Councilwoman Under Fire Over Tweet About Spreading Virus To Trump Supporters

Colorado Republicans are calling for Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca's resignation for sharing the message.

Denver, CO – The Colorado GOP has called for the resignation of a Denver city councilwoman who applauded a social media post about spreading the coronavirus to supporters of President Donald Trump.

“For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can,” a Twitter user named Susan Daniel posted, according to KUSA.

Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca, a self-described Democratic Socialist, retweeted the message on Friday with the caption “#solidarity Yaaaas!!” followed by laughing emojis.

But the Colorado Republican Party wasn’t laughing.

And neither were numerous Twitter users who called for CdeBaca’s resignation and said the authorities should get involved, KUSA reported.

Lx Fangonilo, executive director of the state GOP, called for CdeBaca’s resignation in a press release.

"Councilwoman CdeBaca praising a social media post calling for Trump supporters to be infected with the coronavirus is simply disgusting,” Fangonilo said. “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.”

Daniel’s original post has been deleted, but CdeBaca did not delete her comment and has not backed down, KUSA reported.

CdeBaca’s spokeswoman, Lisa Calderon, said the councilwoman’s tweet was meant to be a “sarcastic tweet… to call attention to the Trump administration’s downplaying of the Coronavirus outbreak as a ‘hoax’ no more dangerous than the common flu,” the Denver Post reported.

She blamed the media rather than CdeBaca for the kerfuffle the post caused.

“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,” Calderón told the Denver Post.

The president didn't call coronavirus "a hoax." That allegation is "a hoax." Communists need to stop reading & believing their own fake news! They can no longer keep straight what's true & what's their own lies!

Wow! Thought I'd seen Liberals go low but this is beyond comprehension! Did the poster stop and actually THINK before posting this? She is threatening to deliberately spread a potentially lethal virus to fellow Americans who happen to disagree with her? Wow... Would love to know more about the original poster... So wouldn't the FBI!

Democrats are evil. Even those who never say or even think this sort of vile insanity. They vote for them so guilt by association. Evil - every damn one of them.

Isn't it interesting that they call Republicans awful and hateful people, then they say things like this? And what's worse is she will likely not get into trouble for it. Hopefully Karma will be swift and painful.

This is exactly what has converted so many former Democrats to Republicans. She says she's opposing Trump's comment, but she wants to do that by harming, and potentially killing, Trump supporters. And Dems call us "intolerant". She doesn't deserve to be in office, because she will never be able to serve all the population. She can only serve the ones who think like her. She wants to harm, even kill, the ones who don't. Despicable.

She should be fired immediately and put under house arrest so that she won't get that chance to spread the virus if she gets it. Her threat should be handled by Homeland Security and treated as a terrorist threat with intentions of spreading a pandemic virus.

President Trump said the media was creating a hoax through lies and hysteria; he did not deny the disease or the problems.

Ms. Calderon suggests that the President should take this seriously. UMMM he donated his entire salary this quarter ($100K) to help find a solution. I wonder what Ms. Calderon and Ms. CdeBaca has done to make a difference. I am going to bet - NOTHING but run their mouths. Also for the record - doctors and other health professionals and stepping up and stepping out and saying the media is causing this panic - similar to what President Trump actually said - that the media was creating a hoax not that the virus itself was.....

This woman’s tweet stayed up for awhile... then they ‘asked her to delete it’. That’s it!! But I posted under her tweet how I hoped she’d be the first to succumb to the illness, before she could expose everyone willfully, and Twitter canceled my account! So that’s the nature of Twitter, if you’re a Democrat threatening to kill Trump supporters you have to delete the post, but if you respond to the threat, you are eliminated. Buckle up!! The rabid Left has given the green light to attempt to destroy Trump supporters, but if we try to defend ourselves we will be destroyed. That about sums it up.
