Anti-LGBTQ, nutbag Lauren Boebert is on the House Oversight Committee with Rep Jamie Raskin…
During a hearing yesterday, Boebert began by accusing the US government of
colluding to cover up what China released … we want a government to put out truthful information.”
Rep. Jared Moskowitz reminded Boebert,
COVID did not start under the Biden administration. It was Donald Trump who closed businesses … closed schools … mandated masks … When we bring up COVID, we seem to have amnesia.”
You’re right. President Trump was in office when the COVID virus was released from a lab in China.
And he tried to make that very clear that this came from China, and reporters regularly dismissed that.”
Raskin (wearing a headscarf because he’s under going chemotherapy) had had it with Boebert at this point.
OK, two things, missy,
One is that Donald Trump on more than 20 different occasions defended the performance of the Chinese government, and specifically President Xi in terms of his treatment of COVID-19 and said he was doing a wonderful job and a great job.
So if there’s a problem with the Chinese government unleashing the virus, which has not been proven anywhere, but it certainly could be true, you would have to pin that on your favorite President, Donald Trump. Not on Joe Biden.
The second thing is President Trump’s own special advisor on COVID-19, Deborah Birx… and I’m sure you’ve read her book, said that the lethal recklessness of Donald Trump’s policies about Covid-19 cost Americans hundreds of thousands of lives.”
You don’t have to believe anybody on the Democratic side of the aisle.
That’s Donald Trump’s own special advisor on COVID-19.”
As one Twitter user commented,
If a person doesn’t have the facts, Jamie Raskin is not the person they want to debate.”
