Host Accuses Democrats of Politicising Coronavirus Against Trump
“Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s criticism of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak on Thursday.
Speaking with on fox News’s “Hannity,” Levin said:
“I watch this, and I realize there’s a lot of stupid people on TV.”
“The last people I want playing doctor with me or the American people are Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi,” he stated.
Levin, who read off a fact sheet, listed the actions taken by Trump to combat the outbreak, debunking the Democrats’ argument that the White House has not done enough.
“There’s no CDC cuts. There’s been [funding] increases,” Levin began.
“Certain individuals have been quarantined by this president — the first time a U.S. president has done that in over half a century,” he added.
“The White House coronavirus task force was appointed over a month ago,” Levin pointed out.
“The president temporarily suspended entry into the United States.”
Levin then claimed that, while they busied themselves with his impeachment trial, Trump and his team worked to contain the virus.
“From January 16 to February 5, the United States Senate was paralyzed by the House Democrats and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with this outrageous impeachment trial where the Senators had to sit on their hands, shut their mouths and couldn’t pass any business,” Levin explained.
“They couldn’t address the coronavirus because Pelosi and Schumer shut down the Congress,” he added.
“They don’t want to talk about that, do they?”
Levin also weighed in on the 2020 Democratic field.

“The Democrats, they go to the microphone, and they attack. They don’t know anything,” he said.
“What is their plan?” he asked.
“What is the Schumer-Pelosi-[Bernie] Sanders – [Amy] Klobuchar- [Michael] Bloomberg, whatever plans? They have great plans for containment. Open borders, eliminate ICE, no vetting of foreigners, sanctuary cities, nationalize and destroy the greatest healthcare system, destroy our pharmaceutical companies … that will come up with the solutions? “
“The answers won’t come from the liberals and the Democrats,” Levin concluded.
“Which is why they attack.”
Trump himself blasted Pelosi, accusing her of trying to create “panic” over the coronavirus to give herself a “political advantage.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Pelosi accused the Trump administration of responding “too late” to halt the possible spread of China’s deadly coronavirus in the United States.
“This is shameful,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked about the administration sending a $2.5 billion supplemental budget request to combat the illness.
