FLASHBACK: Watch Nancy Pelosi Completely Ignore Trump’s Coronavirus Comments During SOTU Speech

A video circulating on social media shows House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemingly ignoring President Donald Trump as he discusses the coronavirus during his February 4th State of the Union address.

The video was shared by Steve Guest, Rapid Response Director for the Republican National Committee.

Guest describes Pelosi’s actions during the clip as ‘zoning out.’

Did She Zone Out?

While it is difficult to ascertain what is going on in Pelosi’s head as the President speaks, it’s quite clear she’s doing everything BUT paying attention to what he is saying.

She’s fidgeting with papers, checking notes, reading excerpts, and even staring at somebody or something off to her right.

What she’s not doing is listening to President Trump say the following:

Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases.  We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China.  My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.

And knowing Pelosi had been planning to rip up the President’s speech like a petty and petulant child all along, it’s hard not to assume that is what was on her mind at the time.

Who Ignored The Threat?

That clip is pretty damning considering two things.

One, Pelosi has accused President Trump of denying the seriousness of the pandemic.

“The president’s denial at the beginning was deadly,” the House speaker told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “His delay in getting equipment to where it’s needed is deadly … As the President fiddles, people are dying.”

This video literally shows Pelosi fiddling while the President tells all of Congress and the world that he is taking the threat quite seriously, taking steps to try and protect the American people, and even working with the Chinese government to stop the spread.

And two, the clip serves as a reminder that while the President was busy working for the American people, Democrats were focused on other things. Other things like the shiny, red object known as impeachment.

Lying Pelosi

Whatever she’s doing in the aforementioned clip, it’s quite clear Pelosi is lying and trying to deflect blame on President Trump.

While she and her Democrat colleagues ‘fiddled,’ the administration from the onset did the following:

  • January 6: The CDC issued a travel notice for Wuhan, China due to coronavirus.
  • January 7: The CDC established a coronavirus incident management system to better share and respond to information about the virus.
  • January 8: The CDC issued an advisory to “state and local health departments and health care providers” regarding coronavirus.
  • January 11: The CDC issued a “Level I Travel Health Notice” for Wuhan, China.

What was Pelosi doing? She was ordering commemorative impeachment pens for her friends to celebrate bogging down the entire country with their little political games.

“There’s something wrong with the woman,” Trump recently said of the House Speaker. “She focused on impeachment, and she lost, and she looked like a fool.”

“She’s a sick puppy in my opinion.”
