This from the woman who held up the Senate relief bill with extraneous demands that she wanted included, and who distracted the White House with a partisan impeachment that led to a trial as the crisis ramped up.
President Trump’s initial reaction to the virus was slow and disjointed. An acolyte Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and the “power of positive thinking,” his natural sense of optimism got the best of him.
But now he is showing leadership and even getting praise from Democratic governors, and Pelosi should be casting aside partisanship at a moment when genuine unity is needed.
Pelosi has already called for an investigation into Trump’s early handling of the crisis. Teeing up another impeachment? We will have to wait until early next year to find out.
Trump reacted angrily to Pelosi’s comment, calling her a “sick puppy.” He said: “Well you know, it’s a sad thing. Look, she’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She’s got a lot of problems and that’s a horrible thing to say.”
