DENVER (CBS4)– Denver City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca retweeted and replied to a tweet that read, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.” The original tweet, which has since been deleted, was posted from the account SuePersists.

CdeBaca retweeted the original tweet and then commented, “#solidarity Yaaaas!!” with laughing/crying/on side emojis followed by a closed fist and OK emojis.

The tweet immediately drew negative reaction from many followers.

CdeBaca represents Denver City Council District 9. Her office submitted this statement to CBS4: 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 coronavirus outbreak, first detected late last year in central China, has infected 90,000 people worldwide and killed some 3,100 of them. No one in Colorado has tested positive for the virus in Colorado.

    What a first year in office this avowed Democratic Socialist (commie) has had. First, she tries to get the city to hire her lovely live in lover at a $50,000+ salary to be her aide. Then she’s all for closing down the half way houses in Denver, putting scores of offenders who have worked their way out of prison in jeopardy of going back to hard time prison just because she has an overexaggerated sense of personal worth and moral superiority than the companies who provide the housing … because they also house illegal aliens who attempt to enter the country.

    Now she erupts in Twitterland showing not only a lack of propriety, but a deep-seated hatred for any who disagree with her. Any or all of these actions should disqualify her from being on the Denver City Council. What a pompous, self-important lightweight twit. She needs to go.

    Red Flag Law warrant. She needs professional help.

  3. Greg N says:

    For all that voted her in you must be so proud!

  4. Ethan Renke says:

    Why does this come as a surprise? She is a liberal, they are ok with killing babies, ok with illegal immigrants killing citizens, and apparently ok with threatening to infect their counterparts with a potentially harmful virus… and they call Trump supporters DEPLORABLE….

  5. Rick says:

    Im going to file a lawsuit against this person. That was a threat to people who can think for themselves.

  6. JR says:

    Just asking for a friend, what if a Police Officer, firefighter or anyone else in a public service position Would say something like this about a democratic rally. Think there would be any repercussions?

  7. jwmcneill00@gmail.com says:

    Deplorable comment. The Liberal press will give her a pass.

  8. Bill says:

    I didn’t realize Mr. Ed was still alive

  9. Vince says:

    Hopefully Karma bites her and she gets sick. Terminally.

  10. Jay says:

    If this were a republican counsel person making comments about a Bernie or Biden rally the liberal Dems would already have forced them out! I’ll bet nothing comes of it because the press in this town won’t even mention the fact that an elected public employee just threatened thousands of lives!

    She should immediately be removed from the elected office she is in. This is against Americans and not proactive in any sense. We are human beings first and foremost regardless of which political party we choose to endorse. To wish disease and death on Americans because of how she chooses to interpret what is or isn’t a ‘hoax’, is not an excuse to post something so detrimental to the lives of people who have died and are dying from a contagious virus…all to make a political stance.

    1. Joe Trevino Jr says:

      She needs to be removed from office. She has proven that she represents certain people and not equally. She is biased and I gather a racist.

  12. Kevin Kerwin says:

    When the dems keep saying Trump called this a hoax we all know it wasn’t about the Virus it was the Dumbocrats saying he didn’t react to the threat fast enough…. That is the hoax he got called out shutting down flights. and the Dems said he was over reacting turns out he was right the the Dumbocrats were wrong. Get your facts right before you come after Trump and the Deplorables you disgusting liberals. FU FU FU

    1. Cheryl says:

      Exactly. Trump NEVER said Coronavirus was a hoax. They just pick and choose buzz words and use them to their careless whims. They and in this case HER, should be held accountable just for the fact she is an elected official spreading propaganda in AMERICA a place that elected her. She has lost all focus on what the office represents. AMERICANS.

    2. Cheryl says:

      I urge everyone to contact her office and let them know this is not how American people want to be represented. I don’t want any political figure wishing diseases and death upon us.

  13. Kevin Kerwin says:

    Hopefully she’ll be arrested… This was disgusting to hear about…

  14. Kevin Kerwin says:

    She needs to step down. This was a threat against our President…

  15. Omia Cat says:

    I work at an airline, have acquaintances everywhere – This is incredibly insensitive

  16. Curtis Sliwa says:

    She looks like something at Alameda and Federal who hates Trump.

  17. Bev Driscoll says:

    How could she even remotely think this was appropriate??

  18. Renee says:
