Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw took to the floor of the House of Representatives to condemn Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for blocking a coronavirus relief package for the American people supported by President Donald Trump to prevent him from receiving a political victory.

"She said the quiet part out loud," Crenshaw said. "This was never about what was best for the American people, never about honest policy disagreement, it was about preventing President Trump getting any credit. It's about politics."

Pelosi has come under fire in the past week after she expressed approval for a coronavirus relief package which was significantly smaller than the one supported by President Trump. Pelosi had previously demanded that the coronavirus relief package proposed be larger than Republicans proposed.

When asked why she supported a smaller relief package while initially demanding a larger one, Pelosi responded "new President."

Crenshaw went on to deride coronavirus pandemic-related lockdowns, alleging them to be unconstitutional, citing Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, and that they "destroy the lives" of Americans.

The Congressman also took aim at Democrats who have ignored pandemic-related lockdown rules while encouraging others to follow them, pointing to an incident in September where Pelosi was caught without a mask getting her hair done in San Francisco. "It's time to stand up against the hypocrisy of these so-called leaders," Crenshaw declared.
