Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell weighed-in Wednesday on the global Coronavirus pandemic; saying Congressional Democrats’ non-stop impeachment obsession “distracted” the government from the growing threat.
“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial. And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment,” said the Senator.
“I have to tell you that in mid-January and late-January, unfortunately, Washington, especially the Congress, was consumed with another matter — you may recall the partisan impeachment of the president,” added Sen. Tom Cotton.

Congressman Jerrold Nadler slammed President Trump’s travel restrictions on China just weeks ago; calling his move to slow the spread of the disease “irrational” just days before the crisis spread across the country.
“Do you think that it is appropriate for the CoVID-19 response?” one member asked of the lawmaker.
“No, I don’t. Because it’s irrational and it doesn’t help public health,” said Nadler.
“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysterical xenophobia,” added former Vice President Joe Biden.
“There’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism, where people aren’t patroning (sic) Chinese restaurants,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

A NEW LOW: NY Times Article Blames Coronavirus Outbreak on ‘Evangelicals’ and Religious Americans
A sickening new article published by the New York Times Friday viciously claims the “road to Coronavirus hell” was “paved by Evangelicals” and other religious Americans; directly blaming hundreds of deaths and thousands of infections on people of faith.
“Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown,” writes Katherine Stewart.
“By all accounts, President Trump’s tendency to trust his gut over the experts on issues like vaccines and climate change does not come from any deep-seated religious conviction. But he is perfectly in tune with the religious nationalists who form the core of his base. In his daily briefings from the White House, Mr. Trump actively disdains and contradicts the messages coming from his own experts and touts as yet unproven cures,” adds the author.
“When a strong centralized response is needed from the federal government, it doesn’t help to have an administration that has never believed in a federal government serving the public good. Ordinarily, the consequences of this kind of behavior don’t show up for some time. In the case of a pandemic, the consequences are too obvious to ignore,” Stewart concludes.
