Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi have both said that President Trump has blood on his hands over the coronavirus threat even though he bagan taking action against the epidemic in January. But, who really has blood on their hands? Both AOC and Nancy Pelosi shot videos where they asked people to crowd into the streets and eat at Chinese restaurants.
How many people caught the virus during their advertisement for Chinese food and the Democratic party and how many died as a result? Just how much blood do these two Democrats have on their hands? They were trying to use their videos to accuse Trump of racism for banning travel from China. Today, all the experts agree the disease would be much worse without the travel ban.

So much for social distancing. Both women encouraged people to flock together with an extremely contagious disease ravaging the country. I contend there is blood on their hands. President Trump warned about the coronavirus in his SOTU speech. That's the speech Pelosi tore up calling it all lies. So, who really didn't take the disease seriously?
“To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now. Eat your meals at home. If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
“What does ‘crowded’ mean? If you can’t stay 6ft away from other people, it’s too close. In general, when going outside try to stay at least 6 feet away from others as much as you possibly can.”
Now, if you were going to bars and not going to Chinese restaurants because you thought you would be more likely to catch coronavirus there than anywhere else, you may indeed be straight-up racist and you’re definitely straight-up imbecilic. What you needed to be told by your representative, however, wasn’t that it was high time you got you some kung pao chicken because Chinese establishments were feeling the pain.
March of 2020 was one of the fastest-moving months in history, one that began with Super Tuesday and ended with most of us in some form of lockdown.
All of us were terminally unprepared for what hit us. Even handicapping for that, I still can’t think of any four-day period in which things changed so appreciably that one could go from “why aren’t you out at your local Chinese joint, you privileged racist?” to “why are you even out of your home, millennial idiot?”
