Supporters of President Donald Trump used the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to once again bring up the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead back in 2012, all as they ignore the nearly 200,000 Americans who have died from coronavirus under Trump’s watch.

Before we dig into this, let’s first point out that Republicans had cut security funding for American embassies on several occasions prior to the attack in Libya. A subsequent investigation by Republicans in Congress that took even longer than the 9/11 probe cleared former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing.

Yet, Republicans are still obsessed with Benghazi eight years later.

Their accusations are not only false, but Benghazi also pales in comparison to the nearly 200,000 Americans who have died because of Trump’s incompetent and reckless response to the pandemic. Trump also flat out lied to the American people because he admitted on tape back in February that he knew all along that COVID-19 is deadlier than the flu and that he downplayed it on purpose.

So, while Republicans are busy falsely claiming that “Hillary lied and people died,” Trump really did lie and hundreds of thousands of Americans have died. But Republicans refuse to condemn Trump or abandon him.

Americans leveled conservatives on Twitter for continuing to scream about Benghazi.

Republicans, as usual, are hypocrites. and they should be held legally responsible for the deaths of the hundreds of thousands who have died. Like Trump, they are complicit.
