Pelosi Views Protests Against Shutdown ‘Largely As a Distraction’ By Susan Jones for CNS News
GNN Note – Because our God given protected under the Constitution Rights are nothing more than a distraction to the leftist agenda. They could care less about you and me.
As protests erupt across the country — Americans demanding the return of their liberty and their livelihoods — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is dismissing the protests as “a distraction.”
“I wouldn’t exaggerate the protests across the country,” Pelosi told ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos:
There are some in some places, largely where there’s a Democratic governor. But I think of it largely as a distraction and the president’s embrace of it as a distraction from the fact that he has not appropriately done testing, treatment, contact tracing, and quarantine.
So — but just to move on from that, the — that’s why we want the small businesses to thrive, and that’s why that was such an important part of the CARES package, so that we could — that is the lifeblood of our economy, the creation of jobs, the creation of capital and the rest.
But again, the key that opens the door to the economy is testing, testing, testing. We haven’t done it right. If, as Dr. Fauci says, if we proceed the right way, then we can do that. But we haven’t.
Pelosi said the American people “understand that we have to have a scientific, evidence-based approach to how we go forward, because we can’t just go out there and then find out that we went out too soon. And that has to be calibrated, scientifically based, not politically based, or as a distraction to how we should go forward.”
Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi, “What’s your best sense right now of when we’re going to get back to some semblance of normal here in the United States? I noticed one of your California Mayors, Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, said no big crowd events until 2021. Do you agree with that?”
