In a series of tweets, Constitutional scholar and conservative commentator Mark Levin called out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) Thursday for falsely implying that President Trump had no one in charge of overseeing the administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Retweeting an article refuting the claim Schumer had made on CNN, Levin rhetorically asked, “Where the hell was Chuck Schumer when this virus began breaking out?”
Levin, then, provided the answer: Schumer had been making media appearances with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) trying to prolong Trump’s Senate impeachment trial – essentially, shutting down Congress and preventing it from dealing with the deadly coronavirus:
“And where the hell was Chuck Schumer when this virus began breaking out? On TV everyday demanding witnesses to prolong his coup effort in the United Stares (sic) Senate.”
“He and Pelosi effectively shut down Congress for months. And where the hell was Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee?”
“Rather than holding hearings on China and the Wuhan virus situation, he turned his committee into a partisan political operation and later was the lead coup manager in the Senate. The Democrat leaders let down our country and continue to do so.”
In his post, Levin shared a link to an article by The Right Scoop explaining that, despite Schumer’s claim, President Trump says he had already appointed “a very talented Admiral” to oversee production and distribution of medical supplies.
The article goes on to quote Trump telling Schumer to “stop complaining” – but, conceding that he knows the Democrat never will, even if Schumer’s state gets ten times the medical supplies it needs.
