Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) got handed a pile of facts on Tuesday after blaming impeachment as the reason they weren’t prepared for the coronavirus crisis our nation is currently going through.

President Donald Trump and Republicans are so desperate to shift blame for the coronavirus pandemic that they have begun trying to pin it on the Democrats and impeachment.

During a radio show appearance, McConnell really pushed the new GOP talking point.

“It came up while we were, you know, tied down in the impeachment trial,” McConnell claimed of the coronavirus. “And I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything, every day, was all about impeachment.”

This coming from a man who repeatedly insisted that Democrats were incapable of legislating and investigating at the same time. Now he is admitting that Republicans were the ones who couldn’t multitask.

Furthermore, Trump himself was not even directly involved in the proceedings as he chose to stonewall subpoenas and refuse to cooperate. Furthermore, he was being briefed about coronavirus from the beginning and he’s the one who chose to do nothing. He didn’t ask for help from Congress and he didn’t declare a national emergency or inform the American people.

Instead, Trump ignored the impending crisis and went golfing. He also went on a retaliation campaign.

Twitter users were merciless in their condemnation of McConnell.

Clearly, this new lie is not going to fly.
