The Democrats are using all their resources to politicize the Wuhan coronavirus.
Their most powerful weapon is so-called mainstream media propaganda.
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi destroyed her credibility in one shocking CNN interview.
Nancy Pelosi appeared on Jake Tapper’s CNN to perform damage control after the Trump campaign released a brutally effective ad against her.
During an appearance on late-nite host James Corden’s show, Pelosi had laughed about her love for expensive ice cream that was stocked in her $24,000 refrigerator.
Meanwhile, Pelosi was delaying loans to small businesses.
The ad gave Pelosi the moniker Nancy Antoinette, which certainly seems appropriate.
She’s one of the wealthiest members of congress in one of the wealthiest districts.
The optics were terrible.
Surprisingly, Pelosi dug an even deeper hole.
On Jake Tapper’s show, Pelosi reversed herself on Donald Trump’s travel ban with China.
She even made the argument that it didn’t go far enough because American citizens and green card holders were allowed to repatriate.
People on social media were quick to point out that Pelosi was willing to ban Americans from entering the country, yet had recently argued it was immoral to keep out illegal aliens in the midst of the pandemic.
Nancy is angry that POTUS didn’t “shut the door” on Americans stranded abroad during a global pandemic but she wants to open our southern border to illegals. https://t.co/PdBycGsmCk

It gets even worse for Pelosi.
Congressman Dan Crenshaw pointed out that Pelosi was attempting to pass the No Ban Act after Trump’s travel restrictions with China.
Pelosi’s positions are truly insane.
She’s arguing that travel restrictions in the throes of a global pandemic are “xenophobic” and “racist” and should not be enacted, but Americans shouldn’t be let back into the country, and also illegal aliens should be let into the country.
It’s impossible to hold those positions all at once.
If big media weren’t intertwined with the Democrat Party, someone like Tapper would actually call out this ridiculous inconsistency.
Instead Tapper just nodded along and let Pelosi spew her propaganda.
In the run-up to the general election in November, Democrats are trying to position themselves as China hawks, which is laughable.
They’ve spent years calling Trump “racist” for his tough negotiations with China, now they’re trying to outflank him on the right.
Only an unprincipled party with a giant media apparatus behind them would try something so bold and nonsensical.
The Democrats now realize the threat of China, and they’re hoping they can convince the American people they will be firm with China, but nobody believes that.
Pelosi would sell out the American people to China in the snap of a finger.
