Nancy Pelosi said Sunday morning that people protesting lockdowns are a ‘distraction’ from the real threats of coronavirus, claiming she doesn’t understand why they are against stay-at-home orders, which most states have been enforcing for a month now as the main way to stop the spread of the virus is to “shelter in place.”
Pelosi said the real answer is “Testing. Tracing. Treatment. Shelter in place. But, you know, people will do what they do.”
when the main way to stop the spread of the virus is to “shelter in place.”
“That is really the answer,” Pelosi said. “Testing. Tracing. Treatment. Shelter in place.
“But, you know, people will do what they do. The fact is, we’re all impatient. We all want out. But what they’re doing is really unfortunate.”
Pelosi in an interview ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning, however, said she wouldn’t exaggerate the protests.” There are some in some places, largely where there’s a Democratic governor. But I think of it largely as a distraction and the president’s embrace of it as a distraction from the fact that he has not appropriately done testing, treatment, contact tracing, and quarantine,”
