McConnell puts the blame for the virus response where it belongs — on Democrats


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 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.



  1. How about getting real, and saying the COVID-19 virus originated in an American level 4 biowarfare lab, as stated by a PhD level expert on the matter who drafted American legislation on biowarfare

    • You sound like a chicom dip. How about naming your source rather than referring to a mysterious PhD expert? You can’t – because no American experts said what you claim. Try listenging to Senator Cotton instead, if you want the truth about it.

    • How about getting real, there are indications it came from a China lab.
      Get real, the origin is not the subject of this article.

  2. We need a virus free zone sign. Have any indispensable celebrities chimed in with some cluelessness?
    Journalists are having a hard time on the front lines as they save the republic with teleprompters.
    Maybe a free lip sync concert from some ultra talented contemporary musicians?
    Trump is doing all that he can within the parameters that he is constrained by.
    Look for the business sector to keep on winning with action over hot air and well what do you know that is where Trump comes from.
    McConnell and the GOP will win some and lose some but let’s hope there is no more getting owned by Pelosi and the Bolshevik squad.

  3. Trump had no significant delay in response.

    Mitch did, he had an impeachment trial, which was partly his fault, since he had major power to conduct his own hearings & investigations, to dispel the framing of Trump, discredit the dems, and he did nothing. He is an incredibly irresponsible person, and makes these remarks just to cover himself, not help Trump.

    Hewitt is an anti-Trumper RINO, a great place for Mitch to appear, where he will get no uncomfortable questions about China.
