While the president and his administration are working tirelessly to get critical medical supplies and life-saving equipment to doctors, nurses, hospitals and patients amidst a global pandemic, guess what Democrats are doing?
Its leadership is drafting bills to assemble yet another Congressional committee, on taxpayers dime, to investigate the president and his response to the national crisis. You read that right. Instead of working shoulder to shoulder with our commander in chief to save lives and resuscitate our shut down economy, serial liar and conspiracy theorist Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and others on the left are plotting against the leader of the free world and members of Donald Trump's administration tasked with responding to the complex crisis.
As if investigating the president nonstop for the past 3 1/2 years and subjecting the nation to an extremely divisive 22-month special counsel probe and subsequent impeachment scam — based on hearsay by partisan bureaucrats — weren't enough. Apparently not, as the chief architect behind the debunked Russia collusion conspiracy and impeachment stunt, Schiff, has been sowing more lies, accusing the president of being slow to address the pandemic, with "catastrophic consequences."
"After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes," the House Intelligence Committee chairman tweeted recently. "Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic."
Translation: Democrats are exploiting the deadly pandemic by using it as a weapon to bludgeon the president during an election year in an underhanded attempt to derail his administration — once again.
A new low — even for hateful Democrats still suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Any reasonable citizen knows that partisan politics has no place during a time of war. And we are at war. Right now, the majority of the country is on lockdown, with millions of Americans being stripped of their basic freedoms including one's right to assemble, travel, worship and go to work. We're being blocked from enjoying public spaces such as national parks, hiking trails and forests that have been closed to combat an invisible enemy that, to date, has infected 430,000 Americans and killed more than 14,700 of us.
This national crisis has also cost millions of Americans their jobs and livelihoods.
"In the past three weeks, 16.8 million Americans have filed for unemployment aid," the Associated Press reported on Thursday. "The surge of jobless claims has overwhelmed state unemployment offices around the country. And still more job cuts are expected. The unemployment rate could hit 15% when the April employment report is released in early May."
But none of that seems to be of particular interest or concern to Schiff or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who's also on board with investigating the president's response to the pandemic. In a recent TV interview, Pelosi accused the president of "fiddling" while people are dying and called for conducting an "after-action review."
Shouldn't these political hacks be focused on helping citizens get back to work, or addressing the massive backlog of unemployment insurance claims, or tackling other pressing matters affecting the American people?
Clearly, the left's irrational hate and contempt for President Trump is stronger than its desire to solve the crisis and heal the nation. This is something voters must reject or the endless investigations — on taxpayers' dime — will never end.
When is enough enough?
