While Daniel’s post was later deleted, CdeBaca stood by her tweet.

Her spokeswoman, Lisa Calderon, stated the tweet was supposed 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.”

Speaking to the Denver Post, she said: “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.”

She blamed the media for making a big deal out of the tweet.
