I haven’t heard the term “the wall” in like a year. But redskin presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren AKA “Chief Moneybags” brought it up this week, claiming that stopping building it would help stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
She has a bill.
Coronavirus poses a serious health, diplomatic, & economic threat, & we must be prepared to confront it head-on. So I’m introducing a bill to transfer all funding for @realDonaldTrump's racist border wall to @HHSGov & @USAID to combat coronavirus. https://t.co/8IEhBWRjeL pic.twitter.com/9oAF0A2lGT

Is she saying that the alleged wall – which does not exist, all Donald Trump is doing is repairing existing fencing – is helping the virus, or is she just saying that she would take the money from the project to fund the war against the virus?
Like, that there’s no money to fight it and the only way to deal with the issue is to cut the fence repair budget?
The fence repair budget is $2 billion of a total $4.8 trillion federal spending bill. Meaning it is .04% of the total budget.
Why doesn’t she take some of the $4+ billion we send to Israel?
Whatever it is she is trying to communicate here, I think even liberals see this and are like “wait hold up.”
The thing here is, people are scared of the Coronavirus, and using it for a nonsensical political stunt like this makes her seem really unserious. Especially when you consider the fact that the thing people are afraid of – this virus – is being spread by people crossing borders.
Why on earth would she do this?
Who would advise her to politicize a plague with racism charges?
The Tomahawk is losing her edge.
