As we’ve seen many Democrats politicize coronavirus in an effort to hurt President Trump, others appear to be taking things quite a bit further, praising the idea of infecting Trump supporters with COVID-19.
Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca retweeted a graphic from her government Twitter account that says, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can,” along with a comment of her own that reads: “#solidarity Yaaas!!”
The Daily Wire documented her history of far-left comments, including praising communism and self-identifying as an "anarchist."
"I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources," she said last year. "And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new. And I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources."
She continued: "And so, whatever that morphs into I think is what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary."
Some on Twitter reprimanded her for the tweet, which is still up, while others called on her to resign.

You must resign.
You should resign from the city council immediately you evil, soulless woman.— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) March 3, 2020
As a Coloradan I agree as well.— Janet A Fetus That Was Born Baxter (@JanetsaBode) March 3, 2020
Classless act. Resign, as clearly you don’t have the American people in your best interest.
Great look.— Ron Coleman (@RonColeman) March 3, 2020

The U.S. surgeon general said Tuesday people should not be afraid of the virus even as the number of cases in the U.S. surpassed 100.
"We should be cautious and take appropriate measures to prepare and protect ourselves, but we should not be afraid," Surgeon General Jerome Adams said. "We've been through this before, and no place in the world is better prepared to handle this challenge."
