‘JUST SARCASM’: Dem Who Supported Spreading Coronavirus at MAGA Rallies Says Comment Just ‘Sarcastic’
A Democratic councilwoman from Denver deflected a growing backlash after she signaled her support for spreading the Coronavirus at ‘Make America Great Again’ rallies Tuesday; saying her comments were simply “sarcastic.”
“Councilwoman CdeBaca made a sarcastic tweet on Twitter to call attention to the Trump administration’s downplaying of the Coronavirus outbreak as a “hoax” no more dangerous than the common flu. Rather than conservative outlets making a four-day-old Tweet their focus on Super Tuesday, they should focus their energy on demanding a competent Federal response to this public health crisis instead,” said a statement from her office.

The Colorado Republican Party released their own statement shortly after, saying “Councilwoman CdeBaca praising a social media post calling for Trump supporters to be infected with the coronavirus is simply disgusting. There can be no room in our politics for wishing harm on Americans who have different political beliefs. Democrats in Colorado and across the country need to condemn this evil statement… In light of these comments, the Colorado Republican Party is calling on Councilwoman CdeBaca to resign immediately.”
