Obama Knocks Trump – Ted Cruz Fires Back

Yesterday it was reported that the Trump administration had relaxed gas mileage and emissions requirements for auto manufacturers.

While these regulations were just regular government red tape, leftists predictably attacked the administration over climate change concerns.

Former President Obama took a shot at Trump, tweeting: “We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”

But Senator Ted Cruz took Obama’s tweet and used it to attack Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi in return, firing back: “Bold: Obama calls for the overwhelming electoral defeat of Joe Biden & Nancy Pelosi, after they opposed & demagogued Trump’s China travel ban, which helped slow the coronavirus pandemic.”

Boom.

And Cruz is absolutely correct about Democrats opposing the actions Trump took to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Biden attacked Trump at a campaign event,  saying, “In moments like this, this is where the credibility of a president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, to uh, and fear mongering.”

And as late as March 10th, the House Democrats had a Pelosi-supported bill on the floor called the “No Ban Act,” which aimed to rescind Trump’s travel ban. That’s the same ban that Dr. Fauci  credited with slowing the spread of the Wuhan virus in the U.S.

It really is astonishing how little self-awareness these people have – but perhaps that’s what makes them perfect for politics.
