The Dems have a lot of nerve sitting here trying to attack President Trump for not “acting sooner” in regard to the Coronavirus.
Are you kidding me?
While they were unfurling the biggest sham impeachment in the history of the United States, President Trump was forming a task force (that CNN called “racist” and “misogynist”) and was halting flights from China.
And while he was doing all of that – and could have used help from the Dems and media – they were all focused on pushing this PR stunt that never had a snowball’s chance in hell of passing the Senate.
Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is coming forward and calling out the Dems.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial distracted the federal government from the novel coronavirus as it reached the United States in January, despite warnings at the time from public health experts and members of Congress about the spread of the virus.
McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that the deadly virus “came up while we were tied down on the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment.″
The Trump administration has been severely criticized for its slow response to the spreading pandemic, especially for the shortage of coronavirus testing kits when the infection first spread to the U.S. from China. Trump initially downplayed the crisis, comparing it to the seasonal flu and declaring it may go away on its own. The administration also has been criticized for not supplying needed protective medical gear for health care workers tackling the crisis.
McConnell said Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas was among the first in Congress to raise an alarm about the virus. Cotton, an outspoken critic of China’s communist government, has said he does not trust China to act truthfully about the virus.
“He was first, and I think Tom was right on the mark,″ McConnell said. ”Tom figured this out early, and he was absolutely right.”
Cotton said earlier this month he was looking into holding China “accountable” for the coronavirus pandemic, which he referred to as the “Wuhan coronavirus.″ The virus originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan. [AP]
Thankfully, GOP and GOP leadership is calling this out. This must be our mantra from here on out – that the Dems wasted money, time, and resources that could’ve gone to battling Coronavirus on a sham impeachment.
How could the government focus on this Godawful virus, when every ounce of their energy was poured into that bogus coup attempt.
It’s the Democrats fault 100% for any “slowness” or “failure.”
