Liberals lie like rugs and the case of DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be Named) is no exception.
They claim that President Trump did not take DTMNBN seriously, but as a matter of fact, the president spoke of DTMNBN in his February 4th State of the Union speech.
And before that, he issued his first travel ban against people coming here from China. On January 31st, President Trump announced the ban, which Democrats attacked viciously as racist.
But keeping out people from countries with the virus seems to have prevented the epidemic from being far worse.
Today, the ban criticized by Democrats is widely accepted as being beneficial to the country even by the same Democrats who criticized the president.
After Trump’s SOTU speech, Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of the speech, but I’m sure she’ll get over that when she becomes more mature. Had she read it maybe the House would have pursued the DTMNBN instead of the all-consuming fake impeachment.
President Trump was actually ahead of the curve and it’s the Democrats who were caught flat-footed.
During Fiscal Year 2019, an average of more than 14,000 people traveled to the United States from China each day, via both direct and indirect flights. The United States Government is unable to effectively evaluate and monitor all of the travelers continuing to arrive from China. The potential for widespread transmission of the virus by infected individuals seeking to enter the United States threatens the security of our transportation system and infrastructure and the national security.
Given the importance of protecting persons within the United States from the threat of this harmful communicable disease, I have determined that it is in the interests of the United States to take action to restrict and suspend the entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of all aliens who were physically present within the People’s Republic of China, excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States.
And what was Pelosi doing on January 31? She was busy with two things: condemning Trump’s travel ban that he had instituted three years before, and much more importantly for her, issuing a statement calling Senate Republicans “accomplices to the President’s cover-up,” and chortling that Trump was impeached forever, stating, “The President was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He is impeached forever.”
