On “Sunday Morning Futures,” Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments “disgusting,” when Pelosi said that President Donald Trump denied the seriousness of the coronavirus. She added that his delays in ramping up the federal government’s response was a “deadly” mistake.

In her interview Sunday morning with CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, Pelosi said Trump’s “denial at the beginning was deadly, his delaying of getting equipment… to where it is needed is deadly, and now the best thing would be to do is to prevent more loss of life, rather than open things up so that, because we just don’t know.”
Graham lashed back.
“She said she’s blaming the president of the United States for people dying because of the way he’s led the country…That’s the most shameful, disgusting statement by any politician in modern history,” Graham said in an exclusive interview with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.
“This is the same speaker of the House who held up the bill in the Senate for days because she wanted same-day voting, she wanted carbon neutrality for the airlines, she wanted $75 million for the endowment for the humanities and $25 million for the Kennedy Center,” he said.
“She is the one that held up the package in the Senate for days to get the Green New Deal put in a recovery package, so it’s the most shameful, disgusting thing I’ve heard yet, and it needs to stop,” Graham added.
