A Denver councilwoman has come under fire for praising a now-deleted tweet from a user who said they would attend "every MAGA rally I can" if they are infected with the new coronavirus.
Candi CdeBaca (D) tweeted "#solidarity Yaaaas!!" in support of the message:
And surprise, she's a supporter of Bernie Sanders - whose staffers were caught on hidden camera espousing the virtues of throwing rich people in literal gulags while they redistribute their wealth.
The Denver city councilwoman who’s encouraging people with coronavirus to go to Trump rallies to spread the virus is a... Bernie Sanders supporter. I bet you’re all shocked. 🙄— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) March 3, 2020
This is what so many socialist Democrats like her really want, to kill Republicans. Absolutely sick. pic.twitter.com/L5H2IT5QCu
In response to the tweet, CdeBaca's office said: "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."
The Colorado Republican Party, meanwhile, said in response: "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."
