Michigan Democratic Rep. Haley Stevens seemed to lose her cool while speaking on the House floor Wednesday about how Americans should not panic about the coronavirus pandemic.
"Our country faces a battle with the pandemic," she said. "The biggest battle we have faced as a nation together in generations, amidst uncertainty we work to keep Americans alive by stopping the spread of COVID-19."
"In these times, heroes will be made and not selected. We are in a global pandemic. Many Americans may perish unexpectedly and suddenly In unfair circumstances. These are not pleasant words to hear."
"The outbreak of COVID-19 has spread throughout our land. Listen to the scientists and doctors who have spent a lifetime in this space. Listen to Dr. Fauci, this is not a moment to provide the false comforts of times past," she said before running out the clock on her minute. She continued anyway, shouting: "I rise before you adorned in these latex gloves, not for personal attention. I rise for every American who is scared right now!"
"Sharing in the profession with those who have not come before you. Similar times of trying medical needs, wars and flus past. You will see darkness. You will be pushed -- and our society needs you to stand together at this time. Our country loves you. To our doctors and our nurses, I wear these latex gloves to tell every American to not be afraid," she shouted.
