Dem Rep. Ted Lieu Outrageously Claims Trump Gave ‘Permission To Attack’ Asian Americans


Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) went on MSNBC on Friday to outrageously claim that former President Donald Trump gave people “permission to attack” Asian-Americans by referring to the coronavirus as the “China virus” and “Kung flu.”

“Can you just describe the connection between the smear uttered so many times by the former president, we lost track, but repeated this week in an interview on Fox News, describing the coronavirus as the ‘China flu” or the ‘Kung flu.’ What happens after that?” anchor Nicolle Wallace said. “What happens after all of his millions of supporters hear that and their frustration and anger builds about the lockdowns or the other challenges of the pandemic? What happens with those kinds of smears?”

“I was at the House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on violence against Asian-Americans, and we had professors present studies and reports that showed there was a link between the racist rhetoric of the former president and the increase in hate crimes and hate incidents against Asian-Americans,” Lieu responded. “When the former president uses terms like Kung flu, racist terms in describing this virus, it gives people more permission to attack Americans who happen to be of Asian descent.”

“I am not a virus, and there is really no evidence whatsoever that Asian-Americans somehow transmit this virus more than anybody else,” he added. “In fact, you’ll more likely get the virus if you don’t get vaccinated, in you don’t wear a mask and if you don’t social distance.” – READ MORE
