill.

With so many not able to work or properly run their businesses because of strict lockdowns, especially in Democrat-controlled cities and states, this rejection of a relief package by Pelosi is another slap in the face by hypocritical Democrats.

The American people deserve a better House Speaker than an out-of-touch hypocrite who rejects deals to help the country and then gets to go home to their ivory tower where they enjoy their $13-a-pint ice cream from a $24,000 refrigerator.

175 Doctors Send Letters to Debate Commission, Say in-Person Trump-Biden Debate Should Go On

Docs feel it would be safe for Trump to debate Biden in person this Thursday as originally scheduled

At least 175 physicians have sent letters to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) saying they feel it would be safe for President Trump to debate Vice President Joe Biden in person this Thursday as originally scheduled.

Last week, the commission announced it would cancel the event after their surprise announcement that they would hold a virtual debate due to President Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis was rightfully met with criticism from the Trump campaign and Republicans. In a press release, the CPD said, “It is now apparent there will be no debate on October 15, and the CPD will turn its attention to preparations for the final presidential debate scheduled for October 22.”

The New York Post has learned that doctors from across the country have written the debate commission who explain that an in-person debate can and should be held safely this week.

“I am a family medicine physician who has treated many COVID patients, both in hospital and in the outpatient setting. I am requesting that the Commission reverse its decision and hold an in-person debate,” wrote Dr. Joseph T. Dougherty, of Pittsburgh.

“Based on science, data, and epidemiology, the debate can, and should, be held safely in person and it is essential to do so,” he wrote.

Another physician, Dr. Jacqueline Koski, wrote, “I am a board-certified family medicine physician and additionally hold a Masters in Public Health. Regarding the upcoming presidential debate, according to the current scientific knowledge regarding Covid transmission, there should be no concern whatsoever about holding a debate with proper precautions in place.”

The NY Post reports:

Many of the doctors cited guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which states that a person infected with COVID-19 can safely be around other people 10 days after their symptoms first appeared.

…Dr. Sean Conley, the physician to the president, cleared Trump to return to public engagements on Saturday after completing treatment for COVID-19 and Trump has already scheduled a White House event on Saturday and a Florida rally on Monday.

WATCH: Insane Moment Dem Senator Asks Amy Coney Barrett if She Ever Sexually Assaulted Someone

I wonder if Sen. Hirono would ever ask these questions of the notoriously “handsy” Vice President Joe Biden?

Just when you thought today’s Senate questioning of Amy Coney Barrett by Democrats couldn’t get any more ridiculous, Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono actually asked the Supreme Court nominee—a Catholic mother of seven children—if she ever sexually assaulted someone.

Hirono began her ludicrous questions by citing a 2017 interview with Chief Justice John Roberts where he stated the judiciary is “not immune” from issues of sexual assault.

The senator said to “ensure the fitness” for any nominee to a lifetime appointment, she asks each appointee two questions.
“Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors, or committed any physical or verbal harassment or assault of a sexual nature?” Hirono asked.

“No, Senator Hirono,” Barrett responded.

“Have you ever faced discipline or entered into a settlement related to this kind of conduct?” Hirono then asked.
“No, Senator,” Barrett said.

The Daily Caller points out that Hirono previously announced in 2018 that she would ask all Supreme Court nominees these questions.
In a January 2018 tweet, Hirono wrote, “Starting today, I’m asking nominees to our courts, under oath, whether or not they have a history of sexual assault or harassment. Like in other industries, our judges are in positions of power & #TimesUp.”
