Mitch McConnell recently made the remark that impeachment was a distraction for Donald Trump:

“I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment,″ the Senate majority leader said Tuesday.

Almost immediately Pelosi piled on:

McConnell got it wrong. Impeachment was a distraction- but for democrats. They were so hyper-focused on impeachment and obsessing on impeachment and the Russians that the pandemic blew right past them.

Nancy Pelosi

Jan. 30

Then the day Trump announces the travel ban

Then- nothing- until Feb 25

Adam Schiff

Schiff was totally preoccupied with one thing

The day Trump announced the travel ban. Schiff’s big thing? The trial.

Feb 23

Then finally, on Feb 25 Schiff runs to the front of the parade

And he still doesn’t get it. Then

He thought Corona was a beer until Feb. 25. His CDC assertion is false, but lying is what Schiff does better than anything else. adam still doesn’t know schiff.

Chuck Schumer

Up to Jan. 29: Impeachment. impeachment, impeachment

Jan. 31 Trump announces a travel ban. Schumer’s concern? John Bolton

Finally on Feb. 7. But only for a cup of coffee. Then back to bashing Trump.

Feb. 9. Let’s party!

Feb. 24- that darned Trump!

Feb. 24 Schumer hunts for the front of his parade

And we can’t go on without the Honorable Mentions:

Clearly, a whole lot was going on while democrats were bitching about Russia and impeachment. Such was their obsession that they were astonishingly distracted from the pandemic at hand and did nothing other than obstruct Donald Trump’s efforts to work to keep this country safe.

Naturally, to cover their asses and distract from the truth, Schiff wants a new commission with subpoena power.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff proposed a bipartisan commission with subpoena power to investigate the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The commission will examine U.S. government preparedness in advance of this pandemic, the Federal government’s response to it, and provide recommendations to improve our ability to respond to and recover from future outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics,” Schiff said in a statement on Friday.

As if we don’t know where this would go. Mark my words- it will be next hoax. There will be all sorts of hearings and accusations will thrown around and it will go on at the least until the election and then beyond if Trump is reelected. democrats are desperate to smear Trump with their own failures and distract from the truth. The left wing media, reeking of malpractice will happily join in. In the end, Trump will be exonerated but at a great cost- it will take the nation’s focus off the crisis and its remedy.

Not that democrats give a damn. The left wing media won’t give a damn either. This is how they will “pull together” for the sake of the country. democrats have contributed absolutely nothing to help the country. all they offered is criticism and ad hominem. They have become China’s echo chamber.

Schiff, like Pelosi and Schumer, is a fecal stain on the US government.  Schiff stains, if you will.
