Smug Hillary slammed when she ‘spells out’ redundant coronavirus plan for Trump

Failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton thinks she knows everything, including how to resolve the coronavirus crisis that President Donald Trump is already busy successfully handling.

Of course, what she certainly didn’t know is how to prevent four Americans from being killed during the Benghazi terror attack eight years ago — and despite having been repeatedly warned beforehand about the attack.

Regardless, in a tweet posted Thursday that was liked by over half a million low-information Americans, she smugly summed up her coronavirus approach with six steps.

Look:

Despite all the sycophants praising her simplistic plan, plenty of critics emerged as well to remind Clinton of some indelible truths.

Look:

As noted by several critics, almost everything she mentioned is already being implemented, save for free testing and emergency sick leave.

Free Testing/Emergency Sick Leave

Free testing and emergency sick leave have been delayed because of an effort by congressional Democrats to inject partisan proposals into a coronavirus spending bill.

“Legislation introduced by House and Senate Democrats has snuck in universal, employer-funded sick leave alongside temporary emergency measures, potentially shuttering employers and serving as a poison pill to slow congressional negotiations,” the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday.

“Democratic electoral groups, meanwhile, have already included the coronavirus in their attack-ad messaging, while left-leaning policy organizations have called for substantial reductions in incarceration and enforcement, in alignment with their preexisting policy goals.”

Democrats reportedly went so far as to include provisions pertaining to abortion in the coronavirus spending bill.

Fee Waivers

During a White House conference Tuesday with America’s major health insurers, Vice President Mike Pence announced that the participants would be waiving their copayments for coronavirus testing.

“[A]ll the insurance companies here — either today or before today — have agreed to waive all copays on coronavirus testing and extend coverage for coronavirus treatment in all of their benefit plans,” he said.

He added that the same holds true for Medicare and Medicaid.

“Medicare and Medicaid, last week, already made it clear to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries that coronavirus testing and treatment would be covered. These private insurance carriers have extended that as well,” he said.

Quarantines

It’s not clear whether Clinton meant that she’d like to see the same sort of draconian, horrific quarantines that have left the Chinese reeling.

The president has for his part thus far left it up to local governments to decide how to best handle any needed quarantining.

In a statement to reporters Thursday, however, he did indicate that he may implement domestic travel restrictions sometime in the future.

“We haven’t discussed that yet. Is it a possibility? Yes. If somebody gets a little bit out of control, if an area gets too hot,” he said when pressed by reporters.

“You see what they’re doing in New Rochelle, which is — which is good, frankly. It’s the right thing. But they’re not — it’s not enforced. It’s not very strong. But people know they’re — they’re being watched. New Rochelle. That’s a hotspot.”

Cancellations

Again, local governments and private companies have been handling this aspect of the crisis because America doesn’t boast an authoritarian, centralized government.

Instead, the president has responded in ways that are appropriate for a democratic society by instituting travel bans, launching a task force and promoting good hygiene.

Giving A Damn

As for this demand, there’s only one reasonable response:
