Now McConnell is blaming impeachment for failure to respond to coronavirus

By Oliver Willis -March 31, 2020 10:31 AM


Trump actually did address coronavirus during impeachment, but he didn't take it seriously.

From the March 31 edition of Salem Radio Network's "The Hugh Hewitt Show":

HUGH HEWITT: Let me talk to you a little about Sen. [Tom] Cotton. Politico yesterday recognized him as the first to the bell. In your experience in the Senate, was Sen. Cotton the first one to say, "Hey, Leader, hey, Mitch, this is a deadly situation, I do not trust the Chinese." Was he first?

SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): He was first and I think Tom was right on the mark and it came up while we were, you know, tied down in impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything, every day was all about impeachment.

Tom figured this out early, and he was absolutely right.

McConnell isn't the first Republican to claim that the impeachment trial, which ended Feb. 5, is to blame for Trump's delayed and inadequate response to the coronavirus. Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner blamed the impeachment for Trump's lax response, and Texas Sen. John Cornyn said Trump "did lose 'precious weeks' forced to defend himself," although Trump never testified or attended the trial.

Well #Moscow Mitch, you have just proven that your traitor cannot walk and chew gum at the same time, but you and your racists team and his racists team now know how to walk and chew gum when it comes to racism, and then when a pandemic unfolds, your treasonous leader said it was HOAX, and again he couldn't walk and chew gum again and that you and your team also also could not walk and chew gum and in doing your Constitutional duty, again, but you can use race as a fall back card..................................and as for Hewitt he's just like the racist that he always was........................

2. I knew that was coming..... Because govt can't do more than one thing at a time?

Funny, they did not stop trying to gerrymander and all the other voter suppression tactics, dismantle the Affordable Healthcare Act,
Use the Census for political benefit, amongst all the other evil things they tried to do. Somehow, they managed to do those things. But not this.

3. Impeachment made Trump say it was a hoax and we'd be down to zero victims by early March?

Ok. Run with that.

5. Cool story bro.

Republican Senator's weren't distracted. You clearly indicated at the time there was nothing to consider. Of course just that thought might have been a bit of an overload for the intelligence of your fellow Republican senators.

The White House resident narcissist was so distracted that he couldn't fly down to merde-a-la-mode to party and play golf. Oh wait, ... never mind.

Bullshit Mitch.

YOU decided to let an arrogant, incompetent crook remain in office.

15. Moscow Mitch is just lying,

He's trying to excuse his failure away too. He stands to lose not only his leadership role, but his Senate seat.
