House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had a terrible week.
After trying to secretly add a slew of left-wing items into the coronavirus relief bill this week — such as ballot harvesting and amnesty for DACA illegal aliens — Pelosi was criticized by many on both sides of the political aisle for putting Democrats’ wish list ahead of the needs of the American people.
Hours before it was reported that Senate Democrats caved and agreed to pass the Senate Republicans bill with only a few modifications, Pelosi suffered a total meltdown during a CNN interview.
While speaking with CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday afternoon, Pelosi snapped when asked about President Donald Trump saying he wanted to reopen the economy on Easter.
“I don’t have time to follow people’s twits…tweets, Twitters, whatever, tweets — so don’t expect me to comment on that,” Pelosi said.
“Well, even beyond Twitter, the President of the United States is signaling that he could open it up,” Bash said.
“What is your opinion on that?” Bash said pressing Pelosi.
“I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!” Pelosi said as CNN’s Dana Bash brought up Trump’s plans to open America back up for business soon.
“It is not scientific based — he’s notion mongering,” Pelosi slurred.

During a Fox News virtual town hall, the president and members of the coronavirus task force discussed the administration’s ongoing efforts to combat the Coronavirus.
Trump said he would likely open the country back up by Easter (April 12).
“I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” he said during a Fox News virtual town hall. Easter is just over two weeks away.
“Wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full?” Trump said in a subsequent interview. “You’ll have packed churches all over our country.”
“You can destroy a country this way, by closing it down, where it literally goes from being the most prosperous,” Trump said.
He suggested the time for workers to return to their jobs was a matter of weeks, not months, even as lawmakers and public health experts warn the virus could remain a problem into the summer.
“We can socially distance ourselves and go to work,” he said Tuesday, adding that workers can wash their hands more frequently or stop shaking hands to try to limit the spread of the virus.
Late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning — hours after Pelosi’s disastrous interview on CNN — Senate leaders and Trump’s White House struck a deal on a historic $2 trillion stimulus bill that will help push the American economy forward during the Coronavirus crisis.
The bipartisan breakthrough in the Senate capped days of heated negotiations after Pelosi flew into D.C. and tried slipping in a slew of unnecessary, left-wing proposals.
Below are some of the details:

It’s $2 Trillion. If every single American got $1200, that’s not even $400 billion.

The move came after Democrats voted against the bill three times in an attempt to include several radical policies such as amnesty for DACA illegal aliens and a nationwide ballot harvesting for the upcoming elections.
Democrats plan backfired badly.
The Senate will pass the Trump-Republican bill with very few modifications. It seems as if almost all of the ridiculous things Pelosi and Democrats tried to sneak into the bill has been removed.
