The Polk County Democrats took to Facebook on Wednesday after a press conference by Gov. Kim Reynolds. The group shared an article about Reynolds allowing restaurants, salons and barber shops to open in all 99 counties on Friday.

Polk County Democrats shared the story with their own alternative headline:


Earlier in the week the same group referred to Vice President Mike Pence as an “outsider.”

“Trump says we shouldn’t let outsiders in because they might carry the virus. Apparently Kim Reynolds didn’t get the memo when she brought Mike Pence here last week.”

It is good to know in a time of national emergency during which Democrats believe Americans should be forced to stay home they can still find time for divisiveness and partisanship.
