Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said 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, the AP reported.
McConnell said the federal government was distracted.
McConnell told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that the 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 usual Twitter trolls like Joe Walsh, Rick Wilson, Gary Legum, and others responded to McConnell’s statements by attacking the Republicans for stating the obvious as if it was an absurd suggestion. Of course, the Democrats’ sham impeachment distracted everyone. Congress wasn’t engaged until March.
THE IMPEACHMENT DISTRACTION
The Democrats have the unmitigated gall to blame President Trump for not acting sooner on Coronavirus.
All Democrats did in the fall and winter was to impeach the President and put him on trial.
Democrats paid zero attention to the virus. Yet, during the Senate trial, the President had the courage to ban China travel as the left attacked him. Biden, the media, and NBC News called President Trump a racist and a xenophobe.
The Impeachment was a sham. The two articles of impeachment were not constitutional.
As he formed the coronavirus task force in early February, the left was calling him a racist and a misogynist.
The sham impeachment had no chance of succeeding, but they went ahead with it and dragged it out anyway. Democrats are hell-bent on keeping the President and his administration from doing his job. Now they are trying to use it against him.
Nancy Pelosi wants to know what the President knew and when he knew it, but she had the intel about the virus at the same time the President had it.
Democrats couldn’t have cared less about the virus at that time.
Correction: Some assume McConnell was talking about the President when he made his comments, but he was talking about Congress since Congress wasn’t engaged until March. The lawmakers had the same intel the President had. We moved the first part of the story to the end and added a sentence to clarify.
