Some are born mad, some achieve madness, and some have madness thrust upon ’em. It doesn’t really matter which way she became nuts—Maxine Waters is just plain crazy. mad Maxine Trump economy
On Wednesday, Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and thoroughly debunked conspiracy theories involving Russia, issued a tweet full of lies, fake news, and conspiracy theories that bear absolutely no resemblance to the truth.
“Trump doesn’t care about the 80,000+ people who’ve died from #Coronavirus! He only wants to open up the economy so he can go back to having his white power pep rallies! The death & economic devastation we are facing is b/c Trump failed to act early & called #COVID19 a HOAX,” she screeched on Twitter.

Of course, everything she said is a lie. For starters, Trump NEVER called the virus a hoax, but apparently, Waters is either a liar or simply too crazy to even care that that claim has been thoroughly debunked (or both). mad Maxine Trump economy
As for acting early, Trump administration was taking measures in January while Waters and her fellow co-conspirators were engaged in a sham impeachment coup. Here’s a timeline. Starting in January, the administration had already taken many actions to fight the spread of the virus. Including:
- January 6: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a travel notice for Wuhan, China due to the spreading coronavirus.
- January 7: The CDC established a coronavirus incident management system to better share and respond to information about the virus.
- January 11: The CDC issued a Level I travel health notice for Wuhan, China.
- January 16: The impeachment trial in the Senate begins.
- January 17: The CDC began implementing public health entry screening at the 3 U.S. airports that received the most travelers from Wuhan – San Francisco, New York JFK, and Los Angeles.
- January 20: Dr. Fauci announces the National Institutes of Health is already working on the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus.
- January 21: The CDC activated its emergency operations center to provide ongoing support to the coronavirus response.
- January 23: The CDC sought a “special emergency authorization” from the FDA to allow states to use its newly developed coronavirus test.
- January 27: The CDC issued a level III travel health notice urging Americans to avoid all nonessential travel to China due to the coronavirus.
- January 29: The White House announced the formation of the Coronavirus Task Force to help monitor and contain the spread of the virus and provide updates to the President.
- January 31: The Trump Administration: Declared the coronavirus a public health emergency. Announced Chinese travel restrictions. Suspended entry into the United States for foreign nationals who pose a risk of transmitting the coronavirus. The Department of Homeland Security took critical steps to funnel all flights from China into just 7 domestic U.S. airports.
- February 3: The CDC had a team ready to travel to China to obtain critical information on the novel coronavirus, but were in the U.S. awaiting permission to enter by the Chinese government.
- February 4: President Trump vowed in his State of the Union Address to “take all necessary steps” to protect Americans from the coronavirus–Pelosi ripped up her copy.
- February 5: The Senate votes to acquit President Trump, the impeachment farce ends.
- February 6: The CDC began shipping CDC-Developed test kits for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus to U.S. and international labs.
- February 9: The White House Coronavirus Task Force briefed governors from across the nation at the National Governors’ Association Meeting in Washington.
- February 11: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expanded a partnership with Janssen Research & Development to “expedite the development” of a coronavirus vaccine.
- February 12: The U.S. shipped test kits for the 2019 novel coronavirus to approximately 30 countries who lacked the necessary reagents and other materials. The CDC was prepared to travel to China but had yet to receive permission from the Chinese government.
- February 14: The CDC began working with five labs to conduct “community-based influenza surveillance” to study and detect the spread of coronavirus.
- February 18: HHS announced it would engage with Sanofi Pasteur in an effort to quickly develop a coronavirus vaccine and to develop a treatment for coronavirus infections.
- February 24: The Trump Administration sent a letter to Congress requesting at least $2.5 billion to help combat the spread of the coronavirus. And Pelosi invites everyone to come to Chinatown:
Despite Waters’ assertion, Trump never referred to the virus as a “hoax.” The left-wing talking point was birthed following a February rally in Charleston, South Carolina. The president told the crowd that Democrats were “politicizing the coronavirus” — an assertion that has proven to be true in recent weeks, given the Democrats’ repeated attempts to pack party agenda items in coronavirus relief measures. Trump added that Democrats’ desire to blame him is the “new hoax” — not the virus itself.
“One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia. That didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. That was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything,” Trump told the crowd.
“They tried it over and over. They’ve been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning. They lost, it’s all turning. Think of it, and this is their new hoax’” Trump added.
Waters’ remarks come as Americans across the country demand their leaders to reopen the economy so they can return to work and resume their livelihoods. Jobless claims now stand at roughly 36.5 million since the start of the pandemic. However, some leaders, like Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D), are remaining obstinate, while other governors, like Georgia’s Gov. Brian Kemp (R), are allowing their states to slowly return to normal.
Waters, by the way, admitted that she doesn’t want to see the economy opened back up during an interview on Spectrum News 1’s “Inside the Issues.”
“So we’re doing everything that we can give support to our constituents, to our citizens, to the people who work every day, who have families to take care of. So if we do that, this will support our states and our governors and not having to open back up. So that you know the small businesses that are in direct contact with people nail shops, beauty shops, barbershops, flower shops, these are people in touch with folks every day, and they’re risking their lives, and we don’t want them opened up. We are very sympathetic to the pressure that is being put on by the president of the United States and organize efforts of these protesters. We want the governors to hold the line. Be as tough as you can be. Be as thoughtful as you can be. Do everything you can to hold the line. I know that Governor Newsom is doing that. And any small steps that he takes, he is doing it with a lot of support. We are with you, governor. Hold the line,” she said after saying Trump and the protesters should be ashamed for wanting the economy opened back up. mad Maxine Trump economy
“You know our governors are under great stress. The protests that have been organized, the protests trying to intimidate our governors to open up everything are protests where the people participating in that should be ashamed of themselves. They should not be encouraged in any way. They should not be encouraged from the top leadership of this country to go out and do that,” she said.
At this point, Democrats like Waters are causing more damage to America than any pandemic.
