Adam Schiff Claims Coronavirus Would’ve Been Avoided if Trump Impeached
Fanatic Democrat Adam Schiff went so far as to literally blame the deaths of 50,000 Americans as a result of the coronavirus epidemic on Donald Trump, making the reaching claim that the casualties from the disease could’ve been avoided if his February impeachment attempt on the President made it through the U.S. Senate.
Schiff had been speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Saturday. Watch the segment:

“There are 50,000 Americans now who are dead, in significant part because of his incompetence… Because of his inability to think beyond himself and put the country first.”
Schiff only tangentially connected the coronavirus epidemic to Trump’s administration, claiming that he had exposed Trump’s supposed unwillingness to work with Democrat state governors and elected officials during his appearance trial. Schiff claims if the Senate had been willing to accept this as grounds for removal from office, the coronavirus epidemic could’ve been largely avoided.
However, numerous prominent Democratic governors and mayors have spoken openly of the gainful cooperation they’ve had with the White House during the national coronavirus epidemic, most notably New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Cuomo has stated that the “plain truth” is that Trump has delivered for the state of New York, throwing a considerable political wrench into the far-fetched and nakedly partisan allegations that Schiff is continuing to peddle.
The United States has the greatest amount of coronavirus deaths in the world by numbers alone(if one accepts China’s extremely dubious self-reported coronavirus casualty statistics), but deaths per capita in the United States have been considerably less of those observed in southern European countries such as Italy and Spain.
The President isn’t God. He doesn’t have the ability to turn off a virus new to nature from spreading throughout the country, and by all accounts, he’s responded to the situation effectively according to governors and mayors of the Democratic Party. Sadly, the reality of the situation isn’t enough to deactivate Schiff’s fanatic partisanship.
