We don’t want to spoil the ending, so read this quote and then click to see who said these words in response to a question about when/if Congress will finally approve another coronavirus stimulus package:
Well, you know, I think it needs to have additional assistance to individuals and this additional assistance to businesses and additional assistance to health care. You know, we may not get all of that in one package. I hope that we do. But we can also vote on things that have everything that people like, but maybe just not, you know, all of the things that people like. [Pols emphasis] Let’s move forward. Let’s pass them. Unfortunately, people like Nancy Pelosi, she called millions and millions of Americans, “Enemies of the state.” Enemies of the state. Her fellow Americans, she called enemies of the state. That hardly sounds like somebody who wants to actually make a deal on a relief package.
Who said it? The answer is after the jump…
ANSWER: No, it’s not President Trump, but nobody would blame you for attributing these inane ramblings to The Big Orange Guy in the White House.
These are the words of Senator Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) in an interview this morning on KOA radio.
We know what you’re thinking, and it’s not just you; Gardner now sounds exactly like Trump.
Gardner’s comments at the end about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are also completely wrong. Pelosi’s “enemies of the state” comments were about people who are attempting to interfere in the 2020 election. She did not say that “millions and millions of Americans” are “enemies of the state.” Fox News was very mad that other news outlets did not pick up on Pelosi’s comments…which is probably because other news outlets actually listened to what she said and decided not to invent some other meaning for her words.
