Have Pigs Started To Fly? Rep Omar Praises WHO?!
Rep Ilhan Omar did something perhaps even more shocking than her past statements, she praised Trump for his efforts to fight the coronavirus and keep us all safe. That's pretty amazing for a freshman Dem, considering they usually find fault with practically everything the president does.
Rep Ilhan Omar took to Twitter to praise the president. She first retweeted and commented on a tweet from Lee Fang that explained what Trump has done for Americans before her compliments to the president.
"Trump suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, now invoking the Defense Production Act to force private firms to produce needed supplies is incredible. Kind of a shell shock for anyone who reported on any economic policies in the Obama years."
Omar commented about it:
"Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time."
But Omar was not done.
"@AyannaPressley always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now. I have faith that we will survive this as a nation and build together."
"Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy. This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now."
This is amazing considering the source.
"Her praise for the president was matched this week by other Democrats and left-of-center commentators. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on Tuesday, told reporters, “His team is on it. They’ve been responsive. ... I want to say thank you.” And, CNN's Dana Bash asserted that Trump's new tone on the coronavirus made him the "kind of leader that people need."
On Wednesday, Trump invoked rarely used emergency powers to marshal critical medical supplies against the coronavirus pandemic. Trump tapped his authority under the 70-year-old Defense Production Act to give the government more power to steer production by private companies and try to overcome shortages in masks, ventilators and other supplies.
Describing himself as a “wartime president” fighting an invisible enemy, the president also signed an aid package — which the Senate approved earlier Wednesday — that will guarantee sick leave to workers who fall ill."
If this keeps up maybe we may even see more bipartisan politics and less hate Trump hate in the MSM, but I could be getting ahead of myself here.
