Candi Cdebaca is a Denver, Colorado, Councilwoman. In case you had any remaining doubt about the existence of a condition known as Trump Derangement Syndrome, guess again.

Incredulously, Cdebaca publicly agreed with a Tweet that said, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.”

Cdebaca responded with, “#Solidarity Yaaaas!!”.

Imagine that. A local elected official who behaves publicly in such a troubling manner.

It’s deeply disturbing to do this while people are actually dying and there still remains much uncertainty with respect to the Coronavirus.

As you would hope would be the case in a compassionate, decent, civil society - the public reaction has been voluminous and critical. It should be.

By suggesting that you would support such an act, where someone would knowingly expose innocent people to a potentially deadly virus can and should be criminal conduct.

To attempt damage control, CdeBaca’s office released the following statement:

Councilwoman CdeBaca made a sarcastic tweet on Twitter to call attention to the Trump administration’s downplaying of the Coronavirus outbreak as a “hoax” no more dangerous than the common flu. Rather than conservative outlets making a four-day-old Tweet their focus on Super Tuesday, they should focus their energy on demanding a competent Federal response to this public health crisis instead.

The Colorado Republican Party directly responded and issued the following public statement regarding Cdebaca’s tweet:

“Councilwoman CdeBaca praising a social media post calling for Trump supporters to be infected with the coronavirus is simply disgusting. There can be no room in our politics for wishing harm on Americans who have different political beliefs. Democrats in Colorado and across the country need to condemn this evil statement,” “In light of these comments, the Colorado Republican Party is calling on Councilwoman CdeBaca to resign immediately.”

Make no mistake, Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. It’s only going to get worse as we get closer to the November 3, 2020 General Election.
