Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley ripped into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the Democrat called COVID-19 the “Trump virus.”
Haley Blasts Pelosi Over Her ASSanine Remarks
Also acting as a former governor of South Caroline, Haley tweeted a response to Pelosi’s ridiculous use of words.
On Wednesday, Haley 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.”

Pelosi the Hypocrite
Haley has taken on Pelosi before over her many false and hypocritical remarks.
In 2019, the House Speaker tweeted, “We have a moral responsibility to protect God’s creation for generations to come. That is why today, we named members to the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. #ActOnClimate.”
Pointing out sheer hypocrisy, Haley combated, “Does God’s creation not include protecting babies as well, Madame Speaker? A committee on that issue would be welcome.”

Pro-Abortionists Attack Haley
Being a pro-life advocate, Haley has faced immense backlash from liberals and the United States’ largest abortion supplier, Planned Parenthood.
When President Trump announced he was choosing her to be the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. there was a huge outcry from those who stunt to murder unborn babies.
Planned Parenthood aired its grievances:
“As a leading women’s health care provider and advocate in the United States and globally, Planned Parenthood is deeply troubled by the nomination of Governor Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the United Nations. Ambassador to the United Nations plays a critical role representing the United States on the global stage and advocating for the interests of women and girls worldwide, among other marginalized communities. It is very concerning to see a candidate with a notable lack of international experience coupled with a long track record of attacking women’s health in South Carolina, including having recently signed an extreme anti-abortion law opposed by the medical community. …”
During an interview with CNN on Tuesday, host Wolf Blitzer made asked Pelosi a COVID related question.
“We have lots to discuss, but let me start with the president’s news conference he just had on the pandemic. He encouraged people to go ahead and wear a mask. He admitted that things will get worse before they get better. He said, eventually, it’s going to disappear. How far do you think all that goes in addressing this crisis that’s still killing hundreds of Americans every single day?” Wolf 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.”
“Well, what do you mean when you say ‘the Trump virus?’” Blitzer pressed.
Coronavirus Continues to be Politicized
“The Trump virus,” said Pelosi. “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.”

The coronavirus has been politicized from the very beginning and Pelosi’s distasteful remarks show just that.
