There have been a lot of reactions to the upsetting news that President Donald Trump tested positive for the Wuhan Coronavirus.
There were of course the horrible folks on the left who immediately said disgusting things. CNN being nasty and terrible. The inevitable conspiracy theories from the left. There were the folks who had more class, including Joe Biden who wished the president and the First Lady well.
Then there was the completely classless Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) whose first response was poor.
Nancy Pelosi, on Trump's positive COVID test: "Hopefully this will be a message to the rest of the country…you have to wear your mask."

Really, Nancy? Tell us more?

What a horrible human being.
But then she had an interview later in the day with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and her second response was even worse.
Speaker Pelosi says Pres. Trump’s behavior during pandemic “was a brazen invitation for something like this to happen,” adds that his positive test is "very sad" and that she's "nonetheless hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.” pic.twitter.com/mLHDag0kBe

Isn’t this the woman who encouraged people to go into crowds in Chinatown in February? And she has no idea how the president got it. He’s been getting tested everyday, as have the people to whom he is exposed. Isn’t this the same woman who’s still delaying aid to the American people? So please just stow it.
On top of all that, media has just been salivating about the line of succession and thinking about the various perambulations through which Pelosi might get the Presidency, with both real and completely ridiculous scenarios. So they asked her about it.

Seriously are they so desperate at this point?
What is she talking about is a “relic of the past?” The vice presidency? Is she kidding? And she talks about testing and other things as though the government hasn’t done any of that when they have. The president getting sick isn’t an excuse to push your political agenda, but she’s still doing it, as are the media.
No, leftists, there’s virtually no way that she succeeds barring a major catastrophe that takes out Trump and Vice President Mike Pence at the same time. Because if Pence were to succeed Trump, he would immediately nominate a Vice Presidential choice. That person would have to be confirmed by both houses of Congress.
