Mitch McConnell just blamed Trump’s COVID-19 failures on impeachment.— Joshua A. Geltzer (@jgeltzer) March 31, 2020
That’s wrong—dead wrong.
In fact, the opposite is true: impeachment warned McConnell & other Americans about exactly how Trump would screw this up.
I laid this out in @PostEverything: https://t.co/JmuZrPf9IY
Ignore the baselessness of the argument (if impeachment "distracted" Trump, then he's not fit to lead.), and consider why it's being made in the first place. I mean: does this do one thing to put one more mask on one more healthcare worker? Does it produce and deliver one more ventilator (and the technician to operate it? Those things are plug-in air conditioners, after all.)? Does it have anything to do with the crisis we face?
Or is it just the Republicans avoiding responsibility for being in charge of government? Again?
