Republicans Panic After Dem Rep. Calls Out Don Jr. Over His Coronavirus Comments

Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA) appeared on MSNBC on Friday where he responded to recent comments made by Donald Trump Jr. claiming that Democrats are using the coronavirus to undermine the presidency of his father.

“For them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here and kills millions of people so that they can end Donald Trump’s streak of winning is a new level of sickness,” Trump Jr. said.

Garamendi was asked by host Hallie Jackson if he had a response for the president’s son.

“He should not be near me when he says that,” the congressman said.

“Why not?” Jackson asked.

“There would be a serious altercation,” he replied. “That is just totally outrageous. I can assure you that there’s not a Democrat or Republican in Congress that wants anybody to be sick.”

Republicans didn’t seem to happy with Garamendi’s comments. Take a look at how they reacted on Twitter:

It appears that these Trump supporters are quick to forget all the violent threats the president has made. If you ask me, they sound like hypocrites.
