• Democrats in Congress Fixated on Impeachment … as Coronavirus Loomed

    Surge Summary: Democrats have been mighty critical of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus situation – but no one wants to mention the way they dithered and wasted time on distractions involving “quid pro quo” while the pandemic was spreading.

    While a deadly virus was getting ready to attack America in January, the Democrat Party and its media allies were in an all-out attack on the commander-in-chief.

    Let’s revisit what was happening back in January of this year.  That’s the period of time when Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are suggesting that the president should have been taking dramatic steps to fight this virus.  Had he done so then, they claim we would not be in this mess now.

    I’m still waiting for them acknowledge the two months we lost because China lied about the outbreak in Wuhan.  But the left hates Trump more than it hates Chinese communists.

    President Trump did take dramatic action in January by cutting off travel to China.  All the critics viciously attacked his decision, and used it as another opportunity to attack Trump as a “racist.”

    But put all that aside for a moment.  What else was going on in January?

    On December 31st, China informed the World Health Organization (WHO) that it was dealing with a new virus, but insisted it was under control.  Two weeks later, on January 14th, the WHO told the rest of the world that there was nothing to worry about because Chinese authorities said that the virus wasn’t contagious.

    And what were Schumer and Pelosi doing at that time?  They spent the entire month telling us that the most important foreign phrase we needed to know wasn’t “coronavirus pandemic,” but the Latin phrase “quid pro quo.”

    They spent the entire month trying to impeach the president, and tying his administration in knots!

    They demanded that multiple officials leave their posts to testify about a phone call.  They tried to force the president out of office, nine months before the American people could render their own judgment about his leadership and policies.

    They did this knowing there was a looming threat on the horizon.  Yet they insist that Trump should have understood what was coming and should have done more.

    By the way, I’ve noticed in recent days that the media are cutting off the president’s press briefings.  Five of the six networks ended their coverage of Trump’s briefing yesterday once he started answering questions.

    But in January there was never enough time for “quid pro quo.”  Whenever Democrats wanted to talk about impeachment, the media covered every word of it.  Now that we’re dealing with the coronavirus, the media doesn’t want Trump talking to the American people.
