Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took time in this article to compliment Sen. Tom Cotton, (R-AR), for spotting the first case of COVID-19. Later in the article, they highlight a tweet by John Ashbrook, who is described as a “former McConnell aide.” Specifically, the article said “Former McConnell aide John Ashbrook also pointed this out Tuesday, stating that the pandemic is believed to have hit the United States the same day that House Democrats marched articles of impeachment to the Senate after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held off on moving forward on impeachment for weeks.”

Whether Democrats like it or not, the truth is that the Democrats’ impeachment march happened on January 15,2020, the same date as the CDC’s confirmation of the first case of COVID-19 in the US. The truth is that Democrats were focused on impeaching President Trump from the middle of November, 2019, through early February, 2020. That’s harsh but that’s reality.

That isn’t the harshest news, though. I wrote in this post that the House Homeland Security Committee held 3 hearings on the COVID-19 virus. The first hearing was on March 4, 2020. The third hearing was held on March 11. That means the committee of jurisdiction waited almost 2 months to hold a hearing on a deadly virus. It isn’t entirely the committee chairman’s fault.

The House and Senate stop in their tracks while trying a president for impeachment. That means we can only blame Chairman Thompson for wasting the second month to hold a hearing. Imagine what could’ve happened if we had serious people running the House and Senate. First, we wouldn’t have seen a tweet like this:

It’s time to return serious people to chairing committees. We can’t handle the partisan political hacks chairing House committees any longer. By comparison, Sen. Tom Cotton spoke out about the COVID-19 virus early:

On January 22, one day before the Chinese government began a quarantine of Wuhan to contain the spread of the virus, the Arkansas senator sent a letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar encouraging the Trump administration to consider banning travel between China and the United States and warning that the Communist regime could be covering up how dangerous the disease really was. That same day, he amplified his warnings on Twitter and in an appearance on the radio program of Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade.

Not every politician was distracted. Sen. Cotton paid attention. Meanwhile, idiots like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler battled to see who got more time in front of the camera.

It’s time to run both of these idiots out of Congress. They’re a total waste of time.
