She deserved what she got.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley tore apart Nancy Pelosi recently after Pelosi referred to the coronavirus as the “Trump virus.”
Haley went onto Twitter and tweeted, “It is a new low for Pelosi to refer to the Trump Virus. She didn’t require masks in her committees until mid June & opposed the China travel ban. The only one to blame for this virus is China. Many have died. We should be unified on that front, not playing political games with it.”

Haley was referring to when Pelosi was interviewed on CNN by Wolf Blitzer when she said, “Well, I think with the president’s comments today, he recognized the mistakes that he has made by now embracing mask-wearing and the recognition this is not a hoax,” Pelosi replied. “It is a pandemic that has gotten worse before it will get better because of his inaction, and, in fact, clearly, it is the Trump virus.”
Blitzer then asked, “Well, what do you mean when you say ‘the Trump virus?”
Pelosi simply said, “The Trump virus” and continued saying, “If they — if he had said months ago, let’s wear masks, let’s not — let’s socially distance, instead of having rallies and political, whatever they were, then more people would have followed his lead – he’s the President of the United States – instead of being a bad example, making it like a manhood thing, not to wear a mask. So, in any event, it was weird because a briefing on the coronavirus should be about science, and that is something the president has ignored. It should be about governance, and now, he’s finally embracing, saying, ‘Okay, it’s okay to wear a mask.’ So, I think a good deal of what we have suffered is clearly the Trump virus.”
After this interview, Haley’s attack on Pelosi was definitely warranted. Read the whole story here.
